Today I wanted to share my favorite hook cases that are stashed all around my house. I have them in craft bags, in nooks and crannies, and who knows where else. I say ‘my favorite’ because I have more hidden around somewhere, but those are empty and got set aside for some reason or another.
So this first one is THE favorite. It holds everything I need in one easy and convenient place. I initially made this one at my daughter’s request. She wanted something she could store her pen’s and a sketchbook all together. I made it to her specifications and then she decided the sketchbook was bigger than what she told me so I repurposed it for my own use as a hook case. It ended up being my favorite one. It holds my hooks easily and the pouch holds my gauge tool and measuring tape and anything else that’s an awkward size.
Then I have this smaller one that I made years ago to take a few of my tools to work so I could teach the kids how to crochet. Now I use it when I travel somewhere and don’t want to take the bigger one. It has my less important hooks so if I lose one, I’m not too upset about it.
I do a lot of Tunisian crochet and I needed something that could hold my longer hooks. I originally made this one to hold my knitting needles, Tunisian crochet hooks and regular hooks. Too bad knitting didn’t last long but it served it’s purpose well.
But eventually I made this new one for my longer hooks. I’ve stuck with this one for awhile now.
And then I have my cups. I keep one by my bed in my bedroom and I keep one in my office. You never know when I need a hook and tapestry needle, stat!
Let me point out that I did NOT pull any hooks or other tools from any of my cases. That’s how they are permanently loaded. I don’t know if I should feel proud of myself for always being ready for any and all crochet needs or if I should be ashamed of myself for having more hooks (and scissors and tapestry needles) than I could ever really use. I’ll let you be the judge. 🙂
