Hooks at twenty paces Pinky

Perhaps not in the same league as "Longswords at 20 paces" or even a bit of sorcery at the said distance, but when a crafty pal urged me to restart my crochet well I had to give it a go. I haven't done any for a very long time and this one is more utilitarian than pretty but Thank You Pinky, (http://pinky-pinkysworld.blogspot.co.uk/).  A big welcome to my newest crafty pal, hope you enjoy being here. Also a big thank you to all my crafty pals for their comments and inspiring work. So without further ado here is my wee bit of crochet. Hope you all have a great weekend, I cannot believe it is already March. Hugs to all.

  2. This looks lovely, Flora. Very useful and I love the colour.

    I used to love my crochet, but because of arthritis in my hands, my crochet is limited to flowers these days. But years ago I used to crochet summer tops and baby clothes.

    Enjoy a lovely weekend xx

  18. Crochet must be in the air at the moment. This is a really pretty shade. Having not done any crochet for years I have just started a summer sweater in a deeper pink than you are using Flora. Perhaps I should have begun with something less ambitious!!! I might get it finished by next summer! LOL. Christine xx
