WIP Wednesday: Ravenclaw Continues!

Just one project in progress this Wednesday evening. But that’s because I’m whipping through small projects too. That market bag from last week? Wait until you see it! I’m in love with it. I’m going to be browsing patterns tonight for my next gift inspiration and then get to work on that. But for right now, this very minute, the Ravenclaw Prisoner of Azkaban scarf is the only thing hooking. And yes, I totally love it. The navy color is gorgeous. And the yarn is smooshy soft although a bit splitty. I need better hooks to avoid the splitting. I just feel like these don’t clutch the yarn right. Granted, they’re my first set and standard issue Michael’s variety but still. Any recommendations on good grippy non-splitty hooks?Please excuse the phone photography. I was desperate to get something up today.

  1. Aww, a Ravenclaw scarf. SO awesome!

    Can’t wait to see the market bag!

    I love my Susan Bates set. I originally used Boye, but they didn’t grip the yarn as well as I hoped, so I bought the Bates ones. I’ll never go back! You can get a set for about $11 at Michaels/Joann’s so they won’t break the bank. I’ve also heard great things about the Clover hooks.
