Though I never met my mom’s mother (she passed away in 1950), I cherish these crochet hooks that were once hers. Not sure how this mom of eleven children found time but I know she enjoyed working with her hands. I still have a few tiny pieces she created using these hooks.
The crocheted collar in the photos is a piece done by my mom when she was first married in the 1945.
She was taught by my grandmother using these hooks and went on to perfect her skill by making innumerable hats, sweaters, booties, doilies and other decorative items for her family and home.
I used one of these hooks to crochet tiny hearts for Valentine’s Day.
