- I'm a lover of vintage times and simple elegance of another era. I'm waiting a while for my special little farmhouse. While I'm waiting, I'm making good use of my time creating lovlies with my crochet hook n thread or yarn, and baking and cooking from scratch for my family.

Mother Nature vs Old Man Winter & moving of the hook
Old man winter is very persistant. We are under yet another severe weather advisory today, with a combination punch rain/snow. So my son is off again from school today, and many things are closed and or cancelled.
The silver lining, there is always one is that while the weather may be severe, the duration of these storms and the fluctuations of the temperatures is less.
I've got a new computer, as the old dinosaur while it won't give up the ghost doesn't run, well it runs but you never get to visit anywhere.
On the hook front, I've been moving it but really not producing anything. I did find a pattern for a cute vest I'm trying. I have issues with gauge, and with finding the right yarn for the job. But, I want to try my hand at another piece of clothing, this one calls for #4 yarn which I have plenty of. I don't understand that whole DK thing at all. And trying to find cotton yarn in a store #3, not working.
This is sweet, this is the picture from the website which sells the pattern, and
here is the link
The pattern calls for a one pounder which I had on hand, in a country rose color. I just started it the other day, today is the perfect day for moving of the hook.
