  1. I made myself more handles on my crochet hooks. They aren't fancy but they do the job. I wanted a set with only pink handles and the other one is a purpley and white. Apparently I only own 1 I hook, so I need to get a couple more! This is the only brand I like, with the exception of a few I got at Hobby Lobby.
  2. I think I have an addiction to crochet hooks, I seem to have alot of them! My new "thing" to do with them is putting polymer clay handles on them! These are some of what I've made, there's more that need pictures plus I am making some for gifts.
  3. Hellllllo!!!! I've been crocheting for a few years and I love it!!! It all started by accident. I got my youngest daughter a teach yourself crochet and knitting kit from Walmart. She wasn't too thrilled and the kit sat on the counter for about a week. On a whim I decided to try it and the rest is history. She's now 20 and cringes at the thought or picking up any type of hook.

  5. I have been carrying around two crochet hooks for many years, in the first picture you can see a close up of these hooks. Notice the price on each one..... when do they stamp the price on anything now? My Aunt lived in Alaska and sent to my mother the wale bone hook in the second picture, with it is a walrus bone hook that my sister bought for me when she was in Alaska. And my 'favorite' hook is in the third picture, green handle. Notice that the shaft is all one size and this will keep the loops on the hook all the same size. I once did a doily that had me wrap the thread 6 times and then work off the loops. I recently found a new crochet hook with the same shaft so I now have a second hook, just in case..... he he

  8. Hi! My name is Ivana and I have fallen in love with crochet a few years ago. I am a professor of music in music school, originaly from Croatia but I live and work in Bosnia, I love to make items from books, magazines, but also play and create my own patterns and items based on each stitch I learn. My love for crochet and crocheting still hasn`t faded a bit. Fortunately, I have managed to get all sorts of hooks, from steel ones to tunisian ones. Tunisian hooks were impossible to find here but my friend from Germany has supported my love and has sent me a set of them. I feel great to be a part of this community and hopefuly will contribute in some way. I am pregnant for the second time so I have a lot of time on my hands to play with my favorit threads and hooks, hehe! https://plus.google.com/photos/116995780643205904851/albums/5852122019752598593?authkey=CJWSg-eGmtDrggE Here is a link to a part of my work that has become in a period of 1,5 year since I have started and learned how to crochet. After that time I have paused in taking photos of my work because of the first baby. I have crocheted in every free minute during that time but for my photography sessions there was no space and time. That`s how it is sometimes. You are free to give me some advices anad suggestions or ask questions.

  10. Has anyone tried these hooks? They look pretty nice and I notice they come in sizes larger than 6.0mm, up to 12.0mm. Clover Soft Touch are my current go-to hooks. I've tried Tulip Etimo and while I love the finish and the way they glide through my stitches "like buttah", there's something about the handle or the way they're sized that is not quite comfortable for me. Maybe it's because I have stubby fingers and use pencil grip? IDK, but I'd love to hear an opinion from anyone who's tried the Knitters Pride Waves hooks and how they might compare to Etimo and Soft Touch.

  12. I'm so excited!! Today I was gifted, by surprise, by an older friend at work. He was trying to clear out some items of his mother's who passed away about 5 years ago. He knew I "knitted" (that's what he calls crochet) so he brought me in this small green tin seen at the end. No one else in his family crochets. Inside were these hooks along with 3 other steel Bolyes (made in the USA) sizes 9, 10, 11. I just find them facinating. I've never seen hooks like these. And yep, it doesn't take much to amaze me. Notice the hook at the bottom of the 1st and 2nd pic. It converts, I'm assuming so that the tiny, tiny head is protected when not in use. And of course the metal brass(?) hook. It's a little damaged from looks like an amazing amount of use. As for the green tin, it had a use too. My friend said that his mother would keep her spools of thread in there and feed the end through the hole in top while she 'knitted". I'm going to have to google to find out more about these, but no matter what I find out, they will always be treasured as my first gifted "vintage" hooks. If you have any insight on any of these hooks, please let me know. TFL
  13. I splurged on myself this Christmas(after) and purchased the steel Etimo(Tulip) hook set from Caron. So happy I did! They are longer than regular steel hooks, balanced and a cushion support. I love the case, too. 25% off plus free shipping. That sale was suppose to end in December, but Caron has extended it to end of January.
