I just finished my first crochet baby sweater! I’m so proud of myself. There’s so much satisfaction when you create something with your own hands. But the best part of any project is the planning. I love flipping through pattern book after book, dreaming of the projects I could create. I have a friend whose favorite part is buying the yarn, but I’m too cheap to do that until I’ve finished my current project. But looking for patterns is free at Manhattan Public Library! Whether you’re into crochet, quilting, or wood work, we have a wealth of materials for you to browse through and dream about.
