Yeay! I am back from my orchestra tour, and I did some major shopping!
I found these bone crochet hooks in an antique shop; I can't wait to try them out...however, I have a suspicion they are for lace...which I am still afraid of trying...
There was this really fantastic yarn store called Yarns On First, where I picked up some Noro Silk Garden Light and some Manos del Uruguay.
I also got some Lana Grossa Soffice to make a chemo hat for my cousin. I finished it up on the bus.
I also made a crochetted baby hat that looks like a pumpkin, but I gave it to the mom before I took a pic. Pattern here.
I get nervous on flights, but find if I'm preoccupied concentrating on something, it helps. Here is a crochetted hat make with one skein of Noro Silk Garden that took me less than 2 hours to make. Another note on flights; I never had problems taking bamboo circulars before, but since they've been more strict at screenings, I didn't risk taking them. Instead, I took a set of cheap-o plastic Red Heart crochet hooks, and no one bothered me.
