I seemed to have developed an obsession with my buttons……Here is another tin of the pearly little beauties.

About hookandply

I am a painter and maker. I love experimenting with colour and textures and I find wools and fabrics irresistable. I was taught to knit by my mother and have always felt comfortable with all things knitting but about two years ago I started to learn to crochet and got hooked. I have various projects scattered around the house so that I can pick up a project wherever I am. If I go out I take some trusty crochet with me to do when I am enjoying a break in a cafe. It is a good starting point for a conversation. Has anyone else found this? My most resent passion is Lindy Hop and the 1940's but that is another story.
