  • Eclipse is pretty cool. It's a keeper.
  • I wish I could keep my Legacy dA with options to add to my profile
  • Trash Eclipse and start all over again.
  • Why couldn't Legacy dA have these features added to it?
  • Where did everyone go?
  • The cake is a lie.

And More Crochet Hooks (as well as other things).

And More Crochet Hooks (as well as other things).

As noted in the previous journal, I covered news about making new crochet hooks in the old school style. I have completed 3, have a fourth hook done but needing to be photographed and began a fifth one last night before I just petered out and had to go sleep.  Also, my hands hurt from working with the files and hanging on to the bone as I shaped it.  Today, I get to pick up where I left off and shape that newest hook. If you refer back to this particular image, I have a number of blanks and partially completed hooks laid out. The bottom five blanks are as follows along with their status.  Top one is the new Fox and Grapes.  The second one

New bone hooks!

New bone hooks!

Last week, I ordered a number of Grobet files and once they came in, I was tickled to get started in using them. I've decided to make some old school hooks with spirals, ropes, beads and bands.  The simplicity of these style hooks is their strength.  This is the sort of hook I made in the beginning back in 1994 and every now and then, I must revisit that style. The files are making shaping the bone a breeze and I have a set of Grobet '0' and some Grobet '00'.  My older files are more like finishing files, they have been used to a point they polish more than actually file out the bone.  I hope that I can find and purchase riffle files.  Thos

Have a great day UwU

Thanks for the fave!

Looks like you've been busy! I'm glad you're having a good time with it. ^_^

I was listening to the DJs tonight at the virtual FWA and then it died...

Working on a new bone hook.  Somewhat old school.  Have the fox and grapes and 2 others still to work on.  So, yeah, I'm trying to keep busy and make hooks.

Kid and I were talking about FWA 2021.  Hope we can make that but I don't think we'll be able to get a table in the Den.  Have to see what happens.

Even if you don't end up getting a table, it would be cool if you could drop in for a bit and check out the festivities. ^_^ I wish you luck in your endeavors. Stay safe!

We'll see what next year brings. ^_^
