STRAIGHT FROM HOOKLYN

January 5th, 2012 § 2 Comments

I packed up the yarn and attitude to visit the fam over the holidays. The cold streets, the crabby lone hooks, the corner craft stores…oh, the streets of Hooklyn…so many fond memories…obey crochet craft yarn brooklyn

GRUBBIN’ ON YARN

January 5th, 2012 § 2 Comments

Happy Hookin’ New Year! I’m a back. Sorta. Getting there. Slowly. Really. Getting back in the game after glazed over eyes and sickening holiday merriment. The ear plugs have retired since the Christmas tunes have halted. I did get to hook up the holidays, getting some one and one time with my yarn, and craft away days under covers with coffee mug in hand. I will admit that the horrid weather (50 degrees is cold in Texas, people!) turned already treasured coffee into liquid winter crack.

Hope you got to indulge in a crochet buffet of sorts, hook anything special? receive anything yarnie? 2012 crochet goals? I may be uber late on this, but I just came out of my holiday calorie haze.

Don’t forget Hooktopia, that’s my 2012 goal and it should be for you. Let link the hooker community like some sort of odd, crafty, way cooler than what you recall yearbook.

ALL OF THIS DEER CAN BE YOURS!

I may not be a “people person”, but here is a tip-ola: if you are going to attempt to associate with other persons, it’s a mega bonus if they happen to be some crafty bastards.

Exhibit A: Hola Dear Deer

This doe duo are a pair of sister stitchers who chant “straight lines are for squares” while toiling away at their sewing machines to conjure up business card holders, pouches, totes, and what ever else the fabric (vintage!) so desires. They’ve helped in crafting Obey Crochet yarnbombing kits, proudly sported rub on tattoos (hello hook universe, they are still available!) for the Obey cause, and I am glad to call them homies. AND one of them hooks in her spare time! Quite the pair, quite the pair, indeed.

These dear deers have started out in a crafty Etsyian adventure and have so generously given me a handmade goodie to help a hooker out. You can also follow some deer family escapades here. Did you say FREE?! Yes. Why, yes, I did.

Word on the street is stripes are sexy.

It’s a large, lined canvas tote made with vintage fabric and sturdy enough to stuff with all your hooks and a ton o’ yarn.

FYI, I love me some hookers, but I could have soooo easily kept this. E-A-S-I-L-Y. Instead, because I am super wicked ninja cool (and because I don’t want a hoof to the head from those deer), I went out, bought a butt load o’ yarn, and am giving it to you.

Why would I do this?! Wait, why am I doing this? Oh, yeah, to support the hooker cause, my crafty crusaders. The holidays have folks spending money on things that are un-crochet and in the midst of the madness I am pushing back, bulking your stash up and asking you to get on that amigurumi, granny square, potholder, monster, blanket project you have been putting off. Get hookin’!

HOW DO I WIN AND SPREAD THE LOVE OF HOOK FAR AND WIDE?

Leave a comment and tell me what’s your favorite Obey Crochet Comic so far. You can browse the selection here and here. A winner will be chosen Monday, the 28th, in the morn (I live in Texas!) after the turket slaughtering.

P.S. This blog remains sponsor free, powered by a single hook, a cubicle job, and the crazed love o’ crochet.

P.P.S. If you are disappointed I am not giving away deer, well I guess I can understand that but I heard they poop a lot.

Gracias Hola Dear Deer! Crochet all day, every day.

WINNING MR. HOOK HANDS

November 16th, 2011 § 14 Comments

What the heck is that semi organized two inch binder doing on your desk?!

It contains all of the Obey Crochet drawings, you say?!

And while cleaning and organizing because you live such a wild life style, you found two test prints?! that you don’t want? and want to give away for some awesome hard core hooker out there?

My joy, can not be contained. Not. At. All.

But how, oh how, oh hooky one, do I win this awesome display of hooker pride?! Edward Hook Hands! He’s dreamy.

Leave a comment, tell me your favorite, most awesome breakfast. Why? Because I like breakfast. And because I own this blog and I do what I want. And I want to see if you actually read my mutterings. Mutter.

I will pick two winners Monday morn when I get up. I live in Texas. Good luck. Hooks speed.

BABY, YOU ARE ON MY CHRISTMAS LIST

If you have not tried that lovely six sided hexagon beauty, get wild, make a blanket, perhaps, yes, even a hexagon potholder? You can breathe now. Then you can send me photos and then I can virtually high five you. I’m just sayin’.

HOOKER SUPPLIES & THERE’S NO KIND OF PRIZE LIKE A SURPRISE

"obey crochet" crochet craft hook drawing

All the things I need to survive on a daily basis. This was actually drawn in desperation due to the fact that I forgot my headphones at home this week. Apparently that is grounds for encouraging strangers to start conversations with you. Geez. The rage took over for sometime. I finally got that vein to go back in my forehead. On a sidenote: If you like big totes and you can not lie, look out for a giveaway soon. You like free right? I got you something for Christmas then. I know. I’m awesome. Here is a hint, these crafty lady deers made it.

THANKFUL

Did I mention yarn? Coffee is pretty up there, too. I am mostly thankful that I don’t have to share it. Hey, facts are facts. Deal.
