Ok on to a much more pleasant topic.

Here's just one hook up for bids, but its a dilly!
This hook is made from a wood I just discovered. Its genuine Deadman Crick, and from what i'm pretty sure is a Chokecherry bush. Chokecherry bushes grow up by the crick and the native ruffed grouse like to roost in the bushes and eat the fruit. The little berries are very bitter..that's why they call it Chokecherry. But as you can see, the wood is just knock out beautiful. I could show you a hunnert different pictures and there'd still be things in that amazing grain that the photos would miss.
Its just fascinating to look at. But WAIT there's more! (always wanted to say that) This hook is also a very functional, smmoooooooth and durable.
Size? Its an H

So lets see your bids!
PLEASE NOTE THE CLOSING DATE IS CHANGED TO THIS THURSDAY ON ACCOUNTA I JUST FOUND OUT WE GET TO GO TO THE CRICK ON FRIDAY!! WAHOO!!

Send them to me at

Thanks!!
Jimbo

Oh yea, well Yahoo best NOT block me, do they know the danger of a Crocheter attempting to get her hands on a Jimbo hook? Ha, I think NOT.....Yahoo has seen no wrath such as that..
as usual Jimbo that hook is outstanding!

I love the grain in this one...but I do need to restrain myself...even though I really wanted it.

Wow! This hook is gorgeous, I love the grain on it. So sorry I missed this one, I hope you do another soon. I'm sitting at my computer working on my squares for Crochetville's Travelling Hook II with Sonny's hook and thought I'd pop over here to see what was cookin'. I think I'll need a Jimbo hook of my own after using this one! I have one and a half squares done!
