Tools of the Trade--Late

I thought I'd post this on Tuesday for maximum alliteration value. Alas, the trade winds were blowing a little slow while the west wind was blowing us out of house and home.

Okay, guess what this is:Medical device? Tools on the Space Shuttle? Torture probe? Creature from the Black Lagoon?

No, it's my newest find: the light up crochet hook. Okay, it sounds totally cheesy and stupid and a complete waste of money. But something compelled me that I just had to get one and try it. I crochet a lot in the car on those looooooong, frequent trips across the state for medical appointments. (Got one next week for Sparkle.) I figured this would help for the early morning and late night hours when the light is less than optimal.

I was ready for it to be a total failure but.....drum roll please....I love it! It's awesome. It's particularly perfect (alliteration is everything to me) when working with dark yarns--browns, blacks.

I rate this crochet hook (purchased at Hobby Lobby for less than $6) a Totally Terrific.

How neat! They look like those glow wands my kids get at the circus! :)
