Tower of Babel Hook Holder

Today I crocheted myself a hook holder for my desk. Prior to seeing this cute little number on this evening I used a coffee mug to hold my crochet hooks. Simple and easy but not very Crochet-ish. So when I saw this Tower of Babel Hook Holder today I knew I wanted to make one for myself.

Digging into the yarn stash, the pumpkin colored Wool of the Andes found its way to the top of the basket so I accepted its direction and found a size 3.5 mm hook. While watching British detective Jack Frost and then the Kennedy Center Awards, I crocheted this little gem. After putting the hooks into, lifting it up to show Ormond and watching the hooks slide out, I decided that a leather bottom would be a better idea. So I went into the scrap leather bag and cut a black circle. I glued it with fabric glue to the bottom and that solved the problem. Today's cute project-finished !~!


  1. What fun! You did a great job - it does look like a tower. :D
    Happy New Year!

  2. Very nice! And I'm glad to see you have a blog. How wonderful.

  3. Love this, I want to make one.
    BTW, If you want to learn my secret for doing the pointy points,

  4. Lynda, that is adorable! I'm stuck on making scarves ... I definitely need to expand my art. Perhaps a Tower of Babel will be next!!
