Playing hooky this christmas

 I am still around, haven't quite disappeared under the pile of board games and sweet wrappers! I am slowly putting together squares for a blanket. This is a great project for days like these, easy to pick up, easy to put down. I have been making these squares throughout the year. I never seem to have much time but I do seem to have odd pockets and I have been trying to use them by crocheting a square here and there.
 Long list of places, sports days, ferry terminals, motorway journeys, waiting rooms.
One square at a time.
 Its getting there slowly but whats that you say?
....yes, it is an attractive wooden hook, how kind of you to notice it.
....yes it was a little Christmas gift, so kind of you to ask.
....yes I do know where you could get one as well!
Its made by a company called Brittany Needles based in the US. You can buy them from here in the UK.
It won't make the crochet faster or neater but it is a lovely little object to twirl in your hands.
It could almost pass as a scarf pin.

I love the color combinations. I'm not so great with color...that's why I work in black and white!

Very neat tool. It has the look that makes you just want to hold it and use it.
