BE MY VALENTINE CONTEST and PEROBA ROSA AUCTION
(PLEASE click on the image to enlarge the photo!)
Its growing near Valentine's Day and another day to show appreciation to visitors to my blog. SO.... I made a VALENTINE hook and I'm giving it away! Its, of course, made of red HEART wood and it an H (5mm) for HEART, which is pretty much a Valentine theme, wouldn't you say. Oh and it has a sparkly heart at the top (that's removable for crocheting).
Would YOU like this Jimbo Valentine Hook?? Hmmmm? Well if you do, all's you need do is enter the contest. Simply leave a comment here in my blog telling me you'd like to enter, or email me at
I'll do a random drawing from the entries of Sweeties on Valentine's day.
You see the other hook?? Its up for auction, ending also on Valentine's day 10pm Pacific Time. Peroba Rosa is a Rosewood, and this particular piece is one that I cut from a small board, selected for its phenomenal figure and color. Another hook that even with the mirror, you can't really appreciate till you have it in your hand. So pretty it almost fetches a tear.
So anyways, this hook is an H too (5mm) and it's 7 1/4 inches (18.4cm)of unbelievable grain.
Maybe your Sweetie doesn't know what to get you for Valentines day?? Well maybe drop a hint.
To new bidders: I try to post bids as they come in. I'll not be here ALL the time... and I won't stay up Valentine's eve, so if your bid doesn't show up right away, not to worry. Bids will be posted as soon as I'm able to get to them. Identical bids are entered by first-to-post so if your bid is the same as another, I'll go by which ever one was posted first. Also please increase bids by $5 minimum. email bids, if you like, to me at
