Crochet hooks

Post by crazypianolady » 25 Jan 2012, 20:54

I thought I might treat myself to some new, ergonomically shaped crochet hooks on account of mine being old, straight and not comfy for lots of use. (Some of them were 29p from Littlewoods! :lol: ) I found several makes including this one (which caught my eye, being pink)

HOW MUCH???? :shock:

for that price I'd expect them to crochet by themselves!

What makes them so special as to ask that price?

That's a crazy price....maybe they put the . (decimal point) in the wrong place! :roll:

That's a very dangerous site! Far too many goodies! :lol:

Both the Clover and the Prym ones look reasonable, I'll have to raid what 's left in my piggy bank! :)

Do you use stuff from there, JD? (Do you crochet a lot?)

I crochet a fair bit and have used this site before. I like bamboo crochet hooks, I haven't tried the ergonomic ones.
