What's red and sparkly?

My new crochet project with the metal hook kindly sent by Marina.

Matching sparkly hook - Perfect

It's currently living in the go everywhere bag and is growing quickly.

Another vest top like the green one I made last week - this time in a Red polyester chenille yarn with sparkles of lurex.

The metal hook is making things a whole lot easier - I think I would have still been trying to do row one with the plastic one and this yarn - they were not playing nice together at all.

Hope your week is bright and sparkly.

It looks really slippery. I get scared of slippery!

Plastic hooks never worked well with me either they grab the wool instea of letting it glide through,give me a metal one any day.Don't forget photo's when it's finished :) Barb.

Looks intriguing! I use metal hooks all the time for crochet.

Pretty colour!

I'd never thought about the difficulties plastic would throw into the mix (since I dont crochet at all )

I guess it's like having a favourite pair of scissors or liking a particular sewing machine foot.

Carry on crocheting.

You are so co-ordinated. I like metal crochet hooks and knitting needles better than the plastic, they feel different in your hand. Glad it is making itself useful.
Lovely red yarn.
