Making Soft Handles for my crochet hooks

I stopped crocheting because it hurts.  I decided I needed softer handles so I bought some foam pencil holders from the dollar store.   They are too big in diameter though, so I rolled one up, sew it along the length tightly and insert the needle through another one.

This is what it looked like when I finished pulling it through.

Next I inserted my crochet hook.  Viola, large comfy grip.

Daisy Lace Top for Willow Yarns

This is my latest design using Willow's fingering weight yarn.  It's easy just lots of stockinette.  The daisy stitch has elongated dropped stitches and there is short rowing to "straighten" the slanted hem.
