5 Review Hobby Lobby Ergonomic Plastic Crochet Hooks P thru Q

5 Review Hobby Lobby Ergonomic Plastic Crochet Hooks P thru QHobby Lobby Ergonomic plastic crochet hooks P thru Q 5 star review. Was looking for a metal L hook and only found plastic and found one. Now most plastic hooks snag but these do not. Was quite impressed!

Top of hook holds the yarn nicely because it has a good curve to it, not like the ones the constantly snag yarn or make it difficult to do stitches.

Found these give you nice even stitch work, light in weight and have a nice size handle to provide you more comfort with your grip. Worth giving a try!

The only thing that is stopping me from using these is plastic does not allow yarn to glide on the hook as easily, therefore creating more a a pull which in turn makes my arms and fingers hurt more easily. That is the only drawback if you suffer arthritis or you muscles pull easily, plastic is not an answer.

Yarn Bee Sweet Divinity by Hobby Lobby 4.5 Star Review

Beautiful dyed look colors and a size G hook works well. Sweet Divinity Yarn Bee gets a 4.5 star review because of splices in every ball and is so frustrating to deal with splits. The feel is nice, soft and if you're working with textured stitches, it will definitely pop out and look absolutely gorgeous.

Breathe Deep Spa Yarn Bee Hobby Lobby 5 Star Review

This is extremely soft and give Breathe Deep Spa Yarn by Hobby Lobby a 5 star review. Wash and dries very nicely, holds shape, and no fuzz. Even the fringe holds up. There are a lot of possibilities of items to make with this. One of the first ones will be place mats because of its drape and thickness and some blankets. Of all the balls used, found no splices.

Susan Bates Comfort Cushion Crochet Hook Review All Sizes

Am deeply disappointed in this product and give Susan Bates Comfort Cushion size 002 to K crochet hook a 2.5 star review. Images will show how small the hole is to try and slide your hook through. There is also a size 001 through G hook available too which I purchased and has the same problem, especially getting this over the oval part of the small steel hooks for using on crochet thread. The hole size is really no different. Although this helps your hands tremendously, I will be venturing around to find something better and easier.

Bernat Baby Sport Yarn Review

To say the least, I'm disappointed in Bernat Baby Sport Yarn and will give it a 3.5 star review due to the roughness in touching it. Most cheaper or bulk ball yarns at least soften up after washing and drying but this product did not. There were no splices at all after using 2 balls. It is rougher than the smaller ounce yarns and if you're looking for a softer piece, just spend a few extra dollars or catch a sale to get a cushy finished piece. After all, baby should be surrounded in a comfortable blanket.

Bernat Softee Baby Yarn Review

Love the feel of this! I give Bernat Softee Baby Yarn a 5 star review. After using 4 balls of this, there was not one splice. This washes and dries very nicely on delicate and tumble dry low heat and maintained shape and size. Makes a wonderful blanket or clothing item for babies.
