I am currently joining Melody’s-Makings Mini Create-A-Long.  A short two week mystery crochet and knit along.

There is a Ravelry group where tips and help are posted along with people’s pictures of their works in progress.

For all my CAL/KAL’s this year, I am hoping to use only stash yarn.

For this project (which called for bulky #5 yarn), I am using Lion Brand Tweed Stripes and a ChiaoGoo 6mm bamboo hook.  Our local Ocean State Job Lot has had a lot of Lion Brand yarn in stock and I built up my stash with many colors of Tweed Stripes and Jiffy.


Here is my project, clues one and two completed:



(Spoiler Alert)


I think its safe to say this is going to be a hat!

If I like it, I’ll make one for my daughter too.  If it is not my style, it will be up for grabs or donated to Winter Warmers via my crochet group-Fishnet Crocheters.

I am currently working on a few things and I have to say, I quite love when I return to the project using my Furls Odyssey hook. I think I am becoming spoiled with these hooks (I know what I’ll be asking for my birthday!).

Happy Crocheting!

    I do feel that way. I really notice a difference when I go back and forth between the Furls and the bamboo or metal hooks. The Furls Odyssey is a heavier hook, but the weight is nicely distributed and feels good in my hand. I like that they are not crazy expensive like the wood ones, just sort of expensive (reasonable to ask for as a gift or something).
