It seems that this adorable plush easy chair is always by my side. Scissors can slip behind the heart pillow for safe storage, and the seat even raises for secret storage ! My trusty embroidery needle is always poking up from the cushion, ready for the many times a day I need to use it. These are the tools of my hobby.
I use a few different crochet hooks on a regular basis, but I would have to say the 2.00 mm size is my most utilized. I don't go smaller than that, so 2.75 and 3.00 mm are the next sizes most in use. When I crochet with the larger needles it feels awkward at first, but with some time I get used to the new feeling. These pansy appliques were made with a 2.75 mm needle. I also use a hook grip, that's why the needle has the blue cover on it.
Does anyone know a quality crochet hook maker? Leave me a comment if you do. I'd love to get some handmade hooks to give as gifts in 2009.
