My Christmas gift was really beautiful yarn to make a pretty blanket and a lovely birch wood hook.
I was quite confident I could remember how to crochet - my grandma taught me when I was about 12 years old. But wooo there is now UK and USA terms that got me totally confused.
A friend popped over and got me organised yesterday - I've even lost the knack of getting tension right (or maybe I never had it?). Anyway she got me off and away until my new hook just snapped. That caused a bit of laughter between us girls. How wonderful that the hook comes with a 5 year warranty. I've sent off my information and a nice new hook will be posted to me. Excellent service and guarantee.
I've completed my first Hexi for 2016 - it is only a test one. Now I'm trying to find a 3.25mm hook - the local shops tell me they do not stock that size in New Zealand......
The Downstairs Maid - its an easy listen - very Downton Abbeyish.
After days of study I need an easy listen nothing to make my brain work more than it needs to.
