My Great Grandmothers Crocheting Hooks

For my 11 birthday, one of my aunts, my mom's sister, sent me their grandmother's crochet hooks. She said received them after her grandmother had passed away. She does not crochet, so she did not have need for them. They had just been siting in a closet. She knew how much I loved to crochet so she gave them to me as a birthday present. I loved them. It is so neat to have crochet hooks that are so unique and so old.

Some I can tell are very old and have been used a lot. On some I can't read the size on them. Of the hooks I can read the size I have 0's, 5's,11's, 14's, and others.

I have some that where the size should be, there is a hole. I wonder how they use to tell the size of a hook!
I have one crochet hook that I especially like that my mom gave me. It has three hooks hooked together. A three in one crochet hook! I don't think there are many of those any more, it looks very old.

Learning How To Knit

Last school year I took a knitting class at our library. I have made several scarfs including one for my older cousin, one for myself, and a miniature one for my two year old cousin. I am now working on a blanket. Not a huge one, though. I also have a hat I am knitting.

The reason I have not finished it is because my teacher is working at other library's. As far as I know there have not been any more classes.

I am having a lot of fun knitting. I am not sure whether I like crocheting or knitting more. That means you can probably guess I like knitting quite a bit. It is also a nice change and what I have been doing doesn't take much paying attention to, that might be why I like it so much.


It Has Been A Long Time

It has been a long time since I posted. I have been busy crocheting, knitting, playing the piano, school, vacation and more. I hope to start posting again.
