One of the fun things about doing an online craft project like the Granny Square Sampler Afghan Project is getting to know some of the other crafty bloggers out there. Polka Dot Cottage is one such new favorite I discovered while working my way through learning to crochet. I was excited to see last week that she has reintroduced her line of custom handcrafted crochet hooks.
Lisa makes these hooks to order, so you can pick your hook size, preferred brand and the design for the handle. She currently has nine pretty patterns available.
The handles can be ordered with or without a flat thumb rest. A lot of people have commented how the shape of these hooks is actually more comfortable to work with than regular hooks and helps if you experience joint pain while crocheting.
Yes, these cost a little more than running to your nearest Jo-Ann or Michael’s for a hook, but when you craft as much as I do, there is nothing better than having beautiful, well-made tools. Plus supporting another crafter only helps the community as a whole.
***Disclaimer: We were not reimbursed in anyway to talk about these products. We just believe in supporting other crafters.
