I've got a hook and I'm not afraid to use it.

My trusty aluminum K hook. I have a bit of a tension problem, so I always end up using larger hooks. The K hook is what I always end up using for worsted weight.

It's funny because I only ever use the Bates hooks. I haven't really tried to use anything else...but I bet if I did I would have a fit because it wasn't the same.

We're weird.

I have a wooden hood my friend carved for me in exchange for a hat, I use it for everything that I don't use a pattern for because I'm not sure what guage it is, but I've always got it on me regardless.

NZ use mm instead of letters as well, and although I have about 26 hooks now (I was lucky enough to receive my Nannies hooks after she passed away) my entire family know that you touch my yellow thick handled 3.5 I will throw things at you  Grin it was my first hook and the one I learnt with  Cheesy

funny topic Smiley  I probably wouldn't DIE for it (haha)
BUT I love my Clover Soft Touch E Hook for sure----its smaller because I do amigurumi and crochet pretty tight any way.  Using a bigger hook I just notice so many holes.

When i first started crochet 'k' was my hook of choice, as it was easier to use being kinda big.  But now, my hook of choice is 'h'.  I use it for pretty much every project that i do. Grin

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

Most projects it depends on what I'm making, but I'm always using up the leftovers into scrap pieces for scrap afghans and I always use G hooks for those.  That way I never have to guess what hook I was using for them.  Right now I'm making a Spiderman Round Robin with H, a 'larger scrap' afghan with J, hats with H, and the smaller scrap pieces with G.  And the hooks always stay with the project.  If I put it aside for a while, the hook stays with it.  That's why I have so many of each size, How many times do I have to explain that to the hubby?  LOL

Me: "I need to buy some yarn and another crochet hook"

My boyfriend "Don't you already have like 10 of them

Me: "They come in different sizes"

Boyfriend "...how many???" because he knows I will not stop until I have them all!  MWAHAHAHAH

But...like he should talk. I collect crochet hooks and knitting needles. He collects guitars. GUITARS! Knitting needles and crochet hooks--like 5 dollars max. Guitar...THOUSANDS!

...seriously...

I would have to say my I hook, I rarely use a pattern and find I almost always grab my I hook unless I want something done fast then it's J or P.
