Degree result

My daughter's past her degree with a 2;1.Isn't that just wonderful?I'm so proud.She has also won a place at the New designers show .

She is a textile designer.She likes to recycle and has used video tape, newspaper, old t'shirts, bottle tops,All knitted or crocheted .All very unusual materials but the finished articles are amazing.We will be going o the show tomorrow I'll take loads of pictures to share her work.I'm so proud of her,

My latest crochet hook ,Addi and Prym .The Prym has a lovely rubber handle that make it very comfortable.to use, I got mine from Purplelinda. They are very cheap .I think they are a nice addition to the ever expanding hooks collection.

The Addi I'm not that keen. on. The handle has ridges that make it a bit rough in my hand.Isn't it funny that every brand of hook is so very different to work with and we all have our favourites.I have so many brands of hooks .I love the crochet lite.They are very difficult to get in UK. I've managed to get some on eBay.Does any one know a stockist in the UK ?What is your favouite hook?


  1. Congratulations to your daughter and to you for supporting her to get her degree. I mostly use metal hooks, so do not know what crocheting with those brands is like. Good luck on your search for the lite ones.

  2. I remember how excited we were when our daughter gained her degree. It's great to feel really fantastic about something and you'll be so proud on graduation day. Enjoy it all!
