I found this quite a while ago and now cannot find source. Well there is a source but it leads nowhere, so if this is familiar to you, let me know and I will give the author due attribute.


I've had a problem with too many projects, and often times I need that hook I was using for an older, hibernating project for a shiny new project. The problem then arises when I go back to the old project, often one without instructions or one where I've gleefully ignored the instructions, and can't remember what hook I was using (and/or found out in shifting it I've accidentally ripped out a bunch of work).

Then it hit me - an idea so simple I can't believe they're not on every store in the country! Maybe because they think people finish one project before they go on to another? (*snort*) Or maybe because it's so simple. Grab a large necklace hook, a piece of thread, and some beads - regular and alphabet - and VOILA!

The necklace clasp goes around the working loop to keep it from unraveling, and the alphabet bead reminds you what hook you are using! You can also use numbers, if you're using steel hooks or one of the 'in-between-the letters' aluminum hooks. Totally simple to quickly slap together a whole set!

I think this is genius and just had to share.
