Crochet hooks & Flower Loom
Just arrived !!!!

I bought a set of hooks for my buddy, 
She always needs to use the hook size that I am using, so I decided she should have her own set .

In addition to the hooks …

As she loves to make flowers with the Circular Loom and the one she has is a little bit too big, 
I bought her a Flower Loom with several sizes.

She loves the present

Blue sky top

A crochet top for my buddy.
We did not have a clear idea of what pattern or stitch we would like to use.

We improvised with different patterns and finally made a shells stitch that looks very cute and fits beautifully around his neck, 

Then we continued the front with a 'V' stitch and we like the combination!!!

We will update the post when is finished..... 
very soon I expect :-)
