I searched WalMart's site for the set that I have, but was only able to find out of stock on another site.  Just know that WalMart has for right about $26, I think.  The only downfall is that the hook size is very small and in white, so hard to see in low light and no case.  I may mak myself a case, eventually, and add sizes to it somehow.  Also, two of the small ergonomic hooks will fit in the toothbrush holder at a time and I rarely carry that many with me.

I've found a few sets on aliexpress, you never know what sort of quality you're going to get ordering direct from china but I'll take a chance (I have 100 doll eyes that are cheap garbage, only cost me 2 bucks though so meh whatever).

Now I have another newb question. Why do people leave their ends loose so they need to be woven in afterwards? I catch them in with my stitches as I go, there are only the few odd occasions I'm left with an end like when starting a circle. Is there a reason not to do this that I don't know about or am I just so incredibly lazy that I've developed a new trick y'all don't know about?

I like to weave my ends in as I go, too! Easy to crochet over them.

Good, I am glad to hear it's a thing! So many patterns call for weaving them in after and I'm like really? Why why why would I leave that much work to do at the end if I can just stick them in as I go? When I'm finished crocheting a thing I want to be done, lol!
