Update - my opinion
I finally got to use the one I bought. I've been sock knitting again the last few days and having this tiny hook to fix my mistakes has been an absolute DREAM! I hope others are enjoying them just as much.

I have a full set of Addi hooks and I like the smoothness of the hooks very much. The only drawback I have is my hands are small and I think the plastic handles could be a few millimeters closer toward the hook for me. So even though I paid a lot of money for the set I will look at Clover soft touch hooks . I have Crochet lites and I have found my arm and hand ache less when I use them. I had some Boyes I got from a pen pal years ago and have loved them totally but find I am needing a different handle shape to alleviate my pain.

With four children, (14, 12, 9 & 9 YO's) I've come to the conclusion that the doll dress that covers the TP [is in] need [of] an electronic update. I've considered taking the voice box out of an old Woody doll (Toy Story) and adding a sensor [and delay to activate] after the [spare roll] is removed.

Can you imagine the doll suddenly saying, "Fly like the wind, Bull-eye!" [Or "There's a snake in my boot!" ]


Perhaps then they will remember to refill the TP supply?

(i guess this smiley should be falling off a *different* kind of chair, though )

As a mom with four children (similar ages, but my youngest is 5) I can relate~ I love this idea! We do have more than one toy story Woody lol!
