Having used the wonderful Clover hooks range, I thought I'd try these as they looked really well designed. I'm afraid I'm having to return mine as I found the plastic handle too heavy. While the shape is very different to the Clover or ordinary, standard ranges, and I was aware that, given time, I would get used to its shape, I found the handle too heavy. It might be ok for chunkier, larger hands, but it was too heavy for me. I must say though that the actual metal hook is the best I have tried as it is very smooth and the wool glides beautifully on it. It reminded me of DM shoes - ever so comfortable, but too heavy, leaving me with tired muscles in spite the comfort.
