Two hand carved crochet hooks

On the weekend, a friend of mine in North Carolina posted photos of a collection of crochet hooks that I carved several years ago.

She has been nudging me to start carving crochet hooks again, and seeing the photo of all those hooks inspired me.

So, I picked up my carving tools and have been carving non-stop.

Tadah!  Here are the first 2 hooks that I have carved in absolutely yonks!

The little girl, carved from birch,  is just a touch under 6 inches tall (which is appropriate, as she’s inspired by Hitty dolls).  The hook is about a size “N’ 10mm

The Rabbit is carved from a mystery hardwood that was in our woodworking shop (and was hard as nails to carve)

and is not quite 8 1/2 inches tall. The hook is about a size “N’ 10mm.

They are both for sale.  Each is $95.00 + shipping – if you are interested, please drop me a note! 🙂

Thanks for the inspiration, Maitri! 🙂
