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.

“Hook my some skeins, brother.”
(I’m not sure what they’re saying most of the time.)

There was a request over on Ravelry for this doodle during an inline discussion on hooks. By the way, very informative! I modified it a bit, but take no credit for it at all. I usually refrain from doing request as I got my own lone hooker thing going, but kudos to Sarah, good one my crafty cohert. Good one, indeed. And just so you know, she’s MsBusyfingers on Rav. Oh la la, like that name! Obviously, I don’t feel comfortable with putting this in the store and Sarah if you message me, I would be happy to send it to you. Let me know!
I did end up doodling these dudes below, Inline in a Line, (I’m going to get this tote. Sorry, I’m corny and simple) because I was on a roll last night and I’ve been needing to catch up. Sitting on quite a few sketches and updating the store as well. Working on projects and using up ink. Getting it done!

Please do not stand so close to me so that I can smell, physically see, and perhaps even be repulsively sprayed with the stale remnants of your last night’s dinner. Do not embrace me, you are not my grandmother. Holding hands. Out of the question. Back up. Over there. A little further. Further.

I turn up the Skinny Puppy and dream of my future craft band/gang/crew, Skeinny Puppy. I have it all planned, due to my anal retentive nature. Then the thought of people and being in public and socializing kind of freaks me out (by “kind of”, I mean “completely”) so I check all the locks, huddle up in my crafty corner alone, and resume my normal breathing pattern. It may seem far fetched, but a hook can dabble in the common activity of “dreaming”. Skeinny Puppy would be intense. Mega intense.
I can’t show most of their videos for fear of someone possibly loosing their breakfast onto their keyboard, blowing up their computer, and blaming me. It happens.

Nothing but! The innards of the pure building blocks of a hardcore hooker. Get with it.

Hey. Words do hurt. [Tear. Sniffle] That was so uncalled for, but I know you’re not going to let him clown you like that?!

In hooker news, tunisian crochet has been the choice of buzz words this week. You can learn about this knit-equse not knitting, kind of like but sorta not really, mixed offspring technique here, but warning: you will probably need to explain yourself amongst skeptical hooker coherts. Read and know your craft peoples. Keep your hesitants as bay, I’ve checked ahead, it’s legit, but those double hooks are freaky though.

Well, hello there. What hooker has two thumbs and is on the Craft blog today? Yep, that’s right, this Hooker. Word. Consider the retainer swallowed and the inhaler empty. The lack of oxygen has lead to four new doodles today and if you are new here feel free to take the mic and introduce yourself: “I am ____. I am a hooker and have been hooking for ____.” Any other info about your love of fried twinkies or long romantic waits in line at the craft shop is all up to you. Welcome to Hooktopia! Thanks for stopping by, HOOKS UNITE! HOOKS UP! Also thanks Halie and again, thanks Craft.
