~ My crochet hook collection ~


I had a nice comment left for me by Shanti on my last post about my crochet hooks. She asked to see more, so here you go Shanti - here's my crochet hook collection.

As you can tell, pink is my favorite color - but I do have a couple other colors thrown in there. I even made a burgandy and gold crochet hook I can use when the Washington Redskins are playing. :)

The blue and green hook at the very top was made for me by my grandson William - it's my very favorite. :)

  1. Those are all so pretty. I have one hook that has a wooden rest on it but I just can't get used to using it. I hold my hook too close to the base of the hook or something, I guess.

  2. I absolutely ADORE your blog!! I check it multiple times throughout the day everyday! You are very admirable in my eyes. I, like you, have my own room for my crafts, it is slowly turning into my 'crocet room'. Thank goodness my 6 babies know not to touch Mommy's things unless we are all learning togeter =) My question to you is, how do you get the ball on the end of your crochet hook afer you have baked it? I have done mine per your directions but for some reason one side keeps burning. Not a bad burn but it is noticable, any suggestions?

  4. Thanks ladies. :)

    Crystal - you add the glass bead before you bake the crochet hook. I attach mine with a head pin (get them in the jewelry aisle). After you bake the hook - let cool - remove the bead with the head pin - add a drop of super glue and then replace them.

    For baking - make a pad out of quilt batting to lay the hook on.

    Also - it's a good idea to make a 'tent' out of aluminum foil so the hook does not get burned.

    If you do a search you will find lot's of ideas out there. Good luck. :)

  5. Beautiful hook handles -- I am going to try this for sure. I just realized your weather thingy says "Bowie, MD" -- which is where I am from! I left 13 years ago and now live in South Carolina, but I still come visit my sister (near Columbia) fairly often. I lived in Pointer Ridge, on Parkington Lane. Small world, huh?

  6. Thanks Michelle. Small world for sure! I grew up in Old Bowie - graduated from Bowie High in '79. Still live in Old Bowie. Probably will depart this world living in Old Bowie. :)

    The color of the hook William made for you is very pretty and compliments to him (already able to make them - well: I am not, at my age!).
