My creative space today is quite yarny. I'm working on the collar of the child's woollen cardigan I'm knitting, and when it's just too hot for that, I'm crocheting a little person's cotton summer cardigan using Jo Sharp's Soho Summer in a lovely deep purple.
I'm on to take 3 with the crochet - the pattern called for a 6.5mm hook, but when I tried that it was WAAAAY too big. I changed to a 5.5mm hook which I already had - also too big, so I took myself off to Sunspun and bought a 5 and 4.5mm Soft Touch hook (any excuse, really, but this one was a good one!). The 5mm seems to be working just fine.
So the moral of the story? You can't have too many crochet hooks, and patterns (especially free ones) don't necessarily give helpful hook size advice!!
