Swatched & Ready to go...



I am all swatched and ready to go for the 29th June, the 1st clue in the PInk Lemon Twist Mystery Stole 3. It's taken me all week to remember to look through mum's crochet hooks to see if there was one small enough, success!!!

This is a Imperial UK size 5 which in metric terms equates to 0.75mm. I'm sort of glad I found one in mum's stash as this belonged to my maternal Grandmother whom I never knew as she died long before I was born. She was a beautiful crocheter and did very fine yarns there's even an old size 6.5 hook which is so fine you can hardley see the hook... so although I'm noy crocheting I can't help thinking that she would be pleased that I'm using her hook for htis lace shawl....

The details.....
Yarn: Zephyr Lace Yarn in white hand-dyed shades of dusky apricot by me
Needles: 3.5mm Addi Lace needles
Beads: Size 8 Toho seed beads TCR166: Gold lined Rainbow crystal from e-beads.co.uk

That is just even more delicious knitted up ! Love the colours and the beads look as if they were made for your hand-dyed yarn. I think your stole will look wonderful.
