I know our winter here in northern Ohio hasn't been nearly as bad as some (think Wisconsin), but I've had enough. I am so ready for spring to come and stay. I sure hope the groundhog's prediction is correct. Only 31 days until spring :)
When I started hooking back in 2005 I bought a Hartman hook. At that time they cost in the neighborhood of $25 - $30, but having used it for so many years, definitely got my money's worth.
Since that time I have purchased two more Hartman's, a Conner hook and several others, but I would always go back to my original Hartman. It just felt "right".
Well, let me tell you about another hook. Friend Linda had told me how wonderful they are, but I hesitated ordering one since I was still loving my original Hartman. Several times I visited their etsy shop and admired them. See, they are made from old tool handles so no two are alike. And you know that I like anything old :) I decided to go for it and ordered one because I just loved the old paint on it. Well . . . it came and I absolutely LOVE it. I've been using it for a week (with an 8.5 and 9 cut) and it just feels "right", too. The hooks are very reasonably priced. $30 which includes shipping and the best customer service you could ask for. After placing my order, I got a personal thank you from Sharon, the shop owner. She said I could return the hook, even in a month or two, if I was not happy. Check them out on etsy ~ Hudson Valley Rugs.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
Pug hugs :)
