The wrong hook!

I’ve been away since I posted the last entry here, not far, just about 100 miles away from home. I met with my stitching group, it’s only the second time I’ve managed to attend this year – next year will hopefully not be so catastrophic and I’ll be able to see them every couple of months or so. I decided that instead of stitching, as I had nothing really prepared, I would start another c2c blanket. Here’s the progress

This one is different in as much as it will all be in one colour. Once again I’ve chosen a Stylecraft Special DK – this time it’s Peony.  The yarn is actually a mix of two colours which gives a rich appearance – not dissimilar to chenille from a distance. However, it is very loosely twisted, and that gave me a problem.

I didn’t take my usual hook with me in case I lost it! I took a spare which I hadn’t used before. It was so tedious! The hook itself was bulky and not at all smooth to work with. I went out an bought another – but that too wasn’t as I had hoped. I did manage to progress a little though, towards my aim of one ball during my stay away. I managed it – just! As a point of reference I managed 36 rows of blocks with the first ball. As you can see I’ve marked the row – and I’lll start the next ball tonight. I think progress with this will be slow as I have other plans too ( you heard about those last time) but this is a Christmas present, so I should manage it in time!
