At the risk of sounding like a total loser... I'm a big fan of my custom steel hooks.  I took Susan Bates and Boye hooks (now I can't distinguish them - lol - but I did write the mm size on them), covered the handles in polymer clay, and baked them, so they have a nice heftier handle (somewhat like the Clovers).

But I suppose that wasn't the question.  With thread crochet (the only crochet I do besides amigurumi occasionally) I'm a fan of a 1.9 mm hook, and with yarn crochet it's a tie between F-5 and E-4.  Smiley

4ml (or 4.5ml if I'm feeling naughty) plastic. I have a bright yellow one that I love.

First post!

C (3 mm) and D (3.5 mm). I mainly make amigurumi and those hooks work well for the type of yarn I use Smiley

I'd have to say I use G, H & I pretty equally depending on what I'm making.  The only thing I'm really wishing for are some hooks with the polymer clay handles.  I'll have to learn how to work with clay so I can make some:))

H.  If the pattern will work with my trusty H hook I don't bother using another size.  =P

I seem to always be using a H or J hook.

I am always buying one of these sizes.
They are like scissors or the other sock, just disappearing in oblivion.

 Tongue They are probably in WIP's that I should finish.

I have more than one H hook so I guess that's my hook of choice Wink

I am usually an "H" girl.  my friend got me a beautiful purple (my fave color) hook with millifleur on the handle for the holidays, and I LOVE it, however recently I make a blanket with a "Q" and that was wicked fun!  SO fast.  I also am currently working on a project with a "e" and an "f", a snood, and a baby blanket, respectively.
