I went on a search for a crochet hook this weekend, after three car booties and three charity shops, it seems they are not that easy to find, second hand anyway. One of the lovely old ladies in one of my local charity shops sweetly offered hers. After I protested I surely couldn't have hers, she said quite adamantly "come back next week". :)
I just can't wait to get started. I hope I get the stitches worked out quickly so I can try my hand at some tutorials I've spotted on Yvestown, and the Royal Sisters.
I didn't come back empty handed from my 'rummagings', oh no! I found some old knitting needles. I can't knit but couldn't resist them. I tried... or rather my grandma tried teaching me when I was about 10, but she gave up on me! That tells me one of two things, either my grandma was as impatient as me, or I was unteachable.
I also found some cotton yarn in preparation, some old thread, some frames (collecting them to make a little art wall), fabric, plate, jug... It's amazing how much you can buy with £10!

I HAVE HOOKS!!! not one but three!
Adrian's lovely mum (yes I have a lovely 'mum-in-law') sent them in the post. What a gem! :D
