It’s that time of year when we all start thinking about gifts for others – and for ourselves – so I’m sharing a series of gift guides for crocheters. I’ve shared 10 yarn clubs and community supported agriculture projects that are accepting new members/shareholders for 2015, 11 handmade crochet stitch markers sets, and 10 awesome crochet books (and 2 subscriptions). Today, I’m sharing 10 unique crochet hooks (and crochet hook handles).
I think every crocheter knows you can never have enough hooks. Your favorite size may be partway through a project at any given moment. These hooks, available for sale on Etsy, have the added benefit of being interesting conversation pieces, guaranteed to create a buzz at your next crochet meet up!
