NEW CROCHET HOOK...for my birthday

sssssshhhhhh! not the one I really wanted but thanks Phil for thinking of me, even so I am very impressed with the feel of it and will definitely give the Clover Amore ones a go.
Phil thought this was the one I wanted...... LOVE HIM!
It felt completely different from the metal ones i usually use a lot shorter but I soon got used to it and it felt good.
 
I was going to show you my latest crochet project from a quilt book, but....
mmmmmm make yourself comfy why don't you Brupbrup?
 
Been trying out a tester for a row of stitches from sc, through hdc, dc, htr to treble
I'm sure there must be a stitch out there some where like this?  
Any one know?
 
I found my Mums old Needlework book, temporarily lost, she had it for her 21st birthday in 1947.
A lot of crochet stitches in there we all use but don't know the names of.
 
Happy Hooking everyone

  1. I think Phil did a great job because that is my favorite hook. I have them in almost all sizes, and really if I am straight with you several in each size. He may have done you a great favor.

  2. I have the Soft Touch and the Amour in all sizes and I love them both.
    I find I get less fatigue and aching in my hand, so I'm able to crochet for longer.
    A lovely birthday present :)

  3. What an interesting looking crochet hook. I've never tried one like that. I love the look of your mum's old Needlework book! I love browsing old books full of lovely and useful ideas! That new stitch sample is really very pretty!

    2. I think it's precious that he wanted you to have what you wanted on your birthday, instead of what he thought would be more impressive. He did so well!

  6. Any man who gives crochet hooks for birthday presents is to be cherished! Happy Birthday, Sue! Love that vintage volume of your mother's - just something lovely about browsing a book that previous generations of crafty women have loved. E x
