|Applewood crochet hook will make a full recovery.|
I know what you're thinking: "What's with the picture, Dee? That's not so romantic!"
Oh, but isn't it??
When you spend 25 years with someone you get to know what pleases them most. I was crushed -absolutely so! - when I opened my project bag and found my Brainsbarn custom crochet hook, crafted out of applewood from our own back yard -- broken! I really love this crochet hook.
Mr Dee saw how distressed I was. He said he, "...could rebuild him ... [he] has the technology..." Yes, cue the theme music from the popular 1970s television show, The Six Million Dollar Man. My hook was broken in half. I put my trust in him and handed the hook over.
Late last night Mr Dee told me I could see my hook, that it will recover from this most unfortunate accident. I was so happy. This man, regardless of the many times he's tripped over my vast yarn stash, or had to push a project aside on the sofa so he could sit down, has been dragged to conferences, and volunteered to appear in a crochet video ... just smiles through it all, knowing it makes me happy. I am thrilled my hook has been repaired. Now that I know he's a skilled crochet hook surgeon, I have a few more patients for him. But that can wait; we have an anniversary to celebrate. :)
