Today I have a treat for you! Five brand new crochet hooks and two fantastic new nostepindes -- all on eBay!
I've put together some GORGEOUS color combinations, and I can't wait for you to see them! In the mix are some bright and brilliant dyed hardwoods as well as some purely natural beauties.
Take that Olivewood hook on the right, there ---> Supremely silky and wonderful to hold. Even in such a small size hook, the wood feels remarkably substantial in the hand, and it's positively a dream to crochet with! (You can probably tell at this point that I'm enormously fond of Olivewood!) Anyway, the grain stripes -- chocolate on cream -- are simply divine to behold.
The two nosties I added to my store are made of the wonderfully colorful dyed hardwoods that I do so much work with. I put up one in "Tapestry" (which you see just to the right), and one in the "Mardi Gras" colorway. I simply love the way the layers of dyed hardwood wrap themselves so beautifully around the shapes I turn -- they accentuate every curve and line.
By the way, this weekend I will be doing all-day demos at the Sustainable Living Fair in Ft. Collins, CO. I'll making all kinds of things on my lathe, and will have crochet hooks and nostepindes available for purchase too! It's a great opportunity to see how turned items are made by a professional woodturner. I absolutely LOVE doing demonstrations, and I hope to see you there!
