By Hook or By Crook: a saying that means “by any means necessary”. As in, by hook or by crook I will finish these g-loves tonight… Or by hook or by crook that was a great episode of Walking Dead… Or by hook or by crook I should get off to bed!
And in case ya didn’t get it, by hook = how crochet items are made, i.e. with a hook. So there, now you know!
