I could have stayed inside and had my hot cup of coffee. I could have surfed the web, or read the newspapers. I could have done something constructive, like dust or tidy something. I could have, but I didn't. I went outside, in the cold and wind and took some pictures, because the sun was up and it was too pretty to stay inside. My tiny hands are frozen, my nose is cold and red
and I can't feel my feet...wearing slippers should be a no-no....
For those of you not interested in hook work
this is boring!
But if you do any hooking this may help.
What I find annoying is the messy area where the last stitch is made
especially when joining a new colour.
If you cut the yarn off and thread a needle,
the last stitch is almost invisible
and the join is much neater.
A lot of you probably
already know this
but there may be someone who doesn't!
I took some photos to show the process.

The other thing is if you aren't making a garment,
using a smaller hook than recommended
makes the work neater too.
Going down one or even two sizes
makes the item a little tighter
and that looks a little
Just my humble opinion!!
