These are Jobillo (edited to correct spelling) hooks. Jobilla is a nut tree and not only does it produce cashews, but the wood is just phenomenal! I think this is the most lathe friendly wood that I've worked with so far, outstripping the German Plum that is also very nice but just a little more difficult to work. So look for more Jobilla hooks in the future coming from Jimbo's Porch. The wood willingly works down to smaller sizes and seems to stay solid while the shank is formed. Ever have a wood piece turning at 2000 rpm with a shank of 3.75mm? Scairy, but Jobilla holds up well, which translates to really fine hook wood. And the bonus is that it's beautiful wood! Lots of surprises in the grain and lots of color variation.
Oh and bytheway, that little swatch you see under the hooks? I crocheted that!! Amazing eh? I think if I worked at it another few years, I might get to the point of making a fair warshcloth (up at the Crick we pronounce "wash" as "warsh").
Ok so to the hooks. Lets start at the bottom and work our way up,
As measured on a Susan Bates "knit check" gauge:
Bottom hook:An H (5mm), a little over 7 inches long.(SOLD)
Next up from the bottom is a size 7 (4.5mm) a wee bit under 7 inches (SOLD)
Third up is an F (3.75mm) at 6 3/4 inches (16.75cm)long.(SOLD)
And the top hook is a G (4mm) and is 6 7/8 inches long .(SOLD)
All four hooks have carved thumb rests.
And there you have it.
Price: $35 each
