Impossibly Small

I've decided that I'm knitting through my special yarn too fast.

This project should take a while to finish. It's my first time knitting beads into lace.

The crochet hook is my grandmothers. It came to me in her button tin along with her tatting shuttle. I can't tell if the tatting shuttle was ever used but this crochet hook was. The end is so fine it goes through an eye of a bead so it's the right size to crochet thread into lace.

The handle of it is pained red with nail polish. The only reason to mark a tool is to know it's yours. I wonder where she took it to be worried about loosing it among all the other impossibly small hooks.
