This morning (really early), after letting the cat out, I was contemplating what I would accomplish today… and “bam” — and idea popped into my head and, well, my day began and I was up and making the idea happen.
A few years ago my niece gave me a wonderful jewelry box and this morning it changed roles. Let me backtrack a bit…
I happened upon this crochet hook and thought I’d give it a try >>> LOVED IT.
I love it so much that I want to get a whole set of them. They are shorter than normal and have the bulb on the end that fits lovely in the palm of the hand, sort of… I can crochet for days and not get a cramp. Love them.
“but” .. I spent two days online last week searching for more. No success.
And then I went to a local Len’s Mill Store and “what to my wondering eyes should appear” .. but several such hooks! Oh my. (Nothing bigger than 5mm) but I added to my set. (I don’t use the little hooks much but with my proposed challenge for the new year, they will come in handy.)
So, I now have a: 5mm, 4.5mm. 4mm, 3.5mm. 2.5mm. 1.5mm
I love them so much that I wanted to make a storage case for them. I had made a wooden stand for pens and thought that would work but the holes weren’t big enough for these handles — but I could make another one.
And then this morning.. the idea!!!
(sorry about picture quality, but it was early this morning when all this happened)
The Jewelry Box
The Crochet Tool Box
Top row: embroidery needle, stitch counter, and stitch markers
Middle row: scissors .. these don’t quite fit so I’ll have to go shopping :D
Bottom row: my crochet hooks.
Now I can set this anyway and it will look PRETTY!
Thanks to my niece, MandaPanda!
