I made it. Will they come?
Son of Diplohookticus Jimbosai. Second biggest hook I've ever made.
See, I've had this really cool piece of very tight grain fir in my shop forever. Must have been a closet rod at some time in the past. But lately I've been eyeing it for crochet hook potential. So a couple days ago I decided to start working on it and see what came of it. And Wall Ah!
So for specs? Its 33mm (1.3 inches) in diameter, and just a little under a foot long (30cm).
Now the question.... who would use such a hook and what could it make? It is fully functional. Might be useful with multiple plys of yarn, or maybe even unspun roving! It'd be fun to see what some clever crochet artist could make with it.
Maybe I'll loan it out... sort of like a library book only we'd call it a library hook?
Tell me what you think.
Oh.. and thanks for dropping by
