Last week was H♥ppy Crochet week, as I received so many lovely things in the mail :) Yay!!!
The uber talented Katherine Kowalski, hand crafted these beautiful wooden crochet hooks. The darker one is made of Cocobolo Rosewood and is set with a Pink Tourmaline. The lighter hook is made of Tulipwood Rosewood and is set with a diamond :) They are so beautifully turned and smoothed down, they are a pleasure to work with! Thank you Katherine :)
The other bright and happy hooks I bought from Jenn Edwards lovely Etsy shop. The handles are covered in lovely polymer clay flowers, all handcrafted by Jenn.
I have been a busy little bee, crocheting these little circles for a hexagon blanket. I have got to use up some of my ever expanding stash of yarns...for these bright happy's I have used Rowan's Handkit Cotton, which although expensive, is a dream to work with.
I need to make 300 hexagons...I am about 30% of the way...
The blanket will live across the TV room sofa, and hopefully (when time stretchhhhes for me), will be joined by several equally bright cushions and ottomans :)
Last week also saw the arrival of my little Victorian Crochet box, filled with original bone crochet hooks of all sizes, as well as small notions, sewing threads, a pair of (still functional!), scissors only to mention a few. I bought it on eBay and am mightily pleased with it...I so do love old things...
Last week also saw major upheaval in our house...we are re-installing a huge security system, and fixing the leaks in the roof (which we are replacing in full)....all in all : not fun!
However: a good week awaits...our knitting group is meeting on Wednesday!
Lots of Love,
