Pencil or Knife ?
Here's a picture of me crocheting .
As I was adding another stripe to my GSB it struck me that I don't really know what others look like when they crochet. Do I hold my yarn and hook like everyone else ?
I have been crocheting since I was a child so I can't actually remember being taught .
I've noticed that the only other person I see crocheting these days,my lovely sister in law, holds her hook like this..........
So a quick Internet search told me I hold my hook like a knife ( or overhand) and my SIL uses the pencil grip.
Some of my English crochet books don't even mention the knife grip,so I wonder which is most popular ? Which do you like ?
I've tried the pencil grip but it makes my wrist ache.
My Granny Stripe has progressed quite a bit this week,after a lull during the hot weather of July.
Yes it's actually longer the it is wide ,at last,but not a lot.......
55 inches long ,which is 62 stripes........
I think another 10 stripes will be enough .Then I'll be onto the edging ,yay.
I love the way this project is turning out ,hope you're not fed up with seeing it!
I'd love to know which hook hold all you crocheters out there use, so please leave me a comment
