    Too bad the sizes aren’t printed on the hooks, I hate when I get sets like that!
    Otherwise, it looks like a gorgeous set!

      Karen: The set definitely is lovely. And, as long as you have a gauge on hand, the lack of sizes on the hooks really isn’t too much of a problem.

    OK I was all about the review until I saw your hook gauge. WHERE DID YOU GET THAT??? I NEED IT!!

    I couldn’t help but think (after I finally dragged my mind away from the TARDIS hook gauge) of the new Harmony crochet hook set that Knitpicks has released and wondering how this stacks up to that. Is this sturdier because of the heads only being wood? I know I have bought a set of the Harmony wood knitting needles and have had them break several times right on the grain so I’m wondering how these hold up.

      First things first, I got my TARDIS gauge here: http://www.etsy.com/listing/100971093/police-box-knitting-needle-gauge-laser

      Now, in response to your question about how this set compares to the Harmony crochet hook set from Knitpicks, unfortunately, since I haven’t tried those particular hooks, I can’t really weigh in. I can say that, after working with several gauges and yarn types, the Boye Artisan Tools hooks never felt fragile, and I didn’t notice any movement from the wood while I was using them. For what it’s worth, I’ve been playing with the Boye set for about a month, and I’m not exactly gentle when it comes to using tools. :)

    Thanks for the crochet hook info. I have a special request. I would like to use some of the beautiful digital papers but my printer doesn’t do them justice. Have you ever tested the different printers to see which produces a pretty print of the digital papers? I have a Kodak and the results are a dull look. Thanks heaps.

      Hi Carol. I haven’t tried to print digital papers myself—I don’t do much paper crafting—but Jenny reviewed the Epson Stylus Photo R2000 Color Inkjet Printer here. Hope that helps!

    I recently purchased a set (got a deal at Tuesday Morning for $29.95). I haven’t used them yet but noticed that the heads are almost square. Is your set the same and if so, does that fact bother you or impact your work?
