I purposely picked out colors that won’t work in my house, so that I’ll be forced to part with the afghan. Of course, one good paint job could take care of that. NO! Must not be tempted…must not be tempted…must not be tempted…
Anyway, I just completed the gauge swatch and discovered, in fine-honored tradition, that I need a hook WAY bigger than the size 5.00 mm (U.S. H8) indicated. I’m going with a 6.50 mm hook (U.S. K10). I also discovered that while I like the colors, I’m not wild about the splittiness (if that’s a word) of the yarn. Because of this, I’m using my Susan Bates Quicksilver hook. I don’t know what it is about the coating on a Quicksilver hook, but it just works miracles on yarn that splits.
