I just came across an old wooden crochet hook, size K, with the name "Nuns" on the side. It must have belonged to my grandmother. Are you familiar with this brand? And do you know when it might have been made?

Thank you for the wonderful question! You have led me on a fun quest to learn more about your grandmother's crochet hook! I have never seen a Nun's hook in person, so I was very intrigued!

Your crochet hook is stamped with the letter "K;" this means that the hook was created for American use, regardless of where it was made. If it were crafted for European use, it would have been stamped with a metric size. Unfortunately I am not able to figure out when -- or where -- your grandmothers Nun's crochet hook was created. Readers, do you know more information about the Nun's Crochet Hooks? If so, do tell! :)
