    MeToo! is right. Crochet is almost always bulkier than knitting, and if you're looking for a thin sock to crochet, I think you're looking for something that is non-existent. It might be possible to...

    So true, MeToo! I've bought a yarn from Herrschners, Sweetie Pie, that claims to be a DK weight. I like the yarn, but it really is a sport weight. Most of the time it's just best to work with one...

    Thank you so much, Spoula. The original designer's pattern was called Charlie the Cat, and hers definitely looks like a boy. The girl I made the cat for didn't designate a boy or girl, so I chose....

    I Took a Little Detour

    After my last post I said that I was going to start the black cat. Well, that was kind of true. But first I decided to take a break and crochet the Cuddle Me Bear from Amigurumi Today. That bear...

    I can use a Bates hook. One time I needed a size E and that was all that Joann's had so I bought it. I've used it, but it's not my favorite. If they had longer shafts, maybe I'd like them better.

    The cushioned handles are nice, but you're right - the manufacturers cover some of the shaft with the cushion. The only one that finally figured this out was Addi. First they made the Swing hook with...

    I've always preferred Boye because they have a much longer shaft than the Bates hooks. I'm very dependent on the shaft to make my stitches even (guess it was the way I was taught). The bottom line is...

    Aluminum hooks start with size B 2.25mm; as you go up the alphabet, the hook goes up in size. Anything less than 2.25mm are steel. Steel hooks are numbered, and the larger the number the smaller the...

    Hi Spoula!
    It's not unusual that as we age (like me!), either the arthritis or the eyes prevent us from using the steel hooks - the stitches are just so small! But I started having issues with...

    Yes, the stainless steel ones (all silver, no colored) are hard on your hands and wrists. If I ever go back to doing lace I'll be sure to get one with a soft cushioned handle. But in my experience,...
