I have become obsessed with crochet hooks and having almost one in every color, size, design, and material. I didn’t realize there are ergonomic ones, wood ones, some made from bamboo, some out of plastic (of course), and the old school ones made from metal (those I inherited from my grandmother and mother). They were starting to take over the bottom of my bag and in not a very orderly fashion. So I decided to make up a roll up organizer stash for my hooks. I think the next one I make will have either some batting or lightweight fusible interfacing. I love the one I have, but I think it needs some more texture to it.
I tried making one with heavier material, for more texture, but it turned out too bulky and didn’t roll up very nicely.
I need to make one for my knitting needles, but in a different pattern so I don’t get them confused.
I’m trying to use up some of the stash of material I have accumulated over the years. I find material that I either love the pattern or the colors or it’s on sale or make up any old excuse it’ll do so I buy it and keep it like it’s some prized priceless antique, which is just ridiculous. I need to start purging. And making. It’ll do my soul (and my husband’s blood pressure) some good.
Although he’s one to talk, he’s lost count of how many fishing lures he has.
