New Crochet Hooks

I haven't talked about it much, but I have a definite preference when it comes to crochet hooks.  My absolute favorite hook is a Susan Bates In-Line hook, size I.  It's the top hook in the above photo.  I've used it so much, the color is worn off in places.  I have 2 of this type of hook, and have had them since I was a kid.  I learned to crochet with the favorite I hook.
I found this great photo that explains the difference between the two hook styles.  And this blog (Crochet Cabana) also has other great information about hooks.  You can find it by clicking here.   
But, back to the new hooks.  I was at Hobby Lobby last Friday to pick up a set of knitting needles and guess what I found.  A whole set of Susan Bates In-Line hooks.  So what did I do?  I bought it!!!  Yep, I proud owner of 5 more of my favorite kind of hooks!  I'm a LUCKY GIRL!!!


  1. It is funny how we crocheters all have a preference. I like boye hooks for working my doilies but there are a few stitches that I will use a bates hook. Blessings
