Worth the money!
on 17 October 2014
I have been suffering from a severe case of Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and had been told not to do any drawing, painting, knitting or crochet.
I was slowly going insane!
I CANNOT sit and do nothing.
I tried to do short bursts of things but was still struggling.
My manual dexterity was absolutely abysmal. I was forever dropping things, stitches, making a total mess.
I thought these would be worth a try.
If you compare them to the bulk buy sets of crochet hooks, they do work out expensive.
HOWEVER, if you struggle with manual dexterity for any reason at all, through arthritis or, any number of other complaints, these really do make it easier.
I'm not saying that they solve these problems, they don;t but, they have allowed me to do crochet for about half an hour at a time now, whereas I was struggling to manage 2 minutes before.
It is definitely worth paying the extra for these, it really is, they are smooth on the wool and give you a good grip.
Bizzarely, I don't hold the hook with a vice like grip any more like I used to but it never slips out of my hand either!
