Addi Crochet Hooks Review

I got one of these hooks to see what the hype was all about. A size H(5mm), my fave hook size. :-)

I actually wish I hadn't purchased it now. After using it I found it was a really nice hook, but it kept on getting caught up in the yarn. It was snagging or something! Then I realized the problem was there is no flat grip area/part or whatever it's called. The hook kept on turning in my fingers and I had to constantly twist it the right way around so I could smoothly work with the yarn and that's why it was snagging. If I held the hook really tight, then I was able to stop it from turning in my hand. But that's not really comfy though is it?!

So, I'll try it a few more times just to make sure, but I may have to give this thing away. Back to my prym hooks and my Japanese double ended hooks. :-) I need the finger grip area! ;-)

Now I'm off to find the perfect crochet hook case. I really like the namaste buddy notions cases, but the only place that'll ship to the UK wants to charge $25 for shipping!! Uhhhh, no. There is no way in the world that little case costs that much to ship to me!! There has to be another way! *sob*
