I’m trying out a new crochet hook – metal tips with square wooden handles by kollage. I will say that I didn’t have any aching wrists after doing what you see above last night! My pinky got a little stiff, probably from wrapping around the square, but not in a bad way – more in a “I don’t use this muscle” kind of way.
The pattern (found here) gave me some issues. I had a really hard time getting gauge, and ended up dropping from and H to an E hook. That’s a big drop, but I do find that this designer’s patterns tend to be like that for me. I also had trouble reading the pattern, as I found I needed info found in both the written directions and the chart, and neither were as clear as I would have liked. I’ve finally worked it out, and hopefully I’m on my way now!
I bought the Colourscape Folk collection for my next knit sweater, but first I have to finish a pair of socks for my MIL’s birthday. Maybe. I’m not sure – I’m so lousy at obligation knitting. I always run out of motivation. I try not to tell anyone I’m making them a gift, because then I feel pressure, but this time I forgot!
Hope everyone is having a great Monday!
