A thread hook set!!
The above is in response to a challenge to produce a Jimbo hook handle for an interchangeable hook set. After noodling on the problem for some time, I ordered a Boye brand interchangeable head crochet set (with steel hooks, sized from #1 - #14). Yup that's 14 steel hooks and a single handle. I modified the handle as you can see, by adapting it to the Jimbo hook style with a longer handle body and larger grip surface than you'd find in the original set. Kind of a costly thing to do, but the result is effectively 14 different hooks, since all the hook heads are interchangeable in the one handle.
What do you think?? Is this something I should be making for sale? I'd have to charge $65.
Thanks for dropping by!
