As I was perusing tumblr this morning, I found this wonderful post by whogivesastitch, which inspired me to make some chunky-monkey crochet hooks. I had worked on a double-sided, jedi-knight style pecan hook as a custom order a while ago and that was loads of fun, so I knew today was going to be A BLAST OF AWESOME. And it was. First up, we got Mrs. Cherry: 6.75 inches long, 36 millimeters wide with a super-creamy, cafe complexion. 

In color it’s actually very similar to pecan, but the light texture of the wood makes it way easier to work.

I love the little lines of pink along the growth rings in cherry; such a fine wood! Anyway, moving on to Mrs Mahogany, who is also a 36mm and just a tad longer at 7 inches.

 

This mahogany was reclaimed from the cutoffs pile in a lumber yard in Warwickshire, England, so it has traveled around plenty! The color of mahogany is wonderful and chocolately and contrasts pretty well with the custardy, Ambrosia Maple stand that goes with the hook.

 The stand idea just sort of popped into my head while I was working on the hook, and I think it’s a great way to show off the hook while it’s not in use. I know that these big hooks are free spirits with a lot of momentum, and like to roll around the table when left to their own devices, so the stand is meant to hold it down (or up, rather) and keep it from escaping! 

Both are available for sale here! I know that last time a posted a huge hook there was a lot of good reception ( I know right, 26 notes is HUGE!!!!!) so let me know what you guys think!
