Hi! I'm fairly new to crocheting, as well as to this forum, but am not new to fiber. I've been knitting for about 2 years now, and decided to pick up crochet in November, so about 3 months ago. I started with amigurumi, since it meant small projects with quick results and had a blast. I am currently using Clover Takumi Soft Touch hooks, which is so much easier on my hand than the traditional metal ones, but I find my hands still get tired if I'm not careful to take frequent breaks. Recently I bought one ergonomic Crochet Dude aluminum hook from Joann's and I definitely like the feel of them better. I read several reviews of the Etimo Tulip Crochet Hook set (basically this set: http://www.joann.com/caron-tulip-etimo-crochet-hook-set-with-scrissors-sizes-d-e-f-g-7-h-i-j/zprd_10820470a/) and it sounds like something I would really be interested in. The problem is that Amazon and Joann are both sold out and ebay sells it for way more.
Is the hype about the set worth it? Should I wait for them to come out with more? Or should I just suck it up and buy them individually (~$9 a piece), sticking to the sizes I use most often?
Any and all suggestions from those more experienced than I am would be most welcome!
