Hook Pens Galore and a growing girl!
According to my hook size survey, it seems that the most popular hook size is size 14 by quite a large margin followed not so closely by size 12.
I think the reason for this is that size 14 is the smallest hook that can purchased through the major craft stores. Currently sizes 15/.5mm and 16/.4mm need to be special ordered and they cost twice as much.
In general sizes 10 and up are all very small hooks and unless you have superb eyesight they can be somewhat indistinguishable from one another.
Anyhow, with all that said there are new hook pens in the Etsy shop, lot's of size 14's and even one size 15. So first come first serve.
Also, I have some SUPER BLING hook pens coming soon!
This past week has been a big one for Miss P. She started on solid food as a supplement to breastfeeding. She is a fantastic eater, and by the third bite she was trying to take the spoon away from me and do it herself. Yes, I think I'm in trouble with little miss independent here. She is also standing on her own. She can't even crawl yet but here she is...looking like she is ready for a snowboard....and she is not even 6 months old yet.
So remember my prediction two posts back where I said I bet Jess wins first and Sarah wins second place in the Shuttlebirds Tat-off? Ha ha, I was spot on! ...Now if I had been there...maybe just maybe the results would have been a little different??? But Jess would still have taken first I'm sure!
Please stop over to my MadMadPotter Blog and see what I have been up to.....pretty soon you will see some more tatting showing up in my pottery world...
