I got my first birthday present! Very sneaky present I might add! My lovely friend Traci got me this:
GORGEOUS hand carved crochet hook.
I'd seen it at the Wool Gathering in Yellow Springs back in September and was admiring it. She apparently bought it when I had my back turned and gifted it to me for my birthday.
It's so pretty I'm almost afraid to use it. Almost. I'll definitely use it, but it will NOT go in the bag with all my other hooks. This one will be put somewhere special. I don't know where yet, though.
Thanks Traci! I so love it.
