Happy Friday! Thank you for your comments yesterday about how you hold your hook while crocheting. How interesting for me to find out how we all do the same thing but differently.
Today I have to show you a few things. The first one is one that Mindy (In The Loop) reminded me about. Right before my ex mother-in-law passed away she gave me two cones of white cotton Peaches N Creme and her hook that was passed down to her from her mom. (This was when I taught myself to crochet in earnest) It's a Susan Bates 00. I have never seen a hook like this. I was honored that she wanted me to have it and not any of her 3 girls. We had had a conversation about me learning to crochet and that's when she told me to take them, that she wouldn't be on this earth very much longer to use them. I never really used the hook either until I got home last night. I actually like how it works. I used it on Bernat baby yarn and some Lion Brand Fun yarn that's quite chunky for the hook. What I can't figure out is what the other hook on the other end is for? Is it for frogging? I'd be obliged if someone knows the answer. I've searched Susan Bates stuff and can't find any that have an end like that. I just took about 10 pics trying to get a good shot of the end. This was the best I could do.
I hope your weekend (shortened as it will be by one hour) will be the best and all you dreamed it can be.
