(images are clickable)
Yesssssssssss another hook up for bidses. My precious is up for bidses. (a lame attempt at Gollum-ese)

This one, as the title suggests, is a republican maple. How can a maple hook be conservative you ask? Well because its BUSH maple. haha gotcha.
And what size would a Maple hook be? M of course.
There's a bit of bark left on the handle (you don't see it in the picture, but i promise its there and its purty.
This is a kind of "trigger" hook that's best used by those with the toothbrush or steak knife style grip, and it's a bit wedge shaped in cross section to match the "V" at the crease of your fingers as you grip the hook. Feels really good and is as smooth as silk.
So! Let the bidding begin! Send me your bids at my Yahoo email address, which is:

jimbocrochetwhittler@yahoo.com

(note sometimes this link thing doesn't work... if it doesn't you can simply block and paste the address to your browser)


I'll edit this post to announce bids as they come in so please stay tuned.... and thanks for stopping by.
Jimbo

AND WE'RE OFF!!
Deborah takes an immediate and very strong lead with the first bid of $25!

Oh MY in the very last hour before bidding closes we have another bid of $35!! Wowee
oh and bytheway... i'll close bidding on this hook by oh, say Thursday night. Be sure to come by then or another time close by and catch the next hook up for bids. I'm going to do something different.

That is one bee-you-ti-ful hook Jimbo! Love it.

Oh btw, I forgot to tell you that I am a toothbrush grip. Forgot. Sorry.

I started using one your hooks this weekend on one of my new fun projects. Awesome. Totally killed the numbness I've been suffering from. Nice.
