The Dance That Almost Did Not Happen, part 2

The story starts here.

Unfortunately the Dance Under the Stars was a colour combo that did not agree with me or him at all. I contacted the vendor once again who apologised that they were out of stock with all the kits, returned my money, and told me to keep the kit I got as a gift. I decided to make it into a “practice blanket”, and make another one in a different colour scheme later.

I now had the yarn. But, I realised I will be needing different-sized hooks. My collection of crochet hooks is very eclectic: there are plastic ones that were part of a kit I got when I was in pre-school. There are metallic ones that were probably used by my grandmas. There are a couple of bamboo ones, that I have bought to use on board of airplanes. Basically, a proper mess. πŸ™‚

I decided to treat myself to a set of good quality hooks, and picked out 7 Clover Amour needles from the website of a small vendor. She is a great crafter herself, and I am all for supporting small businesses. But somehow we ended up in the same limbo as with the yarn: messages disappearing into a black hole, the order arriving late, and some of the hooks even later.

My adorable new Clover hooks! The whole mess was totally worth it!

But now I have the yarn, I have the hooks, and 10 weeks of catching up to do.

At least the swatch was quick and easy. πŸ˜‰
