My new afghan hooks arrived early! I couldn't wait to find the J hook and try it out! The hooks were only marked with the mm size so I had to look up which hook was which on this a conversion chart!
Which clearly showed me which hook to try with my yarn. The hook is a LOT bigger than the G hook I was trying to use with worsted weight yarn-no wonder it felt like armor!
I had bought this yarn at Michael's
when I was given a gift card right after Christmas.
It would be perfect for this block a month project.
I worked a bit last night and it is so much easier to crochet with acrylic yarn instead of cotton! Having the right hook was also critical. I will work on this throughout the day today.
Yesterday, when another friend stopped by, we brought the plants out of the garage, put them back into their right places and then watered them all. I also used the blower to get all of the leaves out of the garage. I am going to enjoy sitting outside in the sunshine while working on this block . Tomorrow another new block will be released so I want to be ready.
I will be listening to the birds chirp! Very restorative!
