Hooks by DeadmanCrick Bramble
Up for sale are two hooks made from that pretty but dangerous bramble bush up on the Ranch. I call it a bramble bush because it has these really long and lethally pointed thorns that always seem to draw a small blood sample when I go to collect hook wood from it's dead branches. Ah but it's worth it. What's a couple pints of O+ when you can get this kind of result? Beautiful contrasty crochet hooks that are very hard and a feast for the eye. Plus they have a history. They're from the bramble bush down by the crick where I watched a standoff between some White Tail Deer and a small flock of wild turkeys. They'd chase each other round that bramble bush first one way then the other. Hard telling who won, but the deer did finally run off so it looks like the turkeys won.
Anyways, these hooks are very pretty and made from the same stick. The top hook is a K (6.5mm) and the bottom hook is an I (5.5mm). They're both about the same length, at a smidge under 7 inches (17.5cm).
Here's the deal. For you today I'll sell these hooks for $25 each. Not a bad price when you consider what I went through to bring them into Hookdom.
As before, please email me with your order. First orders get the hook(s).

Since this is a direct sale thing, there's no time limit. I'll simply edit this post to indicate when a hook is sold.
