Happy Hooks – or Why I’ve been ignoring the Blog

Approximately a month ago I purchased a set of Etimo hooks.  You may have heard of these wonderful hooks when Doris Chan blogged about them this past summer, or read about them recently on the CLF group at Ravelry.  They are from the Tulip Company out of Japan.

They are a lovely light weight and very comfortable in my hand for hours of happy crocheting.

I had purchased 3 of them at Chain Link in August and have really loved them.  In fact, I had been kicking myself for not purchasing a complete set when I had the opportunity.  So when MissJulep tweeted that she had sets for sell at her Etsy shop I was on it!

A few days later my package arrived.  It was like Christmas coming early!

The set is in a lovely carry case that neatly and compactly holds the full set of hooks (plus 2 of my extras), and comes with small scissors, 2 yarn needles (large and medium size) and a 4 1/2 inch ruler.  I added a few of my Clover locking stitch markers and now have a great go-anywhere crochet kit.

Instead of keeping my blog updated I have been a crocheting whirlwind with these lovely hooks.  I hope to soon have lots of new crochet projects to show you,  if I can tear myself away from crocheting long enough to take some pictures!
