Look What Postie Bought Me ...
|From Robin's Nest|
You may remember my not so successful attempt at making my own polymer handles for crochet hooks? I was told later by several people that the Fimo I had used was the wrong kind and consequently difficult to soften. I had used 'classic' as opposed to the 'softee', which would have made it more malleable. In my frustration I ordered one from Robin's Nest on Etsy - and I am so glad that I did. It is beautiful, so perfectly finished and a joy to hold.
It has a delicate sparkle to it and is in a delightful shade of sky blue and beautifully smooth and polished. Robin Murray hand makes these lovely hadles at her home in Vermont and she also sells yarns and buttons, which are also hand made. Do pay her a visit sometime soon (have your credit card handy) at mynestofyarnandbuttons.blogspot.com, or alternatively see her goods on Etsy - www.etsy.com/shop/robinmurray
I so love the way that the hook was presented - it came in its own 'pretty in pink' drawstring bag along with a matching darning needle - isn't that cute? It also had a pretty label attached with a tiny peg. Oh ... do give one to someone you love ... it is so adorable. Now I need more in other sizes!
And now for some serious crochet!
