YOU are what makes this ever swirling Madness so delightful!

    Oh wow! These are amazing. I have severe rheumatoid arthritis and have only recently learned crochet after finding a thick handled crochet hook online.Winning one of yours would be such a delight.
    I shall keep an out for them going on sale too. Thanks for offering the give-a-way. xx

  2. Keith Evans,

    I think this is a much nicer description of a Love Handle, and wouldn’t mind having a few of these, that I wouldn’t want to get rid of!

  3. Linda Edwards,

    I would really love to win one of these hooks with beautiful handles as I have admired them for a while. I even got a book out of the library to learn how to make them but that is as far as I have got.

  5. Carol Samsel,

    These are so awesome!!! Would love to win one…the .rafflecopter. does not seem to be working on my computer so I can’t enter 🙁

  6. Wendy ward,

    I have never used a clay hook before. I imagine they would be a great help for arthritic hands- and so pretty too. You are very talented!

  7. Leah Willis,

    Your “love handle hooks” ARE beautiful. Unfortunately they would not be a hook I could use. I Love Susan Bates hooks but for me the handle would need to be not as thick and come down closer to the hook past the flattened area. I am a pencil hold crocheter and that big fat end is in the way rather than being a help. Since I don’t do bouillon stitch, closer to the hook is good. I’ve tried the Susan Bates with the Bamboo handles, which are very uncomfortable for me. I CAN use Tulip Etimo handles and have 2 sets. The Crochet Dude has some with a similar handle but I don’t like Boye hooks he uses. Clover Amour makes them too but there is something about them I don’t care for (I have 2 and always switch to another hook.) I’ve been crocheting for 43 years and now have arthritis in my hands so handles are a great invention but I need “Pencil Hold Friendly” ones.

  8. Tammi,

    I love that number!! I can retire on 2-22-2022….my birthday is 2-22!! The hooks are beautiful, I would love to learn to make those handles. Great use of your gifted talents. 🙂

    Thank you for this opportunity. I think these hooks are so pretty. I would use them to continue my projects that I make for the food bank, lower income, and the homeless in the area.

  12. Concetta,

    I do a lot of crocheting! I tried to do something like this once using cloth! It wasn’t a dismal failure but not a rousing success either. The fun was in the trying! 🙂 Your idea is much better!! It would be an honor to win one!! Creative minds are amazing!!

  13. Joanne,

    I am just in awe of your awesome work. I love Moogly and I hope I won Your clay hook too…. Your “Hook” will make me very happy.;D
    Thank you so much for sharing with us all!!!!

  14. Kazzie,

    I’m a very Mad mad maker but a new Madmadlian!!! I love all your colours especially! I’m also curious how you get such pretty patterns on your crochet hooks! Does the polymer come like that or do you make the flowers etc yourself? I’d like a whole set!!!!!!!! So happy to join you all … Have. Happy day everyone… I’m just finishing a beautiful pair of socks for a friends birthday! Xxx
