It has been lovely reacquainting myself with the hook and Haiku was the perfect project to ease back in to crochet. Mindless repetition which became mediative.

I ordered the pattern from Quince & Co, along with two balls of tern. Calico & Ivy stock a gorgeous brushed suri alpaca from frog tree yarns, it is so wonderfully soft that I ended up using it, held double with tern.

The result is wonderfully soft and drapey.

I gifted this number to a wonderful lady I have had the pleasure of working with over the last twelve months. I am very sad to say that little Calico & Ivy (Balmain) will be closing its doors this Saturday *sob*.
