    Crochet Hooks - Part 2

    I delivered the crochet hooks yesterday and she was very happy with them.
    She wanted a variety of sizes, both in the shaft and the handle.
    This is a photo of the 12 I gave her.



    From the top they are:
    Zebrawood
    Padauk
    Bloodwood
    Bloodwood
    Bloodwood
    Purpleheart
    Padauk
    Birch
    Cocobolo
    Purpleheart
    Purpleheart
    Walnut

    I had fun and learned a bit. Can't ask for more than that!
    Why has common sense
    become so uncommon?

    Those look real nice, Gord. Looks like you got the hooked ends nice and consistent.

    Those are pretty cool. I admire your tenacity to stick with small tedious work. I would like to know how you cut the hook ends. They are all very uniform.
