Working with wool is one thing. Working with wood is another. I enjoy both- they feel so very connected. I've been working on 3 custom oak crochet hooks for someone who fell in love with the notion of rustic sticks (a kindred heart!). She wanted the rustic remains of the tree left on the hook, and so I enjoyed an afternoon of carving with yarn nearby for testing. Testing? Let me tell you how it works. I try to manicure each stick taking into account its natural curves to form it into the nuances that will make it an ease to use with wool, cotton, silk or any other favored yarn for years to come. And as I carve I keep yarn nearby and when I feel I have a nice curve of the hook, I test that theory by chaining, single crocheting, and then double crocheting to find any awkward bulges in the wood or a catch that needs sanding. I always grateful for the feedback from fellow crocheters when they try my hooks, because everyone has a different style, and what is comfortable to my grasp may need some working to be comfortable in your hand.
These beauties came out so uniquely! I took a (thoughtful and well placed) harvest of a branch from our scrub oak which makes up the two sticks on the right, and the H hook came from our 100 year old live oak tree from a branch the tree surrendered on its own. This means the live oak branch is fully cured (and is a bit harder to carve) But the two scrub oak branches came freshly harvested and were green (easier to carve). The scrub oak branches will become harder as they cure over time.
They need varnishing, but I wanted to post before varnishing to make sure they didn't need any more work.
Enjoy! And happy hooking, wooling, and carving! :)
