Miss Kitty $30
Hook A, is a Deadman Crick Maple H that's oh about 7 inches long. This hook has a slightly different color in a band that you don't really notice without looking. Don't have the slightest idea how it got there, but there it is right in the middle of the hook. Maybe you can spot it if you enlarge the photo (by clicking on the image)
Hook B is the other non Deadman Crick wood hook. Its a gorgeous Apricot wood hook that has just amazingly figured grain. Its an L ont he Bates gauge and is about 7 1/2 inches long.
Hook C as you already guessed, is not made of Deadman Crick wood. Its wood from across the crick, over in Africa.... African Padauk. Padauk is ordinarly all red, but this stick has some blond color for an amazing contrast. The hook's an I sizewise and is about 7 3/4 inches long.
Hook D is good ole Deadman crick Hazle Nut and it has some really interesting spalting along the handle. Its has a bit more universal grip that might appeal a bit more to folks who use the pencil grip style. Its a teensy bit bigger than an L, and is about 7 1/2 inches long.
Hook E (skipping over the nostepindes) is a little egg hook. This little guy is a G, about 4 1/4 inches long, and is made of good ole Deadman Crick Aspen. This would be a really nice grip for someone with little, sore crochet hands.
Hook F is a small hook made from the old apple tree up on the crick. It's an H and is only 5 3/4 inches long. Amazingly good fit though, especially for a small handed, toothbrush style grip.
The nostes? The one on the left is made of Deadman Crick Cedar and oh its just light as a feather. You gon't get someting for nothing though, and the lightness is a trade off for hardness. So while this noste is ultra light, its also soft and can be dented.
The other noste is harder but a bit heavier. Its made of Deadman Crick Aspen. Interesting and unusual grain figure and color from tan to blond.
Both nostes are about 9 1/2 inches long.
By the way.... if you don't know what a noste is...look through the archives here. You'll find that they are very useful tools for making center pull balls of yarn.
