I love to crochet with thread, but after using the small hooks for a while my fingers begin to cramp. As a remedy to this problem I decided to bake some clay around the hook making the grip larger.  It worked out great!

Those are really pretty!  What are you crocheting with thread?  The needles look so tiny!

These are so pretty. I like those a lot.  I don't crochet, but my mom does. She would love those.  I bet you could sell them.

That is a really good idea!! They look really good.  My fingers get crampy too.  So, what do you crochet with thread?  I can only think of doilies and ornaments. I would like some ideas.  Cheesy

I have that same problem... gonna have to try that tonight!

I use thread for fashion doll clothes, tops, really anything.  Thread is used more than yarn or anything else on most of my projects. Grin

It's most likely a man-made clay that hardens after being "toasted" lightly.  Try looking into Sculpey III clay.  They make it in tons of colors.  They sells different "lines" of the clay, but the best one is Sculpey II because it's softer and therefore easier to work with.  You can also blend colors together such as blue and white to make light blue.  You can buy it in any AC Moore or Michael's Arts & Crafts stores.
