Crochet hooks, knitting needles, yarn winders, umbrella swift, project bags: these are some of the tools of my trade. Over the years, I have sampled so many of each. Finding the perfect crochet hook has been a quest of mine for quite a while now. I have tried many, but always resort back to my original aluminum hooks. First, because they are highly polished, smooth and move quickly over the yarn. Second, they are light. Third, the throat maintains the same diameter and doesn't get stuck in the loop of a stitch during the motion of "yarn-over-hook".
I had the distinct pleasure of sharing my experience with the lovely people at Lantern Moon when they were in the development stages of their new line of crochet hooks.
Last month I received a very exciting package in the mail: an entire set of handcrafted, rosewood crochet hooks by Lantern Moon in a beautiful, silk case. The sizes range from C/3 (3.25mm) to N (10mm).
First of all, they are polished and very smooth. The hook glides over my stitches quickly and easily. Second, they are very light. Third, they have a unified diameter throughout the throat. I never get held up or stuck during the stitching. And lastly, they are beautiful!!!
