Hooking Small...........

I'm in a hooking phase where I just want to hook small quick projects.  I've come off the end of two good sized rugs, and I'm just plain tired of something long and drawn out.  I'm sure some of you know exactly what I mean.  I've been playing with hooking little bags.  I like to scale way down in the spring and summer.  I usually have a larger bag that I work out of, but when I'm ready to head out the door for coffee with friends, a movie, or dinner out with hubby..... I like to go small and simple.


It's my little "posy pouch" perfect for a bit of cash, cards, lipstick, and keys.  Yes, sometimes the phone needs to be left behind.  And I feel better for it!


Easy back closure with vintage pearl button.


A nice long leather strap so it can be draped over my head and across my shoulder.  Don't have to think about "where's my purse?"

I've finished my first "Easter Candy Sock".


It's been a joy watching the candy colored yarn evolve into vibrant stripes as I hook.  These will be fun early spring sockies to wear!

Hopes to you for a joyful and creative weekend!

Love the posy pouch!! And I agree about leaving the phone behind. The socks are wonderful! I also love seeing the pattern emerge. It's half the fun!
