FIVE MORE AND THE bidding is CLOSED! SEE HIGH BIDDERS BELOW
(IMAGE IS CLICKABLE)
We're BACK...flight was delayed but we're finally here.. back from Portland. Beautiful place! Anyways..here's a group of hooks to ponder and maybe if you like, send in a bid or two. These are all genuine Deadman Crick wood hooks, made from branches of generous trees up on the ranch and looking for caring homes.
Reading from left to right:
Hook 1 is an apple wood H about 7 1/4 inches long.. from the old apple tree that started all this. Very pretty grain.
Hook 2 is also apple wood, and an I but a wee bit shorter..
Hook 3 is a teensy bit bigger than an L and is made of good ole crick Aspen..
Hook 4 is an amazing thing. It bent all by itself in a perfect arch that I think makes it fit the hand all the better. Its a P and made from a Cedar branch which is a bit harder than lumber type cedar, but still warrants gentle crocheting.. i wouldn't suggest you crochet barbed wire with it. Oh and its a whopping 8 1/4 inches long.
Hook 5 is for someone who wants a big hook but a Q is too big and a P is too small. This cedar branch hook is 13mm which is smack between a P and a Q (P is 10mm and Q is 16mm). I kind of like the compromise. Its also about 8 1/4 inches long. The advantage of the cedar hooks is their lightness... super light.
Please send bids to me at
