Clover Reflections crochet hook sets

| No Comments

When I heard about the Clover Reflections crochet hook sets - colorful acrylic resin and elastomer with the ergonomic Soft Touch-style handles, I just had to have 'em! So I bought 'em on eBay!

There are 2 sets: small and large; both include a clear acrylic methacrylic resin case for storing the hooks. The case is round, however, which makes it very likely to roll off a table - it would have been better to leave one flat edge.

The small set includes G, H, and J crochet hooks (4 mm, 5 mm, 6 mm). The large set includes K, L, N (6.5 mm, 8 mm, 10 mm).

I'm de-stashing! I have way too many patterns in my stash/collection and cannot possibly make even one item from each. I've decided to not continue listing items with Etsy since Etsy is really meant for selling hand-made items.

So, I spent a majority of today creating a listing of all items, including photos and a description. Go to the list of crochet patterns, leaflets, books I am de-stashing [UPDATED March 5, 2008!]. For now, items that had been listed in my Etsy shop are still there - they are also included in the new For Sale list.

These hard to find and/or out of print patterns are now available:

If you have questions about any of these items, please leave a comment on this post - thank you!

[Latest update about what I'm de-stashing!, 7:45pm, June 16, 2007]

These crochet patterns were added Monday evening to my shop at Etsy - check the shop listings to see what's now available:

  • Thoroughly Modern Grannies
  • Baby Afghans 3 to Knit and Crochet
  • Serape Sweater
  • Springtime Mobile - Sunny Kitchen Designs
  • Annies Mile A Minute Baby Afghans, Annies Attic

[Latest update about what I'm de-stashing!, 7:45pm, June 16, 2007]

I'm de-stashing! I decided to sell some of the crochet patterns and crochet pattern books I have in my collection! See my listings at:

There are more items to be listed - here's what's there right now (check the shop to see what's still available):

  • Award-Winning Afghans, Annies Attic - I made the Cathedral Rose Window Afghan and love how it turned out!
  • Piano Afghan
  • Native American Afghan and Pillows
  • Kountry Kittens - set of 7
  • Indian Snow Afghan
  • New Crochet Basics with Round Ripple Baby Afghan
  • Playtime Puppets

At first I was going to create a blog to list the items and link to PayPal, then I was going to use eBay. Etsy was recommended by someone over PayPal while I was blog surfing, so I gave it a try - and it is MUCH more straightforward (easier!) to use than eBay!

Please checkout the listings in my Etsy Shop to see if there's something you want to buy! Leave a comment here if you have questions! THANK YOU!

I'm also very attracted to blankets made with lots of colors - like granny squares, motifs, "scrap", ripples, and stripes!
