Now, if you remember... over a year ago (I can not believe I have been dreaming of this day for so long), I casually mentioned that I wanted a Susan Bates crochet hook. I even posted a thread on a TradeMe message board asking all of New Zealand if they knew where to get them. It turns out there were a couple of sites I hadn't even thought of (Ebay being one of them - duh).
I was expecting a 6 week-ish time frame, hoping they would arrive before this Christmas. Instead, it took 6 DAYS!

I was ecstatic! The first person to use one of them was a dear friend of mine, Amy from On a Crafty Adventure. I was SO happy and excited to be able to share them.

They're pretty colours and they're alluminium, and they are lovely. My most favourite gift to me ever (until I remember my sewing machine or something else crafty, or that new comfy bra...).
