A Few Things About Me

  • Favorite hook type
    Plastic
  1. Thanks, I am heading over right now. I really love working with the double end hooks and tunisian crochet. These tiny hooks really threw me because my thread was too big to work comfortably. I thought thread would work better. I picked it up because my husband always complains about the holes in granny squares, even the solid granny. I thought I would do something heavier for him. But I love it now.
  2. Is it possible to do thread crochet with double end hooks? If so, are patterns available? I have a tiny 4mm double end crochet hook and don't know what to do with it. (It was given to me by a frustrated beginner). I love using them, but I have never used one this small. Thank you for any suggestions.
  3. Hello all! Let me introduce myself. I have been crocheting for 20 years. My mother and grandmother knitted, but I didn't like using the 2 needles. I taught myself and loved it. But of course with husband in military, kids, moving everywhere I never had enough time. Now that everyone is grown and we are settled, I have started again. I have learned tunisian crochet and love it. I have learned how to use the cro hook and love it. I want to learn how to do thread crochet. It was the only thing my grandmother crocheted and it was beautiful. I need help and thought I would come here for tips and tricks and to look at everyone's beautiful work. It will inspire me to keep at it and really learn this thread crochet. Right now, I seem to be a yarn addict. I see some lovely yarn and I have to have it. I'm not sure what I will do with it, but at least I have it. I want to learn how to spin my own yarn, but thats for later. I have also taught myself to knit and even though I'm very slow right now and I don't think it will replace crochet for me, it is very soothing and I think I like it.
