Oh wow, I'm next!! Ok, I'll my engines revved. I've already got my yarn and am ready to go, can't wait. The hook is heading to Buffalo at the best time of the year to live here so I think it will be spending sometime out on my patio watching the birds at the feeder and enjoying the sun (with out SPF on, OF COURSE).

Jamie - I hear ya. :( I'm just before you .. that seems like a lonnnng time to wait.

 

But...

 

When the journal does get to us... think of all the lovely things that will be written in it (no pressure girls! :lol ). And that HOOK :hook will be all warmed up. Just THINK of the wonderful squares we will make!!!

 

Would it be weird for the participants to place a swatch of yarn that they used in the journal? :yarn I think it would be cool to see (and feel) what others have used. :yes Just a thought. (I don't want to complicate matters.)

 

:hug hugs to Jimmie Lu for coordinating all of this.

 

I am EXCITED!!! :cheer

If I figured correctly, I'd be due to get the hook around the beginning of August. Only problem is we are moving into a new place the first week of August. Is there any way of making mine a little further down the list or a little closer? I would hate for A)it to get lost in the mail with my mail being forwarded around that time and B)for it to get lost in the shuffle with all my moving boxes. If there's no way to move me on the list then let me know and I'll have it sent to me at work instead! THANKS!

donnalyn I will not put your address in the package and when the hook is getting close to you we will get the correct address and the person before you will have to PM me to get the address. the only other option is for me to bump you to last and then it gets sent to me after you?

Your choice

Oh geez! I would hate to wait til the end! UGH! Yeah it sounds good to not put my addy in the package yet. When it's getting close, just shoot me a PM and I'll be able to tell you where it needs to get sent! THANKS! :)

ARE YOU READY!!!!!!

The hook will be leaving my house on Sat. Yipee!!!

The first place it is headed is beautiful New York state (I hope its nice there this time of year). Catlizg are you all ready for some company? I wish I was being squeezed into an envalope and mailed to everyone here Id love to spend a week crocheting with all of you. But you probably would get sick of my incessive crocheting and throw me out by the week end. lol So lets get hookin for heart disease!!!

So, when we're figuring out about when to plan for the hook's arrival, does it make sense to figure about a week per person ahead of you on the list? Or longer? As far as I can tell, it's not due to me any sooner than the end of June, so I'll be back from travel, no problem. I'm coming back on the 15th of June.

 

But, if I've miscalculated, and the hook is due here before I return, then I guess you'd better skip me and maybe Jimmie Lu can fit me in at the end? Hopefully that won't happen!

Patricia your calculations seem good to me but I will do the same with your address as another or 2 and have the person ahead of you PM me for your address so we can make sure you have your guest room all ready for Mr. Hook!

That sounds great - much relieves my mind that the hook won't sit and wait in case everybody ahead of me is lightning fast..... :D

 

I recall seeing that the source of many of our yarns is Turkey. Wouldn't it be neat if I can find something special (acrylic, of course) on my trip to use with Jimbo's very special hook when it's my turn? :c9

The hook is warming up in WNY as we speak - it's been in the high 90's for the last 3 days here, quite odd for this time of year, but it sure beats snow. I've been looking for the original post on the Travelin' Hook, wondering just what to add to the journal. I decided to add a piece of my yarn as someone suggested on one of the posts, and to write a little bit about why I crochet and chose to do this project. Maybe that will be of interest to whomever is the lucky recipient of our work? I'm also in the bookmark swap and I'll tell ya, it's darn hard to put down this Jimbo hook to pick up a steel and work on the thread. Sigh, a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.
