I took some much needed leave and went up to the north of South Africa to visit my sister, and we spent most of our time doing sewing, machine embroidery, and crocheting! When last did you do some crochet work? I can't even remember, but it was great to pick it up again. We both sat crocheting the same style jacket, and I made mine from about 120g of pink variegated wool with a fine silver thread in it. I used an enormous crochet hook (size 10) and crocheted double trebles, so the end result is this gorgeous 'holy' jacket. It was so easy and quick to work up, that we went and bought more wool to make a second one up in a different colour! It actually looks much better on my body than in this flat photo, but you get the general idea.
