Hook and needles

Thanks for all the suggestions and offers of spare parts, I checked out Specsavers on my way past but they were seeing appointments only so I've posted off the broken aid.

I knitted this capelet some time ago but I've only just got round to attaching the button. It keeps my neck nice and warm.


 I've started a granny shawl now.


It's a half granny square that is turned at the end of each row. The pattern can be found on The Patchwork Heart blog. I'm not using exactly the same colours as I'm using yarn from my stash.

That button is PERFECT. I've never seen anything like it. I've always wanted to knit or crochet either one. I'm left handed and no one could ever teach me because I am too stupid to reverse what they are doing with my own hands.

Hello, I've not commented for a while but still been reading your posts. My home life has changed and I've more time now to visit blogs. The capelet is really lovely! Please can you tell me where to find the pattern, I'd love to knit one.

Your Woolies look lovely and cosy, a good time to be making a nice thick shawl, before the cold really sets in, a nice big comfy shawl is just the thing to snuggle in.
With all your "messing about on boats"😂😂 it might be nice to have a few Cowls, neck warmers that don't fall off or flap about when you are busy.
I make mine a bit snug around my neck so I can pull them up for a hat, to keep my ears warm or my hair from flying about. It's easy to knit one on circular needles or dpns...really just a beanie with no crown.Keep warm.
