Bamboo v's Metal crochet hook

Recommended Posts

I got mine from The Wool Shop online store in Ireland but if you search "soft touch" crochet hooks into places like Amazon or EBay (sorry if not supposed to mention them!) you should get loads of hits. And places like Purple Linda Crafts have them too. Mine are Prym but I understand they've changed their manufacturer and the ones I have can be difficult to find. The clover ones are good too but the handles are flatter but still soft :D

This sounds interesting..(bamboo crotchet hooks)????.I have been able to crotchet since the age of 5 years....many decades ago, so have made many things, only using plastic or metal hooks.....I wonder about bamboo as yes I reckon with arthritis they could be kinder to the fingers, so may have a look around to see if I can buy one...mind you at the moment I am well behind with other crafts and have not yet started my Christmas cards, so with sewing, (quilting mainly at the moment) and paper crafts etc. have quite a long list of must dos....the priority should be the hand bag I have materials for and clasps etc. for a Christmas pressie for someone special in the family...where does all the time go as I should have loads of spare hours. My other half says he reckons I waste my time coming on here, but I like to see the feedback on ideas and give out tips if I can on the many crafts I have been involved with over the  years, so shall see if I can be more structured with my time.(Howlong that will last)?????who knows...

  and they are great.  No more feeling odd when swapping from one size hook to another as all the handles are the same size ;-)  There are loads of types to choose from even just on Ebay xxx
