I've been doing quite a bit of crochet lately and have become very fond of my hook with the thicker handle .
I can crochet for much longer and my hand doesn't cramp at all .
I have been on the lookout for a spare one but they aren't easy to find and are a bit pricey .
I thought I'd have a go at making my own thick handles and I must say I am very happy with how they work,
in fact because they are softer I think they are better than the bought ones .
All I did was wrap masking tape around the bare metal hooks and slipped on pencil grips over the top .
The pencil grips had to be wriggled on as I wanted the masking tape thick enough to hold the grips firmly .
This way I can now have extra hooks as I had plenty of old ones with no handles .
I guess you could call me one happy hooker !
