Lost: Favorite Crochet Hook! Reward!

I lost my favorite crochet hook last night. It is a blue "Boye" F hook with most of the paint worn off. It was given to me by my sister, Laurie, when I was about 10 years old and I've been using it ever since. I let Holland play with it last night for a few minutes, along with some leftover yarn and now I cannot find it! It is no doubt around the house somewhere, but I haven't discovered its hiding place yet!
Today I began making some of my knit-look fingerless gloves in black for my friend, Ann. I wanted to use my missing F hook for this...but had to use a substitute hook which is unmarked...maybe an F or G hook...and it too has a story behind it! It was given to me by my grandfather! He died when I was 8 years old and I didn't know him very well, but I do have this particular memory. One day when we were visiting, he took a double-ended hook that my grandma had and cut it in half so both my sister and I could have a hook to crochet with. Aren't Grandpas just the best! :)


  1. Hi, I found you trough Ravelry and I love your designs. I'm Belgian and I saw you'd (or your hubby) understand Dutch as well. That's cool. I'm still a beginner at crochet, but maybe I'll buy something in the future. I'll add you add a favourite designer. :) Best wishes.

  2. I studied German in school, so learning Dutch from my husband has been pretty easy. He speaks it to our daughter all the time as he really wants her to be bi-lingual. We visited Belgium last October and had a lovely time! :)
