Shriek! It Came In

I am so excited, see Tiffany blogged about the hook first-Laurel Hill hook (made of palmwood)! I have been looking for these all over, but wanted to know if it had a Boye head or a more inline head like Bates-she mentioned Yarntopia, which led me to Sheryl, one of the partners who owns Yarntopia in Texas and someone who's blog I read and she's also used my "Marvelous Fulled Mini Tote" pattern to teach a class is felting/fulling crochet. What did I do? I went to the website (still a work in progress) and then I emailed Sheryl. They carry the hooks! She verified they had the inline head and also a more pointed head for ease of use. I was so excited. I ordered an "I" hook to try out (figured I used that the most, followed by H and then J-I will update you on how much I love it (but it's so pretty and lightweight, how could I not?) and I plan to get a few more sizes in July!

Sheryl also sent me a little something extra she got at the TNNA-how cool is this?




I'm clickable!


Thanks Sheryl!

ETA: I'm using it now and love it and am having no trouble with it's "untapered neck"-gah! I'll order more at the beginning of the month!

Cool hook!

Megan said...

Looks awesome! I still remember the day I discovered Bates hooks; I could finally crochet with Microspun and not split it! I just wish I could find teeny hooks with the inline head, for fixing dropped stitches when I knit socks. :(

Love the wood grain on your hook. I'm so behind on my crocheting... maybe I should treat myself to a new hook.

So how do you like the hook ? I'm really curious, is it a bit fatter than a regular hook ?
