THanks for all the help! I think i have a better idea of what i want....welll...maybe... Smiley

I also have to say that i noticed a horrible typo/grammer mistake and i am going to be total nerd and point it out because if i didn't i would never get the voice of my grade school english teacher out of my head. 

But are their any sizes that are a standard or that are generally good to have around?

I wrote their instead of there........silly me Grin

I have my mother's vintage boye set circa 1970's. It came in a much more attractive plastic case (no ugly grey one), and I swear by boye. If I can't ge that brand, I get angry. I think the shape of the hook itself is much easier to work with than say . . . Susan Bates (which are squared off). In fact, I have some of the Susan Bates plastic ("crystal") hooks and I had to file them down with an emery board because they had plastic leftovers standing out from the seams. Very frustrating.

But yeah, Boye.

I find that I use the f, g, and h hooks the most. In fact, two of those three aren't in the case right now!

I adore http://www.handpaintedyarn.com  Their yarns are gorgeous and come from a women's co-op in Uraguay. The colors are a bit inconsistent and don't always look like the web (because they are hand dyed) but they are always beautiful, super soft, and good prices.
