Decided that the fiddly pink blanket I am making For K-k-katie , using the sarah london Wool Eater pattern in six shades of pink, was going to kill my fingers. So I broke out the Sugru and made custom thumb rests in my 4mm and 4.5mm hooks. Visited my mum and dad, who live in an award winning village in Fife, and went to look at the beach. It was high tide, and it … Continue reading
