Gal with a Hook

Never let it be said that this is not an equal opportunity blog. As evidence, I present my latest acquisition: a set of steel crochet hooks.

Yes, there has been stealth crochet happening in this studio, as well as stealth knitting!

And more importantly, I want to thank all of you so much for leaving comments, even though I have been so ridiculously busy that I haven't been able to visit you very much. You all rock! And it's so awesome to read comments! You all regularly make my day. :)

Back to hookin'.

You might be able to convince me to knit with beads but crochet? I don't think so, only because I don't need another hobby ;-)

I have been very interested in experimenting with crochet. I am still getting my crochet mojo rev'd. Hopefully soon I will get started on a project.

It kind of looks like a surgical tray. Very top notch photography happening in your studio!

I do such a tiny bit of crochet that it really doesn't count! Hope to get to see your stealth projects soon :).

Ah, steel crochet hooks..... Both a joy to use and the bane of my existence, all depending on the pattern. :-)

I hope you have a good time with them!

Rosemary- I own a complete set of crochet hooks- but I rarely ever use them.
Nope, the only thing they're good for is beading or picking up the odd dropped stitch.

Not that I drop stitches, you understand.

If someone asks if I crochet I almost always say 'no just occasional edgings on knitted thing'...and then remember the afghans I made for my sisters, the shawl I made for my best friend when she had her first child, and the filet crochet curtains I made for my first house and realise....I guess I do.

But I never learned properly so that must be why I'm in denial. As a Canadian I used both American and English pattern books which use the same terms for different stitches which only added to my overriding concern that I didn't really 'get' crochet.

Can't wait to see what you are up to!

I am really intrigued to find out what you're hookin'. I just discovered the joy of hookin' and I want to learn more. ;)

Talk about curious, I am. I used to crochet before I taught myself to knit. I think there are ways to combine the 2 skills, knitting with crochet.

I will check back and see what you are up to.

Mmm. I've seen some of the stealth knitting and OMG are you guys and gals in for a treat.

Rosemary you do gorgeous work.

Rosemary, I'm excited to see what you're up to! I've not done much crocheting in recent years, so maybe you can tempt me back to the hooking side. ;-)
