You all know I love crochet hooks, and trying new hooks is always a treat. Last week I got to try Stitchin Stacy's Hooks - and I even get to give one away!
Stacy and her husband Chris handmake wooden crochet hooks in their barn in eastern Iowa. Here are a couple of videos they've made to show how it's done!

The Finished Hooks:
Isn't it fantastic!? That's real craftsmanship!
I got a chance to try out the I hooks in Flamebox Elder and Bocote, and they are both crazy smooth, light, warm, and fun to use! And Stacy herself is super nice, and a designer with patterns on Craftsy. So she knows what makes a good hook! You can follow the Stitchin Stacy's Crochet and More Facebook page too.
Now for the hard part... I have to give one of them away! They are both gorgeous, and both size I, 5.5mm. So for this giveaway, it's winner's choice! Here's a bit about the two woods to help you decide:
Hook 1: Flamebox Elder - It's a type of maple planted by early settlers for shade. It's a great wood for turning and it's the type used for producing maple syrup (yummy!). Colors are reddish/pinkish with some gray lines.
Hook 2: Bocote - This tree grows in Mexico, and reaches 60' tall! This wood is typically used for smaller crafts such as jewelry, boxes, and inlays. The bands of color in this wood can consist of black, cream, yellow, green, or brown.
