I just had to give a plug for my new book The Crocheter's Design Companion, now available on Amazon and https://www.createspace.com/3476247. It's a compact notebook that will slip right into your crochet project bag and help you keep track of the patterns you are working on, the yarn(s) you are using, and any modifications you make. There are graph paper pages for designing your own crochet projects, including in the round (amigurumi), and useful reference charts with hook sizes, yarn weights, and a glossary of crochet terms and abbreviations included as well.
