Its almost a month and a bit since I started working on Matric crochet dress and its looking good!!! I feel like a kid with new puzzle, can’t wait to see final picture.
New project new challenges: I’m not a big fan of fine hooks, because I hold my hook like a “knife” and after a while my fingers become sore and I have to put plaster on my ring finger:(. Yes, I know there is very nice hooks with comfy handles out there, but unfortunatly not in my area:( and I don’t have time to wait for few week for delivery. But there is always a plan!
After few weeks into my fine work and sore fingers I couldn’t “handle” it anymore… so I bought baking clay, got my pasta machine out, hooks, and camera. And in an hour I had made my own crochet hook handles.
Here’s how I did it:
You will need: Oven Bake Clay and crochet hooks.
Please don’t forget to mark size of your hook on the handle!!! I did mine with little screwdriver or use stamp if you have one.
Fold paper plate and place hooks into the grooves. Set your oven to 130C and bake for 30-40 min.
