My New & Beautiful Chophook: made by Jimbo

Feast your eyes on my newest Jimbo acquisition... one of his very neat "chophooks".

If you are not familiar with Jimbo's work... visit http://www.jimbosfrontporch.blogspot.com/.

He makes very beautiful and functional crochet hooks; and auctions them off on his blog. I don't know if he still does special orders... but he made a hook for me (quite a while back) to fit my crazy grip.... i sent him pics of me crocheting... and i have to say, it is the most comfortable hook i own! Now with the chophook, i am "mama" to 4 Jimbo hooks!

He does the chophooks to raise money to help find a cure for Friedreich's Ataxia ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Friedreich's_ataxia ), which is an inherited disesase that affects the nervous system.

Here is his blog post about it: http://www.blogger.com/post-edit.g?blogID=34291453&postID=3018539839512396579.

All he asks is a minimum of $10 to the organization (you can even do it via his blog), and he will send you one of these really cool hooks.
