soooo i'm finally posting my crochet hook book. (it was done sometime in late november...) i made 3 to match the knitting needle rolls i made (check out the knitting needle/crochet hook roll along if interested) but wrapped them up for xmas before i remembered to take pics. doh! this one however i made for a friend an hr and a half away so i didn't end up wrapping it with all the other family gifts. anywho, this is my own design. i just measured the height of the hooks basically, doubled it, and added an inch or so and then for the smaller hooks, made a .5 inch pocket and the larger ones a 1 inch pocket. the only problem is it doesn't fit sizes m, n or p. i think it just barely fits l. i didn't realize as the sizes got larger, the hooks got taller. so thats something i'd change for my next one. and without ANY further ado...

the whole thing

Great Job!!!  Do you have a tut for that? I'm learning to sew and need easy projects and I tend to take on too much and then become discouraged.

thanx everyone! i can write up a tute, if you don't mind that it won't have pictures, just dimensions and instructions. and also, i have no idea what the fabric is called but i emailed the fabric store where i got it from and if they know, i'll letcha know Smiley btw, i got the fabric from fields fabrics. they have a website fieldsfabrics.com and they have a flat rate fee of $6 for s&h. plus a huge selection! their online store doesn't offer near as much as the actual one though Sad but it still is awesome!
