Kay Stephenson is a freelance writer and fiber artist living in Atlanta, Ga with her husband, Mark, and her dog, Lady. Working in several fiber related craft areas, she combines quilting, crochet, and wet felting techniques to create unique works of art.
Kay blogs about her craft at http://www.stitchingtimes.blogspot.com. She says, "I learned to crochet, knit and sew at my mother's knee. She could do it all from sewing to tatting, crochet, knitting, embroidery. I learned to knit when I was about 6 or 7 and just never stopped learning new crafts and techniques."
I love the look and practicality of felted crochet hook cases for bamboo and aluminum hooks, but when it comes to the tiny steel hooks, they poke right through the felt no matter how dense I make it. That's why I designed this case specifically for all of my steel hooks. Now I can keep them all organized in one place and find just the size I need for any project. The case also slips into a project bag and can keep all the hooks you need close to hand without them jangling and tangling in the bottom of the bag.
The case has eight pockets, each of which is roomy enough for two or three hooks. I currently have a total of twelve hooks in my case and there is still room for more. Because of the size, this is a great project for using up remnants of fabric from other projects. Load the bag with a starter set of steel hooks and include a ball of fine crochet thread and you have a really special gift for any crafter you know.
