Standard

Well, I didn’t plan to write two blog posts in one day, but when I went outside to the mailbox today I found a parcel waiting for me. Whoop Whoop!

20160517_121439Yup, the package from Denise arrived. I ordered on the weekend, they despatched on the Monday and it only took 8 days to get here from the US.

I was surprised by how tiny the crochet hook set looked. You don’t get a sense of scale from the photos on their site. It is certainly travel-friendly. At first glance, the hooks look a bit like cheap plastic, but actually they are a strong resin and are very smooth.

Just behind the hooks are two tiny compartments which hold four cables and some stoppers and a joining piece. The cables are quite stiff which is something that some people probably don’t like about Denise products.

I also ordered this book because there is  so much I don’t know about Tunisian crochet.

This is my first test swatch with these hooks and some worsted weight acrylic.  A little Tunisian and a few dcs to try things out for size.

The hooks and cables felt fine, though the longer cables would probably benefit from being dipped in warm water to straighten them out before use. I wondered how I would like the tips, as 99% of my hook collection  are tapered rather than inline, but they seem ok.

Time and practice will tell!
