Introducing ARNie’s  Cable Stitch Hooks!
  As I was researching and stitching all the different types of cables, braids and plaits, I struggled horribly with knitting cable stitch holders.  Because they are all so thin, they would fall right out of my TC stitches, so would crochet hooks.  
   After several weeks of discussions on design and structure, Lisa & Frank at Twin Birch Products perfected a Tunisian Cable Hook that makes cables so easy to work!  
   Based on MY specifications, these cable stitch hooks are short enough to not be in the way of the main hook, yet large enough in diameter to maintain a proper gauge for working with the larger hooks TC requires.  The pointed tip at the opposite ends makes slipping stitches back onto the long hook very easy.

Introducing ARNie’s  Entrelac Hooks!
  As I was researching and developing my method for working Entrelac, I used a ‘short’ wooden crochet hook.  Knowing the popularity of Entrelac, I thought a specialized hook could be useful for it, as well!
  Based on MY specifications, Frank & Lisa created these Entrelac hooks,  which are shorter than most afghan hooks, but they have a ball on the end to prevent stitches from falling off.  I used these hooks to stitch all of the samples for the Scarves booklet.
