So it’s been a busy week, but check it out! My Crochet Hook Challenge was featured on The Moogly Bog! Thanks much to Tamara for the feature of my video on Engineering a Crochet Hook. Check out her great article on Making Your Own Crochet Hooks! Jimbo and I are both mentioned. The Moogly Blog features a lot of patterns and wonderful articles for both knitting and crochet.
Also thanks to Kathryn Vercillo for featuring my Crochet Rumination article about “The Shape Of Crochet Hooks” in her most recent edition of Crochet Link Love on Crochet Concupiscence. Kathryn writes extensively about the latest happenings in crochet. So if you consider yourself a serious fan of crochet and you’re not yet on her subscribers list, or following her on Twitter, well then you should be. She will get you in touch with more crocheters and crochet related news than any other one stop shop outside The Crochet Liberation Front. And y’all know my love for the CLF, so check Kathryn’s blog out!
Mrs. Maplesworth Is Done!
And it’s time to share details and put her up for bid. Bidding begins at $5 with free shipping! You have nothing to lose, so thanks for your bid! (See bidding details below.)
To recap, here’s the first video introducing Mrs. Maplesworth’s design:
Here are some closeups of this particular design. Note the angle of the throat to where it drops back for the bowl.
And here is the latest video showing off her polish! That shine comes from an hour and a half’s work just polishing alone. This hooks is unfinished, as I did not seal it with anything, but it is super slick, and super highly polished by hand, which imparts its own kind of protection.
Silent Auction Bidding – How This Works:
If you’re new here, please read the previous posts about my crochet hook challenge and subscribe to my blog. It’ll be a lot easier to stay on top of things that way!
Please email your bids ($5 increments) to Worx@PixieWorx.net with “crochet hook auction” in the subject line. The auction will run from now until Thursday November 1st, ending at 11:59 pm Central Time. This will allow me a chance to get your hook in the mail before the end of the week. Any tied bids will be settled in favor of the earlier entry. I am including free shipping for this auction within the US. If you are international, I’ll pay what it would have been for shipping in the US if you’ll pay the difference. Payment accepted by Paypal. Let me know if you have any questions!
