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! :)

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!
