This is an update to my previous review of Etimo crochet hooks. I stated before, that the hooks were going to get some getting used to. So I put them aside for a while, as I had a few projects to complete. Well, I finally had the chance to try them again, and it didn't take but a few rows to know that I never want to go back to my old hooks! Normally, I hold my hook very tightly. When I learned to relax my hand into the ergonomic grip, everything fell into place. My tension is better than ever! I would like to buy all of the available sizes now. I recently had to go back to a regular hook as I didn't have a size "N" Etimo. I was counting the stitches until I could get back to a project for which I could use an Etimo hook! I think I will be contacting Knitty City soon to get the set of smaller sized hooks.
UPDATE (September 7, 2010): Please see my latest blog post on Etimo hooks for new online availability information.
This is an ad from one of my vintage crochet magazines. I have several vintage crochet hooks, but have never seen one quite like this (Etimo's long lost relative, lol)!
