New gear

I broke several hooks lately (including my favorite ever bone hook) so I tried to refurbish my stock. Look at the set I received this morning. There’s a 4.5 mm, a 5 mm (made of Olive wood no less!), a 8 mm and a 10 mm. Can’t wait to try them and see if they’re as smooth to work with as my new Susan Baites. They were made by this guy (also here).
And now I have to stop looking at his new listings or I’ll want more..! 😛

I also received lots of pretty Colinette yarn from Maylin: 5 hanks of Point 5 (Castagna), 5 hanks of Prism (blue parrot) and this skein of Fandango that wants to become the contrasting color of a Disco beret.

I’m currently working on yet another Roselette for my friends daughter. I’ll share a pic as soon as it’s done (= v. soon). I had a vision of a new design for a Kureyon sweater the other night though. It was for a knitted sweater… I might pick up the needles again soon.. 😛

Oh and yesterday I finally made all the pics I needed to finish the pattern for my Wee Booties. Now to work on some layout and wording the instructions and that will be a new pattern.. (will be looking for a few testers btw).

A Banjo Bag spotted here !! Speaking of which… I’ve finally added all your great pictures to the Gallery !! 😀

    Those hooks are very pretty, I wonder if new hooks would make my crocheting any better? ;0)
    I am up for testing a sewing pattern if you need me.

    What fabulous crochet hooks, I just went and looked at the shop and had difficulty not buying! Can’t wait to see what you make with the Colinette.
