After actually stewing on this decision for hours, I've come down to just one of all the really great entries. Improbable? Well it blasted my intergalactic funnybone.
The chosen caption is.....
I drink two Pan Galactic Gargle Blasters, hit the Infinite Improbability Drive and this is what happens?

Would you like to own this hook?
Need to know more? Ok, its made of White Oak, salvaged slats from our old patio benches. Actually you see the hook resting on two of the old slats. Amazing what was hiding under that weathered surface, eh?
Size: H (5mm )
Length: 7 1/8" (18.1 cm)
I've been working day and night on the front porch of our house here in Spokane, and haven't had time to do much hook making. But when I took all the slats off the benches and replaced them with pine, I just couldn't resist seeing if the old slats really wanted to become hooks. At least one did. You see it here.
So how do we give this hook away? Lets have a Photo Caption Contest! I'll post a picture and you provide a caption. (below) The funniest caption will win the hook. How's that? I "borrowed" this idea from my very favorite Irish Fiber Sculptor, Inga Hamilton (look up http://www.rockpoolcandy.typepad.com/).
So you can enter by posting your caption in the remarks section here, or if that doesn't work, you can email your caption to me at:
For your photo captioning:
For those who might not know, this is a picture of Dippy (Diplohookticus Jimbosai)and he's up to antics of some kind. Dippy is the world's biggest crochet hook, and he's going to be performing at a place and time soon to be named, billed second to the famous INGA. More to come as information becomes available.
So.... Lets run this contest till June 16... that'll give you plenty time to think up a good caption.
Thanks for your patience! I'm hoping to be finishing up more hooks soon... but the porch calls....
