Otherwise if you have a brooch with a hook shaped curl in it, that would work too. I got one of Andrea's pretty silver decorative knitting pins because I forget to take my pin off and am tired of people asking if I'm going fishing.
I've been using a crochet hook with an ergonomic fat handle on it lately but I used to stick the hook in a handy compartment under the front of my shirt. More than once I got back from shopping and realized I'd taken it with me. I don't think my shirt always hid it and I've wondered what anyone who might have noticed it thought.
Good ideas. I'm not much for jewelry but will figure out something to try. If I like it I bet I'll get something nice to use.
I should never overestimate my basic arithmetic skills.
