That is so great!!! Very creative and if it makes using the hook easier, even better!!!

I love my Boye crochet hooks. My blue G hook is my fave.

As for knitting, I am using some Susan Bates hooks and they are good too.

I do not like plastic hooks at all - for some reason, there are little nodes that stick to the yarn and make it fray.

hydeemarie: I don't think I've seen the Clover hooks. Where did you find them? I usually see the Boye or Susan Bates, which are the ones I use and have liked the best.

My favorite crochet hooks are Susan Bates. When I am crocheting the yarn slides off her hooks much smoother than others I have tried.

I got mine at JoAnn Fabrics. They were like 6-7 $. A bit expensive but they are higher quality. They are nice!

hydeemarie: I'll have to look at them next time at at JoAnns. I go there a lot! I don't look at the crochet hooks that often since I already have all the sizes!

I like the Susan Bates hooks the most, I love the way the hook is shaped so that the yarn fits into the hook, when you use susan bates hooks the hook catches the yarn for you. with boye hooks i have to move my hand so much more so that i can grab the yarn with the hook.
does anyone else know what i mean? I hope that makes sense.
