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

Want to learn to crochet or knit?  I have a ton of extra crochet hooks & circular knitting needles.  Will throw in some pattern books and yarn for anyone interested in a swap.

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.
