Hook Monster

I am always looking for better ways to organize and more containers to hold things. Back in November, I made a hook roll to hold some of my crochet hooks, but it didn’t accommodate any hooks larger than size K.

My larger hooks were still looking for a better home than an old wipes container when I came across this hook monster on Ravelry. The idea is from Penelope Senior’s blog, Let’s all get Knitfaced! You can find her instructions here. I followed Penelope’s instructions exactly making the hook case long enough to hold my Q and S hooks. Then I cut a strip of white felt with pinking shears and sewed it to the bottom edge of the mouth for teeth. Last I sewed on two mismatched buttons for the eyes.

I’m not sure who loves this hook monster more, me or my kids. They love to take the hooks out and then “feed” the monster (with lots of noshing and growling, of course). I think the kids will be happy to find out that because of the difference in hook lengths, I am going to make this monster a wife to hold hooks L, M, N and P.
