I got mine on Wednesday! OH MY GOODNESS!!! These are the most awesome hooks!! Not only are they truly beautiful...the case is wonderful (I chose a walnut wood one w/green velvet)...but they are soooo smooth with the yarn. They just glide through and he puts a small point at the tip of the hook so you can easily get the hook into the stitches. I love love love them!!! I took the G hook to the courthouse on Thursday (jury duty) and no problems getting through security. My hubby was very impressed and my son loved the box soo much. Honestly...worth every penny!! I did get the set of 5 instead of 6 though so it was slightly less.
I hope your hubby gets them for you kknittinfool!
