Gentle readers, my affinity for crochet tools is still alive, fat and happy. I found an Etsy (don’t you just adore Etsy?!?!?) shop that sells the coolest, happiest crochet hooks and knitting needles, I couldn’t leave the shop without putting in a custom order!
The name of the shop is DotDotSmile, and the owner’s name is Kelli. Kelli sells the sweetest polymer clay-embellished knitting needles and crochet hooks, and also, hand-made knitting notions and other cool cuteness. She’s a great gal, with quite a nice array of hand-made knit and crochet tools.
You would think that the clay tops would throw off the weight or balance, but that isn’t the case. The tools I bought feel beautiful in my hand, smooth and perfectly balanced. I bought bamboo, so they’re also superbly light-weight and warm in the hand.
My sister is a huge, life-long Dr. Who fan, and one of her favorite things is the Tardis. Lo and behold, Kelli has a set right there in her shop! You know, I had to buy them. When I got them home, they feel so good in my hand, I want to learn how to hand knit!
How cool are these sci-fi knitting gems!!!
Now, me, I have a life-long love of all things fiber, as you know…and cows…and clowns. I love clowns! Apologies to those I just creeped out, but there it is. I will be seeing Kelli for a Cow-embellished hook. And why not? A Clown-Cow! It can be done, Kids. This little guy was a custom order!
Yes! This is that size-G Tunisian hook I needed! I am, of course, still using the little one I made, on another project, but I started using this the very next day after I got it in the mail. Smoooooth and balanced, warm…everything you can want in a hook, and the Happy-Fun Factor is, shall we say…off the hook!
Of course, staying on task is a challenge now, as I have to stop frequently and gaze at my little grinning clown…
Isn’t he the bomb?!?!?!?
Now, you have the links, you even have a widget in my side bar! If you’re in the market for a cool new crochet or knitting tool, stitch marker, needle threader, or cool desk goo-gaw, go see Kelli. Turn around is fast! You’ll have your new toy in short order.
Have some FUN today!
