On Friday I got a drop dead gorgeous kit of Laurel Hill ebony crochet needles as a gift.
I had to try them out at once and they are smooth as silk to work with, with a very good finger grip.
I grabbed some baby wool and started first one preemie hat, and then another.
First I embellished the red hat with a self composed flower, but I have since then learned that the small babies skin are to delicate for embellishments, so I will save the flower for a future baby afghan. It looks good though, so I will keep the idea in mind for other future crocheting too :-)
Can you tell I am a little restless today - my sewing machines is in for a service…….
I am going away for a while in just a few days - no machine needed then :-)
I am still wondering what hand work to bring, that will not get caught in any security controls.
