Oh and if you are on my "follower" list and mention that fact, you get TWO entries! Otherwise, one entry per person, please.
Big hooks for sale! The Huge Egg Hook is an S and is made of Yew wood. Beautiful wood and a VERY useful hook that should be a joy to hold. Price: $30 (SOLD)
The other is an M (9mm on my Bates "knit check" gauge) Its made of good ole Black Walnut and is 8 inches long. Price: $30.
I wasn't sure what kind of wood this was till I looked it up. I just knew that it was very hard and very pretty. Why didn't I know? It was a gift to me in my "goody bag" that I received at the Crochet Cama retreat last year. Beautiful wood, wouldn't you say?
Left to right:
Tiger 1 is a G (4mm). It's 7 1/2 inches long. Price: $35 (SOLD)
Tiger 2 is an H (5mm ) It's 7 3/4 inches long. Price: $35 (SOLD)
Tiger 3 is an I (5.5mm on the ole Bates gauge) It's 7 1/2 inches long. Price: $35 (SOLD)
Tiger 4 is another H (5mm Bateswise) and is 7 3/4 inches long. Price: $35
All of these hooks have comfy thumb rests.
An ultra beautiful Cocobolo G is up for sale. This is one of the prettiest pieces of Cocobolo that I've come across. There's no thumb rest at this time, but I'll carve one at the request of the buyer. Amazingly beautirul hook. It's 7 1/2 inches long. Price: $45 (SOLD)
This amazing Marblewood hook is incredible. Part looks a bit like bamboo, and the darker part is like, well, dark bamboo. The grain looks like it might be rough but I guarantee its REALLY smooth. Size is an I (5 1/2mm) and it's 7 3/4 inches long. Price: $$40
And last but far from least is this set of Boye steel interchangeable hooks. I made a "Fumed Maple handle for this set and inset the otherwise plain aluminium handle. It comes with a very comfortable thumb rest and is ultra light weight, not to mention the pretty dark wood. You get 14 hooks in one with this set from size 1 - 14 in Boye steel hooks for your thread hooking comfort. Price: $65
You can buy any one or more of these hooks by emailing me your intentions at firstname.lastname@example.org . First offer gets the hook(s).
Thanks for your patience! I hope to get more hooks going soon. If you don't see something you like, I can do special orders.
Have a great weekend!
