I love you Mr Goldfish!

Several times a week the postman delivers a parcel addressed to Mr Goldfish... always some 'bargain' he has picked up on ebay!

Today was no exception. We arrived home to discover yet another parcel on the doorstep...

But this time, when he opened it... he handed the contents over to me. What a fabulous surprise! The most wonderful array of crochet hooks was inside.

and these teensy weensy ones...

THIRTY-SIX HOOKS

Until today I only owned a grand total of about ten crochet hooks, so this has been a major boost to my supplies! What an absolute treasure my husband is.

Awesome! I love hooks and I've been dying to try out some wooden ones! Do you know the brand for those or are they mysteries?

Either way, it's very exciting.

Do you have a hook holder? Are you going to make one?

I'm drooling over the collection- your husband is truly a gem.

lauria - yes... very exciting, I can't wait to play with them all! they're a bit of a mystery bunch... at the moment I keep my hooks in an old tin can... lol... not very fancy is it? so I will definitely have to find a more suitable home for them now that they are breeding

jc - yes - I think I'll keep him!

jacqui - I'm sure that can be arranged!

i think I have the exact same bamboo ones and the coloured ones. They are nice hooks. Watch out with the bamboos though, I find they have a tendency to catch some yarns.

I'll try and make a hook holder, love a challenge. What is the length of them, are they all the same? And 36 spots? Have started thinking about it already...need your address!

Gotta scream!! aaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! Awesome collection of hooks. Here in India, I don't get all the sizes and types. I have to order from Amazon or similar site.

But hats off to your hubby. He's great!
