On My Hook...

've been an avid 'hooker' for over a year now, self taught, my scope of patterns hasn't really gone beyond hats, wristwarmers or slippers for the kids, until now!!! spured on by the interesting patterns published on the website http://www.ravelry.com/ (a fab community for knitting and crochet patterns) I am currently in the throws of my first attempt at a cardigan, so far it's proving far too easy, made in one piece from neck downwards, the lacy stitch is interesting and quick to make up.

I'm using a 50% wool mix yarn by King Cole, purchased from our local craft shop, which I am pleased to see is stocking a larger and more interesting range of wool now, another couple of inches on the length, sleeves and a front band and it'll be finished, watch this space...
