New year


Hello folks,

First of all I would love to wish all my new and future followers a happy and prosperous New Year. Hope you can all find the courage and time to fulfil your dreams.

With the start of the New Year I would like to make a commitment. I commit to posting once a week. New posts will usually appear on Sunday (hopefully I will not have a lot of slips with this).

Posts will all relate to my crochet life in one way or another. As my blog will grow I would love to work with other bloggers to increase my crochet business circle.

Once again happy New Year to all of you! As for my New Years wish, I wish you could share my blog with those who might find interest I it.

With Love, Dorota



Hello everyone,

I would like to talk about the crochet hooks I use. Before Christmas I had few plastic hooks that I totally hated as the yarn didn’t slide good enough on the hook. And sometimes it was very difficult to complete a stitch using the plastic hook.

I also have a set of 20 aluminium hooks that I have ordered from eBay. I love working with aluminium hooks however they lack any kind of handle and my hand can get very tired when working with a smaller size hook.

Since Christmas I am very proud owner of knit pro waves hooks, I got a set of 19 different sizes. They are also aluminium but they have very comfortable handle that makes using them a big pleasure.


And this is how my set looks. The sizes range from 2mm to 12mm.

I would love to hear what hooks do you all use and what are your opinions on knit pro waves.

You can see the whole range of knit pro supplies on http://www.knitpro.eu/Materialwise-Details.asp?id=25&mcid=2

With Love, Dorota
