Well, I bought myself this lovely bamboo crochet hook, because I keep hearing wonderful things about them. Nope. I don't like it. It sticks to the yarn, or whatever you call it. I had a hard time dragging the hook, or dragging the yarn along the hook, and it really slowed my crocheting down. I got this far before I had to toss that thing back in the bag I keep my hooks in, and grab an aluminum hook. Well, heck. That thing was what, eight, twelve bucks? Too much. It was definitely a splurge. I may try it again later, but I don't know. Do y'all use these hooks? What do you think of them?
