I have four limited edition Daughter of A Sailor Crochet Hooks up for grabs today! Some of you may remember the beautifully handcrafted extra large crochet hook my father made me a few months ago. Well, since there was such an overflow of interest, I got him to make four more just for you guys! They’re made from red oak and poplar and coated with shellac for an extra smooth finish. They’re each one of a kind and measure 4" around (about 1 ¼" in diameter) which is larger than any hook sold in a craft store (yep, even larger than size Q), so you have so many unique creating possibilities with these beauties that no one else has. They’re $110 each, which includes shipping to anywhere in the world! If you want one, buy one now because there’s only these four and I can’t guarantee there will be more! The sailor has lots of sailing to do this summer afterall. 😉

The first four people to email me get them❤️



From Father to Son with @mileu

(This interview was conducted in Portuguese.)

Luis Mileu (@mileu) got to know his father through photographs. As a professional sailor, his dad spent most of his time traveling around the world. “He would send our family Polaroids and cards from his trips. I think my fascination for photography began back then, while I waited for those photos,” says 42-year-old Luis, who grew up to become a photographer and graphic designer in his native Portugal.

Taking after his father, Luis also now roams the world, documenting his journeys and capturing portraits of people he meets along the way. What once allowed him to get to know his father is now about self-discovery. “Travel is a vital priority in my life. It’s the way I get to know the world, people and myself. It always amazes me how different people can capture the same places in very different ways. The photographer’s perspective changes everything,” Luis observes.

Just like the young boy who held on tight to his father’s words and Polaroids, Luis clings to his travels long after the journey is over. “When I look at a photograph I took two years ago, I’ll remember exactly how I was feeling and actually relive that day through the image. This is one of photography’s great powers.”
