Crocheting along…

Hey there,

This weekend was pretty chilled. Lots of sleep (mmm sleeeep…zzz). Oops sorry about that.
I also went to the Old Petrie Village markets for Sunday brekky (just between you and me, it wasn’t a bowls club brekky, that’s for sure).

I did however do something that I’ve been meaning to do for ages. I subscribe to Craftzine and my Google Reader account has been backing up for ages with its posts. So I sorted through over 100 posts over the weekend. So I kinda feel like I’ve accomplished something in that regard.

Oh! And I also worked on this old thing…

While working I found my wrists were getting tired. So I started holding the needle differently. I started holding the needle in the under-the-needle position. It was better for my wrist, but I found that because I’m using a 4mm hook it’s a little difficult to hold.

I’ve found a few tutorials on how to make crochet hook grips

And I’ve found some pencil grips here

So I think I might go the way of blue tack and pencil grips first to see how that goes.

What have you been up to these days?

Until next time, have a great week and do something you love!
