I must admit I’m more of a hooker, though I do a little of both. Yes, of course, I’m talking about crochet and knitting, These are such relaxing hobbies and I’ve always loved keeping my hands busy, whether with crafts such as these, or making jewelry (more about that later).
I’ve been busy while I’m here in Florida doing both. Had to go back to the basics with crochet as I’ve hadn’t “hooked” in a few years. But I think the results are worth the extra time I put in practicing. You be the judge (see below). I’m now making one in cream for my mother-in-law. Hope she likes it!
As far as knitting goes, I had to teach myself to knit right-handed (I’m a leftie). After a bit of practice, here’s the afghan I made, with a crocheted edge. I’m pretty pleased with the end result (see below). I’ve also knitted a multi-colour scarf for my son’s girlfriend for Christmas, as well as a scarf for my daughter.
