I’ve been collecting a number of crochet hooks lately and always seem to be loosing them. I get a small collection back every time I tidy from ones that have escaped under the sofa, behind the cushions, and they always tumble out of the wool bags I hide behind the sofa. So I definitely needed a safe place to store some. I also wanted a method that would allow me to transport hooks and the essentials like needle, thread, scissors and safety pins around with me as I travel back and forth to my mums. After glancing through a few images of hook cases I decided to make up my own. This meant I could try out the Sweetpea stitch I had seen in one of my crochet stitch directories.

Although my first love is crocheting I thought I would share one of my knitting designs, this has been quite a popular pattern. The reason I think is because this can be started & finished in an hour. Knitted with lovely Flag/Butterfly Yarn which comes in such gorgous colours and using 15mm needles.I think this one would be lovely for a Bride or Bridesmaids, it would certainly be a little different…Been a little busy this week-end but still working on my next project Autumn/Winter wear………the first one is almost ready …
