In the intervening time I have got into crochet in quite a big way and can be found hooking pretty much anywhere, but especially with Hookery at the Bookery currently on weds evenings. Mum got me a great crochet book for my birthday back in April (now the set text for Hookery) and I have managed to complete some of the projects and been inspired by others.
The book with hook roll and wee purse
Rosy Posy Tea Cosy........which inspired a Cafetiere Cover
Shell Scarf - which has been put to one side as a birthday present
not 1, not 2 but 3 Beanies
and the very practical Patchwork Bag
