    Matt, I hope things are improving for you and Sally.

    Unfortunately my availability will be very hit-and-miss for the next month or two as well, or I would step up.

    My level of technology is just not up there plus my availability is also hit and miss. For example this Sunday I am at work.

    I shared this picture of a little pair of knitting needles I made a while ago in the chat last night. I think from memory they were 22 inches long.

    I have never made a whole crochet hook but I have repaired quite a few. As I shared in the chat last night too, Jools used to have a dozen or so friends who used to come around for craft sessions once a month. One day one of them turned up with a crochet hook that had broken and was held together with a paddle pop stick and sticky tape and she was struggling with it. I took it out to the shed and replaced the plastic handle with an offcut of hairy oak all turned up on the lathe and a little flat bit for her thumb to register on. She had it back in half an hour and loved it. At the following month's session they all turned up with a broken crochet hook each.
