|Crochet Hook Case $25|
My crochet hook case was a little case that came free with my mother's order of Vanna's Afghans A to Z. Funny that she ordered it, because she did almost no handicrafts in the 90s. In the 90s I was very into crochet, especially doilies (it was my Victorian phase, okay?), so I had a complete set of the impossibly small crochet hooks and a few larger ones. As I (thankfully) outgrew the Victorian phase, I slowly added regular crochet hooks to my collection. My mother gave me the case, I did not steal that one. However, it was lined with a felt-like material that was always snagging my tiny metal crochet hooks. This tells me that Vanna is not a doily-maker, because an actual tiny crochet hook user would never have let that lining go in.
Anyway, now that I have become more of a knitter I have found the dear 1960s knitting needle collection to be insufficient. I have added many circulars and several sets of dpns. I had been storing them all in a magazine holder, which just wasn't cutting it. I had been looking around for a cute case, but hadn't been having much luck.
I am so happy to report my search is over! I have found the most adorable cases for knitting needles and crochet hooks. They are made by Stephanie Boardman who owns the etsy shop Fanciful Belongings. I bought the two cases shown in this post a few months ago and they are great! So great, in fact, that I just ordered another needle case for my dpns and a small zippered pouch for the growing collection of stitch markers and notions that I've been shoving any old place. Boardman uses a beautiful array of fabrics and you can pick which you want when you place your order. She then makes the cases just for you. They are of excellent quality and I cannot recommend them enough!
