So I started out with the tunisian stitch a little while ago to do some colorwork, but all I have for a hook is the kind that's about 12" long with a stopper on the end, which really limits what I can do with it. I was looking at getting a set with cables, and I was wondering if anyone had any recommendations. I usually use bamboo or other wood hooks, the only time I use metal is when I am using the teeny tiny ones for snowflakes and such. I was looking at a set of bamboo hooks with cables on ebay, like this set
Has anyone used this type before with the bamboo hook and the plastic tube? Did your yarn slide over the plastic ok? I just find the metal hooks so heavy, especially when I like to crochet for hours at a time. Any advice/recommendations are appreciated.
