Hello! I recomend the Susan Bates bamboo handled hooks as well for these reasons: aluminum is great to crochet with because the stitches glide easily along it. Stitches tend to stick on wooden or bamboo hooks and it takes longer to crochet with hooks made of this material. However, wooden or bamboo hooks...
I've been wanting to try working with wooden hooks, but I would rather not spend money on something that I might not like. I was hoping that I could get some opinions on your favorite brands and save myself the wasted time and frustration. Any help is greatly appreciated!
