Skein Passion

Luscious 'fioro' hand died merino-silk yarn skeins from The Yarn Bowl in the shades sepia rose, abalone and plum purple As Valentines day approaches sprinklings of pink hearts and cutesy romance sayings start popping up all over the place. Yarn sales are overflowing with red and pink colourways and patterns are dotted with love knots.  But I want to talk about Passion. That deep intense desire you experience when you touch that divine squishy yarn skein, you know the one I'm talking about, that skein that makes your heart sing. It's a magic colour, squishing it is like touching a cloud with the lustre of angels. The yarn of your dreams. Where were you when you had that experience the first time? In a specialty yarn store looking at the silk-alpaca blends? I'm willing to bet it wasn't, more likely it was at the discount store passing the bargain aisle and this little ball of fluff caught your eye and you sighed and squished it and wished you had the skill to turn

Curved Handle Crochet Hook Review

Curved Handle Crochet Hooks

From time to time I indulge in buying a few crochet hooks.

Every time I saw these curved handle crochet hooks I would scroll on past thinking they were just too gimmicky, that the shape was silly and they're pink, which is not my favourite colour. If they were eucalyptus green I probably would have grabbed them in a heart beat just because of the leaf like shape.

My curiosity finally got the better of me and I purchased a set of these curvy beauties and they were not at all what I expected.

Inspecting the Hooks and Grannies

It's the nooks and crannies of a hook that determines how pleasant it is to use so let's take a closer look at these *curious crochet hooks (affiliate link).




5 sizes
2.0mm, 2.5mm, 3.0mm, 3.5mm, 4.0mm


Hard plastic

Numbering method

The numbers are cast with the handle in relief (raised) and won't be rubbing off, well, ever.

Numbering unit

Metric measurements. There is also some text in Chinese characters but I have no idea if it refers to numbers or branding or something else entirely, but it does act as a thumb grip.


Pink handle
Silver hook

Head Shape





That's the bit between the grip and the throat of the hook.
The listing claims a 4.5mm shank and delivers on it's promise.
The shank length is very consistent and well placed in relation to the handle. They have been very carefully positioned in relation to the handle, a detail often overlooked on cheaper hooks.


While there is not actually a grip like the one found on the porcelain hooks the text in relief does provide additional traction.


Plastic, flat and curved to fit the hand, the handle measures in at the 9.8mm as listed.
Although the curve direction is different if held in the left hand it is still very comfortable to hold, more so then I expected.

Hand Feel and Overall Impression 

These curved handle hooks look and feel cheap but they are a joy to use!

I am really surprised by these hooks. I wish the size range included both larger and smaller sizes.
I'm adding these hooks to my most commonly used styles.

They are also ridiculously affordable. I have paid a lot more for hooks that have not lived up to their promises as these curvaceous hooks have. I have zero regrets about my impulsive purchase.
