  2. Hi David,
    Thanks for another great start to a new season. I checked out Henry and am in awe. I have not done much more than start the sleeve of a Philosophers wool sweater, and that was a few years ago. It is not easy for me to spend time knitting something that will be hard to wear here in Tucson, AZ. Even now, in early November, we are still in the high to mid 80’s. But you have inspired me to try it again, perhaps using lighter weight yarn or a wool and cotton blend.
    I am on the lookout for a cro-hook, too. Take care, Kathy C.
