I always take my knitting/crochet/spinning out with me. I was a bit self-conscious at first and got a bit annoyed with the snide remarks some people would make but now I'm happy to do it wherever I am. My yarn friends and I love a bit of extreme knitting, so we're often found in silly places with our hooks and needles out. My favourite is crocheting up a tree, it's a lovely feeling to be perched on a branch, doing something constructive and watching the world go by. It's amazing how many people don't look up and don't even realise I'm there :)

I have to admit that it's very rare that I think to myself "now look up into the trees in case there's a woman crocheting up there".

Now that I know better, I'm going to have a serious word with myself.

In the meantime, it's back in the fridge for me - I have a pencil to sharpen.

If I was rambling back from Quinn's Bar and happened to look up up and see there a pixie up a tree crocheting, why I would never again a drop take. And that's a fact :drunken:

I'll let you know when I'm selling and I'd be happy to make a hook from a particular stick. The lathe should be back up and running in a couple of weeks, now the weather is picking up.

Exquisite crochet hooks. As a keen crocheter I am lusting after them! You have also got me searching the internet as I have never heard of a micro-lathe.
