Sharp Crochet Hook review and giveaway

I am really excited to share this week's giveaway with you!  


When I was pregnant with Sawyer a dear friend from back home sent me a little baby gift.  My favorite items were a few flannel burp cloths with crocheted edges.  I wasn't much of a hooker back then so making my own didn't even cross my mind.  I loved those burp cloths!  I used them with both boys and aside from a little fading from being washed a million times LOVED so much they still look great and still wipe many noses.  When I was pregnant with Dex I really wanted a few more but didn't have a way to hemstitch the edge and wasn't willing to prepunch them or shove a skinny hook through.  Have you ever tried that?  It is hard!  The Sharp Crochet Hook makes it easy breezy!  Instead of the crochet hook being rounded it's super pointy, sharp to be exact!  You just poke it right through the fabric!


Up until a few months ago I had never heard of the Sharp Crochet Hook.  {yes, sometimes I wonder if I do live under a rock.  I blame it on my life being consumed with small children}  Have you??  I am sure you have!  If you haven't you need to check this out!  It is awesome!  When I heard about it I knew I had to have one!!  I contacted Jessica (owner and creator of Sharp Crochet Hook) and asked her if she'd be interested in a little review/giveaway action.  I was so stoked when she said yes! I am new to asking people if they want to do giveaways so I am still a little nervous they'll tell me to F off ;)  


A little peak at what I did with it.  I made a few burp cloths for a cousin due to have her baby girl any day now {are you listening baby G??  That's right...it's time!  Get moving girl!}  The first one I just wanted to get a feel for it so I did a simple scallop edge, no pattern needed.  The next one I used the Picot Fan pattern in the Sharp Crochet Hook pattern book and LOVED it!  It was super cute!  


and because my baby girl is now 13 and I am surrounded by boy stuff I decided to trim a few pair of socks (both patterns from the Sharp Hook book) for baby G as well.  


I bought this apron from Canton Trade Days (First Monday for you locals) a few months back.  It was WAY too long and super frumpy but it was $2.  You can't go wrong for $2.  I altered it to be shorter (like 10" shorter, seriously.) and added the crochet at the bottom.  Much less frumpy!

Cute right?!?!

I am also working on a few tea towels but they aren't quite ready!  I'll have to show you my progress later!  I have so many cute ideas!  I was thinking trim on a onesie?  Fancy up a pair of cut off jeans?  I am desperate to do a few pillowcases BUT I am in the process of redoing my room and have no clue what color/style/pattern I am going to do. 

 I think it goes without saying that I love this little hook!  I did find that it is a little hard to poke through more than 3 layers of flannel but seriously that is pretty thick!  I tried to go through 4 layers and while it was possible it was pretty tough and slow going.  I stuck with 2 layers of flannel and it slid right through! Sharp Crochet Hook has my vote!  Love it! 

Here are a few ideas for inspiration from the Sharp Crochet Hook's blog

adorable edge on a baby blanket!  Love this!  May have to make one for my nephew!

Great for you scrapbookers and card makers!  how freaking cheery is this?!?!

also love this!!  Jazz up a cheap tank or Tshirt!  Heller!  Adorable!
