As for friends to share my love of crochet with ? Well, I would say one of the best things about moving to this part of the world was meeting Lucy...I taught her to crochet and we've never looked back...we have an understanding about crochet that still many people probably find a little peculiar.....we "ooohhh "and "aaargh " at colourful ripples, and grannys..we see potential in every ball of wool we buy ( despite the fact our husbands rarely do !) and we can sit for hours together drinking cups of tea, and crocheting in silence...rarely have I found a friend who is willing to spend an entire weekend away just crocheting !

A gem from etsy I've had my eye on for a while...but could never quite justify buying for myself !
Aren't friends great ? And, as if by magic, I too, had been busily conjuring up some hyperbolic pieces...in order to present her with some crocheted goodness to brighten up her day too..
