One of the things I always tell new knitters is that...
...a crocheter doesn't need to know how to knit, but a knitter needs to know a little something about crocheting. There are places on a knitted piece, around the neck, cuffs, button edge, when a crocheted edging is just what's needed. And a knitter MUST have some crochet hooks in her bag for correcting mistakes and weaving up dropped stitches. I have carried Brittany Hooks in my bag for years. I particularly like them because they're pretty and feel good in my hands. Brittany Hooks are beautifully sculpted from sustainable, harvested birch. With all that in mind, I've selected an assortment of three sizes, "D", "F" and "H" for a range of possibilities, depending upon the size yarn being used. I've sewn an assortment of pretty, three pocket cases in designer fabrics with grosgrain ribbon ties and added them to my Etsy Shop. (You can find them under "Knitting Needle Cases") A perfect set of crochet hooks just for knitters! What could be more fun than fabric that looks like knitting?
I can sew you a case in many of the fabric choices on my site.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
It's turned cool and cloudy here,
so I think I'll just sit and knit this weekend.
