9 Piece White Plastic Handled Crochet Hook Set Review

Hello again! Once again I've been shopping for crochet hooks at Crochet Creations. I really think I may have a bit of a problem...:-). My new set is a 9 piece white plastic crochet hook set. These hooks are lightweight, but strong, and come in sizes ranging from 3mm to 12mm. That is plenty of variety to crochet up lots of projects.

These hooks surprised me with how durable they are. Some plastic hooks are brittle and break easily. These have stood the test of double yarn and lots of use. They are smooth and well balanced, so for under $8 they are a great deal.

I think these hooks would be perfect for teaching crochet, especially for kids. Also they would be good for travelling since you can sometimes run into issues trying to take metal hooks onto a plane.

10 Piece Soft Handled Crochet Hooks with Case Review

Hello again dear readers! I've been on a crochet hook buying spree! The other day I received my brand new Bag Set of 10 Aluminum Multi-Color Plastic Handle Hook Set with Case from Crochet Creation. What caught my eye was the pretty case and the pastel handles. You all know how I am about color, well I couldn't resist. I ordered them and got them in about three weeks.

The case is well made and has a nice sturdy snap to keep it closed and keep everything corralled. Inside the hooks sit in a sectioned mesh insert and there is a convenient plastic flap which prevents the hooks from slipping out of the case. Everything rolls up and snaps so your hooks stay safe and secure. 

The hooks themselves are very well made with soft plastic handles. The hooks heads are tapered, my favorite type, and seated securely into the handles. Sizes range from 2mm to 6mm, about a C to a J. I was impressed with how balanced the hooks feel in my hand. The hooks would be suitable for pencil or knife holds, and since they are soft they may help with people who have trouble holding traditional hooks.

Once again I am very happy with what I have received from Crochet Creation. For under $10 you get 10 hooks and an attractive case. What a steal! Crochet Creations ships to all 50 states of the US, the UK, and Australia.

Colorful Bending Spoon Handle Crochet Hook Set Review

Hello dear readers! I apologize for being absent lately. I did a stint in the hospital and then had to go to rehab for physical therapy. Then I came home and I've been trying to get my strength back. I do believe I'm on the mend, so you'll be seeing more of me in the near future.

The other day I received my Colorful Bending Spoon Handle Crochet Set of hooks. What makes these crochet hooks so special? Not only are they pretty (I'm a sucker for pretty), but they have bending spoon handles. The handles are nice and thick and have soft rubber handles which conform to your hand as you crochet.

I tried both the pencil and knife hold and found them comfortable for both types of holds. The sizes range from 2.5mm to 6mm which comes out to just a bit smaller than a C size hook to a J size hook. The tips are tapered like Boye hooks, which are my favorite types of tips, and the hook is seated securely into the handle. At under $10 they are a steal. I looked up the Addi Swing hooks and just one hook costs more than the entire set sold by Crochet Creation.

So another winner for Crochet Creation! I can't wait to use these hooks to crochet up some things for my grandbabies who are due in January and March. Hop on over to Crochet Creation and use coupon code katscrochet to receive 15% off your entire order excluding shipping.

Until next time, take care and keep on hooking!
