While my 7 yo was sick yesterday, I did a marathon session on an afghan that will be a Christmas present.  Needless to say my hand started to cramp.  Then all of a sudden it hit me how to make an easy handle for my hook to reduce the cramping. FIMO clay!  Here is a pic.  I put a glob on the handle then started crocheting with it to get it to fit my hand, then baked it to harden it when I was comfortable with the grip.  It may not be real pretty, but is much more comfortable.  I will be doing this with all of my hooks now!

Thats a great idea-- I always get crampy hands--- i even tend to use bigger hooks to avoid it, but you cant use big hooks for everything!

Great idea!

(and if anyone else is interested in making polymer clay "handles" for crochet needles or other kinds of bakable tools, check out this page for some info:
