crochet hooks - any recommendations?
« on: August 24, 2017, 22:57:08 PM »
I'm looking to buy myself a set of 'fancy' hooks, I'm using some basic aluminium hooks and have been using them for years. I quite like them as I can roll the hook, but they are a bit boring and the tips have become damaged, I have tried the knit pro waves and knitpros wooden hooks but don't like them as much as the aluminium ones, could anybody recommend something for me with lovely sparkly colours and you know girly :) I know I could just buy more cheap ones but with the amount of time I spend crocheting, I'd love something nice.
Thanks

I don't crochet myself, but I have used this craft shop and absolutely love it!  I highly recommend  :)

I bought a lovely set of posh Tulip hooks last year, with my birthday money.  This is the set I got, but I paid around £70 for mine, you need to shop around.
