Yarn Booty

Untitled

It's been far too long since I've played with yarn and hooks! I just returned from a visit to California with some scrumptious yarns and a hook from Daiso Japan (a Japanese dollar store)! 

If you're familiar with US hook sizes, you know there is a C (2.75 mm) hook and a D (3.25 mm) hook... But what of the 3.0 mm hook? (I believe a 00 in steel hooks is a 3.0 mm, but mine is super old and worn, so I'm not sure how accurate it is.) So I was pretty excited (I know, it's the little things) to find a 3.0 mm with a nice comfy handle! I'm not sure if/when or for what I'm going to use it for, but it's nice to have one!

Anyways, stay tuned as I'm going to start playing with some of that yarn soon!

What are you guys playing with?

    1. Thanks Ellen! I was in the East Bay! The hand-dyed yarns were actually given to me as gifts while I was there, but they were from a yarn shop in Bainbridge Island, Washington called Churchmouse Yarns & Teas. The un-dyed yarn skein in the top of the photo I actually I found in Star Market in Berkeley (from a local farm). I wasn't expecting to find yarn among food - what a fun find!
      Hope you're having a lovely weekend!

  4. Thanks, Kate! Oh yes! I was on Bainbridge Island last October for a nearby ukulele festival and stopped at Churchmouse Yarns. It's a lovely shop, if you ever get the chance to visit. There's also an epic ice-cream place just down the block!
