Thanks duckling10, I've rethought the shawls and it maybe a runner! I've just started buying Knitpro circs and I'm a convert on the 4mm or bigger, I broke the 3.25 one I got so not impressed with the smaller sizes! Now I just have to go through the stash and see if I've anything suitable otherwise it'll be a trip to town!!!

Aaargh! I was crocheting some little cardigans and after I finished the first, one of my fingers was feeling irritated and I dealt with it by moving my finger closer to the hook. Then I continued on and did two more cardigans. I just looked at the three of them together last night and was left nearly in tears. Moving my finger placement somehow completely and utterly changed the size of my stitches and now I have one big cardigan and two tiny ones. Hopefully, what I have is two newborn cardigans and a 3-6 month sized one. But I fear I have one newborn cardi and two only fit for dolls.

If they're very tiny, they might suit preemies and you could maybe donate to your local hospital?

ln an amazing coincidence one of the babies I was making them for was just born quite a bit ahead of schedule and will, I'm sure, be in need of a teeny cardi.
