Grandma's a riot. Crocheting and knitting are physical therapy for her arthritis, so she does it all day long. (From about six in the morning until eight at night.) She had cataract surgery two years ago, and switched from doing simple granny squares to intricate laces again.

BUT she's going a little senile, and tends to forget she's done things. Two years ago, after the surgery, she made around seventy-five crochet angels, because she would forget she had made them as soon as she gave them to my mother for the Christmas tree - and could never figure out where all her yarn had gone. Last year I ended up with eight hats and four pairs of mittens - again, she forgot.  She's also got a rather - uh - unihibited sense of humor, and I now have a collection of bunnies - lady bunnies, with breasts. Mom ended up with a leprechaun doll that is a wee bit too detailed for display, if you take my meaning. Yeah.

No wonder she goes through so many hooks.

Oh, I *LOATHE* acrylic hooks. I bought a pack of them at Hobby Lobby because of their pretty purple, pink, yellow, and orange goodness... and broke EVERY one of them! Ok... so I can use the bigger ones without snapping them, but the little ones are horrible! (I still have some too, that my grandmother gave me... ugh)

THANK YOU! I was looking into purchasing them for the same reason. Thanks for the tip!
