• How This Works

      Short Version

        1) Every Sunday a new crochet Prompt or Challenge will be posted. In addition, a Mission will be posted on the first day of each month, and possibly within any given month.
        2) Copy the Prompt/Challenge/Mission to your own blog with your response then come back here and leave your link in the comments of the appropriate topic so everyone will know where to find it.
        3) If you don't have a blog, why not start one? Or you can just post your response here.
        4) You don't have to participate in every post. Do the ones you want. Backtrack if you wish. 5) If you have any comments about this site and/or suggestions for a prompt/challenge, click on the "Share Your Ideas" tab and use the form to send it.

        For the long-winded version, click the About button.

Prompt: Favorite Hook

It seems that most crocheters feel the same about hooks as they do yarn: You can never have too much of a good thing. Do you own a multitude or just a few? Which out of the hooks you own is your absolute favorite–that one hook you couldn’t live without? What makes that hook so special?

  1. I have lots of hooks.But they are alumnium and steel.I’m in constant search for diferent kinds of hooks.There aren’t eny plastic/wooden/bamboo ones here.Until I find one, I will settle with those that I allready have.

  2. My favourite size is “k”. Its the size I’m most comfortable with, and its the first size I grab for. I have a dark grey Boye hook (size K, of course) which is my favourite hook. Theres not really a story to go with it , its just the first hook I look for when I want to start a project.

  3. I have lots of hooks, but I do have favorites. http://bonniespins.wordpress.com/2007/11/07/hooks-and-more-hooks/

  4. i prefer “f” hooks…but oooh I just got an R tunisian wood hook from Stitch Diva in Oakland…and it’s my NEW FAVORITE FREAKING TOY…soz…LOL…but I made a scarf in 20 min. 🙂 GRIN…It’s awesome.

  5. I have a couple of plastic hooks but I really don’t like them. I find that they “stick” as they go through the yarn. I much prefer metal. My favorite size really depends on the yarn but I like G quite a bit. I always check for new kinds of hooks at the craft store. I may order some bamboo to see how they work, since the small metal can be tiresome on my hands.
