The hooker in me!

with No Comments

bagI have never been any good at knitting. Both my Grandmothers tried relentlessly to teach me with limited success. It is just something with the fingers – it hurts my little-finger whenever I try. And I just don’t have the patience so everything I try to make looks awful. However, for some reason or another this horrid relationship does not extend to crochet. I did a bit of this years ago but recently (I don’t remember why) I decided to begin doing this again. At first I thought I could just learn of the internet but then I found the book: The Happy Hooker from the Stitch N’ Bitch collection and it has been a great help.

scarfSo far I have tried out a couple of patterns from the book and they where really fun to do. However, in the future I will try out some new things for myself. The thing is though that it is so relaxing (for me at least) to do and so easy to take around with you (except on planes). It also give such an instant pleasure since most things are quite easy to finish of. So far I have made a small bag (which I am not sure what to do with since I never use things like that so it will probably go to a friend) and a very nice scarf with green and pink flowers (for my sister). So stay tuned for more.

I actually began knitting after all in spring 2009, but I still love to crochet!
