Hook Hunt

I need some decent crochet hooks. A set, preferably, as I only have a few left – they seem to just disappear, for some reason. Ooh, I’ve been meaning to tell you about our Borrower. There’s one that lives somewhere near our couch where I like to sit in the evening. We’ve lost whole toys near it (and I ain’t talking McDonald’s Happy Meal size stuff here, either). Anyway, it likes buttons and unopened balls of yarn. Knitting needles, not so much, but it must EAT crochet hooks.

So, I’m having a look around to see what’s available in my price range. I have KnitPro Symfonie needles, and I do like to have everything matching, so maybe some of these from cafeknit?

I think with hooks, I really need to go down below a 3mm though, so I better go metal. 

I also want rounded ends as I once gave myself a blister on the palm of my hand with a real cheapie.

On the other hand, I really only use them for edgings, so I don’t need to go overboard on luxury – rules out the lantern moons!

the-ultimate-crochet-hook-review reckons I need an in-line, pointy hook with a rest.

I’m gonna go hunting offline methinks. In the meantime, I might make do with one clover soft touch to try it out… in a 3mm or smaller, I think, since I’m working with 4ply a lot at the mo.

Open to suggestions though! Leave a comment!
