Have you heard about Jimbo and his hand carved hooks???
If not, you should take a moment to check out his handiwork... over at his blog: Jimbo's Front Porch
Read Jimbo's story while you are there.
Jimbo kindly sent one of his precious hooks to Crochet Lovers Victoria, so that we could use it to work on some charity rugs. The hook has been making its way around our group, with each of us using her to make three twelve inch squares.
Finally I had my turn, and I have to say... she is MAGNIFICENT!
It did take a little bit of getting used to. The hook feels a bit bottom-heavy at first, and seems awkward on the wrist. But I found that the more I used it, the easier it became... and in the end, I didn't want to let her go!
I have never worked with a hook so smooth. She is truly beautiful.
Here she is with my 'one-eyed, one-horned, flying purple people eater'
