I have had crocheting on my mind lately. I would like to expand my collection of my favorite crochet hook. They are made by Aero and are very smooth. They glide easily through the yarn. Unfortunatly I can’t walk into a local shop and buy them. 😦 I found a place, Crochet-Knit on the internet that sells them and I may order the set. These hooks also do not have the US size convertions on them. I found a conversion chart on line at Yarn Forward that will help me.
I am also wanting to expand my experiences with different yarns. For my birthday my MIL gave me a gift certificate to Michael’s. I went there determined to get some yarn I hadn’t tried before, so…. I picked out four patterns, believing that I would be able to find something there to work with. Boy, was I wrong! I found nothing worth getting and the only yarn that I was able to use would have cost me over $60.00 to make a sweater. I decided to keep my gift certificate until something went on sale. I know Michael’s is not the greatest place to get good yarns, but that is where the gift is from.
Now that soccer season has begun, I may not have the time to crochet as much as I would like. *sigh*
