Sheep from Inside Crochet Issue 88



  1. Thank you for the yarn update and for showing your beautiful creations! I love your shawl and the darling sheep. I am waiting to put in my order at Deramores until April 7th when the new colors will be available! Thank you also for telling us about the other Stylecraft products.
    Could you recommend some cushioned crochet hooks? I have the old aluminum ones and would like to update as they do bother my fingers at times but I want to be careful and not get ones that are too short in the shaft etc. There are so many out there now. What do you use? Thank you for any information you can offer me.

    1. Hi Sam,
      So glad you liked the video - the yarns are all lovely, aren't they?!
      I've just moved on from my old aluminium hook (although I do you like them for some projects) and I'm currently using Knit Pro crochet hooks which are perfect for knife-hold crocheters like me, but I know friends who use the Addi swing hooks (better for pen-holds) and love those too. Perhaps worth while visiting a yarn store and trying some out?
