TWO MAJOR EVENTS TODAY IN JIMBOLANDAnd the EGG HOOK WINNER IS>>>>

(see the end of this post for the BIG WINNER of the NATCROMO EGG HOOK DRAWING!!)



AT LAST, FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER IN THE KNOWN UNIVERSE, BEHOLD

THE JIMBOMATICtm

Yes folks you are witness to the first in the Universe hook that's going to shake the crochet world!!!

What, you ask, will this hook do??

Well let me tell you the possibilities are endless!

Do you see that little wire leading out the back of the hook?? Well that wire has a USB port fitting on the end... letting you connect your JIMBOMATICtm to your computer and the World Wide INTERNET!!

Are you starting to see the possibilities?

Lets say you're a crochet designer. You simply plug your JIMBOMATICtm hook into your computer, load the software and start crocheting! Your computer will automatically produce a DEAD ON pattern that is instantaneously registered, then published on the internet... customers are automatically connected through paypal to your bank account.

Lets say you're a crochetier who fell in love with the design that was made by the designer above. You simply plug your JIMBOMATICtm into your USB port, search the internet for the pattern, click paypal when you find your pattern, and you'll be guided step by step in making the design.. the computer won't let you skip stitches or loose count. A little sub routine at the beginning will even help you set your gauge!!


Lets say you're want to join friends in a "crochet along" where your group is making a particular complicated Afghan. Your JIMBOMATICtm hooks will automatically interact so each member will make a perfectly fitting square!

Lets say you're into tapestry crochet... the JIMBOMATICtm optional FREESTYLE software will let you download your original artwork and will automatically show you a list of the colors, length and weight of yarn to use, along with a stitch by stitch instructions that will guide you to a perfect crochet reproduction!


This little hook will open a whole new world of crochet, for beginners through seasoned professionals, but just one more thing this AMAZING HOOK has done...

It has April Fooled you!!!!!!

HAHAHAHA

GOTCHA!!

you gotta admit such a thing would be pretty cool, eh?

Hi Jimbo - nice to meet you. Saw you on Ravelry's post. I have a question for you on patents since my hubby the craftsman made something for me that just isn't part of the crochet world yet for graphing (I designed it, he made it) - and he and I thought that it would be a good thing to patent and he could make them as long as he is well (he has cancer). But how to patent? Seems like a long shot - but heck, who knows! Everyone starts somewhere!

Got relatives up in your neck of the woods! Great place!

Alice said...

Okay, it's tomorrow already... and some of us are being driven crazy with the wait! (it's a short trip, tho') What's the big news... just give us a hint, c'mon!

Now that was a good one, have to give it to you who would of even dreamed of something like that good job Happy aprils fools day all

Maria said...

I really want one! Can it (in it's future incarnations) be made to make a list of all of the supplies that I need for my projects, crosschecked by what is already in my stash, and remind me to put it in my purse with my coupons? That would be tres helpful :)

Fantabulous post :)

Carla said...

Now if you will sell it as a set with knitting needles, too — I'm in!

LOL, too cute!

Jan Pope said...

The thing about blue sky ideas is that, sometimes that might be possible. The Jimbomatic might actually be possible. A couple of motion sensors in the hook to detect vertical and horizontal motion, with a USB and/or serial port to the computer. The software would have to "learn" how a person crochets. Maybe something along the lines of crochet single crochet for 3 minutes during a "learn" phase in the software.

Then it could write the pattern, but alas, it can't unravel it too.

Blue skying right along with you.

Hi Jim, Just safely returned from Paradise Fiber -WOW! Now I need your Jimbomatic hook to make fabulous creations. Saw a scarf in a museum this summer and took a photo. So you think I can download the photo onto the Jumbomatic software and hook?
LOL and love ya!

that is a wonderful addition to your continuing imagination. My grandddaughter thinks a hook like that would be awesome, when she saw your post she had to call and tell me to look quick. Thank you for the sile
