New Clay Hooks

After covering a few of my aluminum hooks, some with success, some not, I decided to do more of them. I love the way they feel in my hand and I can crochet for hours with one of them without pain. I had to go to Walmart yesterday to pick up more yarn for my ripple afghan and decided to look around and see if they had any polymer clay. I was surprised that they did, they seem to have really cut down on stock of craft supplies since they re-set the store. I hate what they did to the yarn section, so much less than what they previously had. The nearest craft store is a 50 mile drive from here, but if Walmart continues to cut back on yarn I guess I'll have to make the trip. Anyway, I found all of the yarn that I needed, except for the Monet, which is the variegated one in the afghan. I'm hoping that I have enough left to finish it.
Yesterday afternoon I covered 4 more of my hooks with polymer clay. Here's what they look like.



That one on the bottom is a 2.5 mm. I think the smallest I've ever crocheted with is a 3.5 but I wanted to have a couple smaller covered in clay, just in case. I now have an almost complete set, ranging from 2.5 mm to 6.5 mm in half mm increments. I'm just missing the 6 mm, which I'll have to find and cover with clay. Here's a view of the ones I've done so far.



Well I better get busy, today is a rainy day and a good one for crocheting.
Until next time, happy hooking!

Dead Laptop Slow Progress

My laptop has died. It won't connect to the internet. It's old as the hills and not worth spending the money to replace the network ...
