I was over at plus3 crochet where she introduced me to the idea of making a beekeepers quilt. Heart skipping arms pumping excited at the thought. But alas I have the same problem she does I can’t knit . . . but she has solved that problem too and found this pattern on raverly for crocheters like ourselves. So que excitement again I can make the beekeepers quilt. I decided I would use 8ply wool and a size 3.5 hook. I wanted to use the 8 ply because it’s what I use mostly in all my crochet projects and I want the beekeepers quilt to be made up of my left overs. In other words I’m trying to save a dime. I think the change in wool worked fine probably not as floopy as 4ply but still works, just wont stuff them as much just want them to be little puffy and squishy not round and hard. I have also taken Casey’s lead on this project and joined the Cal on Raverly for the One a Day Project. I’ve been on raverly for ages and been searching patterns and loving it but I have never really used it to it’s full potential so now is the time and these little hexipuffs are going to do it for me. You can also link up over with Carole at Gingerbread Girl.This is my 1st finished hexipuff
Not to squishy but just right. Though after completing one of these I’m not sure if I will be able to make one a day it took me forever to make one, but I will try to post a photo of my progress every Tuesday. Wish me luck.
Now I’m off to make Buntings while little princess is asleep and have a coffee and a Tim Tam double choc coated of course. But before I go does anyone out there suffer the same problem as me. I lost my hook over the weekend now it was just a plain size 4mm hook nothing special and I had another one in the house so I did not need to go out and buy a new one, my hooky time was not effected in anyway, the hook I had was exactly the same but for some reason I feel my crochet is not quiet working up the same. The hooking is just not running as smooth I find my self dissatisfied with my creations but for all my hooking I can’t figure out why. There was nothing special about the lost hook and the new hook is exactly the same, even the same brand. Do you have a favourite hook that just seems to hook nicer than the rest or am I just one crazy hooker.
Kisses to all
