I seem to have lost all my crochet hooks in my hotel room, this is odd even for my sort of mess…

I guess I will have to find some time to tidy everything up, fast, I want to start on a blanket.

I think they are lost forever, I went through my room twice. I think I must have accidentally thrown them away. Now, I don’t care for the super pretty case, or the quantity of hooks I accumulated, but I am really upset because among them there was my very first crochet hook, the one my grandma taught me to crochet with, the ones she said I could keep because I would make good use of it. I would pay serious money for having it back.

I want to apologise for the lack of recent posts, but I have been offered an English teaching job in Kurdistan, and I accepted it. I am now in the ancient city of Erbil, and from Tuesday I will be teaching English.

I have brought yarn with me, and I hope to start making things soon, but so far I have been very busy. I hope you will still bare with me, because I plan to get back to crochet as soon as possible.

Great little DIY idea from Make and Takes - Chain Stitch Wrapping Ribbon.

Fantastic idea for all the little scraps of yarn that are too small to make something!

Watermelon coaster.
I really love working on these coasters, everything about them is fun. One of the best things is that they start off looking nothing like what I want them to look like, but along the way they take shape so fast under my eyes to the point that I am surprised when I see them finished!

I love this! I love the apple and kiwi ones, too! You did a great job on all of them! 

You’re the sweetest, thank you! I plan to make sets of them soon

redthreadredemption thanks for the support on all my coasters, especially the pear one - aka the ugliest one!
