The only thing I don't like about the thread is the impression it leaves in my fingers. I think I need to find some sort of leather strap to put around my pinkie and pointer finger or something so it will stop doing that.
Thanks for the comments!
When I hook with "irritating" yarn or thread, I go buy some of that bandage tape (looks like a loooooooooooooooong bandaid on a spool) and wrap it around my fingers. It's cushiony enough that it can still be held tight without digging into me
