Two Crochet {Toys} Tools: A Review

2a

Hi Friends,

Recently I ordered and received a couple of crochet toys tools.  Today I was able to try them out while crocheting a cup cozy order.   Here is my review on each.  {You can read more by clicking on the product name and reading about it on the Amazon.com listing.}

The Boye Ergonomic Aluminum Crochet Hook Handle:

Product Description – “…Ergonomic Aluminum Crochet Handle. Use this tool to get a better handle on a crochet hook while working on any project! It fits all hook sizes from B/2mm to K/6.5mm. This package contains one 4-1/2 inch long handle with eight washers in assorted sizes. Imported.”

The Pros – Felt surprisingly comfortable in my hand, was easy to get use to, has washer inserts for each common size crochet hook, felt no strain on hand while using.

The Cons – Not much except that the part of the crochet hook that was inside the handle rattled a little when using it, so I wrapped a little tissue paper around it and closed it up and that solved the problem.  Also, this handle may not work with everyone’s crocheting style, but it does work with mine.

Clover Yarn Cutter Pendant, Antique Silver:

Product Description – “Yarn can be cut using any of the grooves. Rotary cutting blade is integrated with pendant, making it safe to use.”

Pros – It worked well and was very handy to wear around my neck.

Cons – When finishing off a crochet piece by weaving in the yarn ends, you may like using a pair of scissors better to snip as close as you want to the end of the yarn.  It wasn’t an issue for this project, but I could see where it might be in some cases.

Needless to say, it is fun having some new toys tools to use while crocheting.  🙂

What are your favorites?

Joyfully,

Jackie
