    Just started crocheting after about 20 years and having a blast! Started with hats for Christmas gifts and now I'm hooked again.

  1. I'm really having problems with my hands cramping up when I crochet and the skinny hooks just make it worse. I found an ergonomic hook at Michael's that worked quite well, but it had a bates head on it and I hate those!!! So, back to the drawing board. I ordered a Meno Trigger Hook http://home.roadrunner.com/~meno/ and it seems great - a hook embedded in a piece of wood that looks like the stock of a rifle. Interesting.... But at $36 each, I can't afford to get one for each size of hook. So.... on to a new project.... Making my own hooks using Polymer Clay. I found a youtube video showing how, and I'm going to model it on the Meno hook plus some changes that I think will make it even better. We'll see how that goes!!!!! Anyone with experience doing this? Is Polymer Clay Strong enough? Does it withstand being dropped at all? I'll keep my website updated with my progress. First thing is to get a toaster oven. No way am I going to bake something chemical in my "food" oven!
  2. What a great forum! I'm joining you from Victoria, BC. I just started crocheting again after learning as a teenager. I made hats for the whole family for Christmas and am moving on to sweaters and amigurimi.
