Well ladies, Seeing all of the cute amigurumi and lovely crochet flowers has inspired me.  I bought a crochet hook and yarn today and decided my first project will be an easy peasy scarf.  BUT I bought a g hook and the directions for the scarf say I hook.  Is this a super big deal or can I change it out no problemo?  I appreciate any help. Amy

When you use a smaller or larger hook, it changes the size of the completed project as well as the drape.  So, by using the smaller hook, your stitches will be tighter and the overall scarf will be a little smaller--but if you don't care, it won't matter.  Smiley

I took up running so that I could eat more, not because it feels good.  haha
