Grandma Eva's Crochet Hooks

Here's Grandma Eva:

I did begin my Ripple with Grandma's hooks, but gave up on that in favor of an old steel size E. I love Grandma's, though:

Are they plastic? Bone? Ivory? I think I vote plastic. But they do evoke something...maybe frivolous needle arts, done leisurely and for aesthetic fulfillment, rather than basic needful things (like socks!).

Here is Ripple. I'm not certain about the colors, but will keep going. In the end maybe it'll be nice. Or not. The surprise of ugly or lovely will be fun. Or not.
