Hello crafters! I hope you have been up to something creative and beautiful. You may recall me telling you about the Trendz knitting needles set a little while back, which was fabulous, or perhaps the double ended crochet hooks, also fabulous. Since you know how I feel about the materials used in Trendz, it should come as no surprise that when I needed afghan hooks I wanted Trendz.
As with the other hooks, the Trendz Afghan Hooks are designed by crafters, so they know what we are looking for in a hook. They feel good in your hand and actually seem to warm up as you use them. They give a little grab on the yarn which is wonderful for slippy yarns, which I always struggle with, or tricky stitches. They do have a little flexibility as well, which I find that I love.
The tips slip easily into my stitches and don't catch, split or snag any of the yarns I use. Since they are afghan hooks, you will notice they have a metal bottom that looks different to a traditional hook and that is so you can attach cords to hold on more stitches if you are working on a large Tunisian project.
They are available in sizes five to twelve millimeter, which is great because I do love to work with chunky yarns. I so enjoyed making the reflective scarf for my sister that as soon as these hooks arrived, I started one for myself done in HDC in the back loops to give that awesome ridged look.
You can find details about these and their other great products offered by Knitter's Pride on their website and stay in touch with them on Facebook as well.
