Here's something really special which I
This magnificent crochet hook was hand carved from Australian Red Gum... by Jimbo the extraordinary whittler!
Jimbo sells his hand carved treasures over on his blog here... and every now and then there is a GIVEAWAY.
Well - I was fortunate enough to be the winner of this piece of art!
Pop over to Jimbo's Front Porch (the story is just below the photo of the hooks) and have a read about the struggles Jimbo had with this particularly feisty piece of timber... it would seem that this hook really is a one-of-a-kind, as he won't be tackling red gum again any time soon.
It may have been a nightmare to create... but it is a spectacular piece. I especially love all the 'character marks' within the wood.
Oh yeah - and it's a DELIGHT to work with! Thanks Jimbo
