Brainsbarn Apple Crochet Hook



Manufacturer: Brian & Anne of Brainsbarn.com

Type of Hook: Applewood (from my backyard) with sterling silver spheres & accents, and my birthstone - Amethyst, complete with a captive ring. Size I
Own/Covet: Own (a birthday gift to myself; blogged about it here.)

What I love about this hook: This is my first crochet hook created out of applewood. The applewood is amazing -- it is so lightweight! Even with the beautiful beadwork & carvings, the hook is well balanced and is so comfortable in hand. I love using this hooks on long-term projects for that very reason! I love the applewood so much that, at the time of this blog post, I have a request in for another. The next time you're in your backyard, or at the park, and see a pretty branch laying on the ground, look for hook potential -- you never know! :)

It's just so beautiful. I have some bamboo hooks but I bet a wooden hook is even better! I love the feel of real wood.
