Windy, cold, but beautiful.a yarn shop in the small fishing town that we're holidaying in and they just happened to have the right colours! It was meant to be. :)
I'm on the hunt for some new hooks too. These are all of the 4.0mm hooks I have, which is the size I use most of the time. The yarn store here has some Knitpro soft touch hooks, so I might try one of those. I know a lot of fellow crocheters love the clover ones too, but I'm worried they'll be too chunky for me. I'm used to using the top aluminium style. Shelley from Spincushions did a mammoth comparison of crochet hooks a while back and she recommended the Knitpro waves. You can check out her blog here. Anyhoo, I'll update when I've given it a go.
