I started crocheting about two years ago. I love to knit but found I could only knit for a limited time span as it caused my hands to ache. I tried bamboo needles and being lighter to hold they seemed to help a bit. I still knit but mainly, what I call, mini knits! Short periods of time that are manageable. I am now ‘hooked on crochet’ and always have lots of projects on the go in various places in my cottage. I have just finished my crocheted ‘In the Pink’ tea cosy for Valentines day. It seems to have taken a long time to complete and I am glad to see it finished……… Here it is sitting on the window sill on a very welcome sunny morning.
