Sentimental Crochet Hooks

I began my ripple with my special crochet hook from my Grandma Eva, found it felt weird to hold, switched to a steel size E, but have tonight returned to the old hook. I just love it so much, and am going to try to get used to the feel. I posted pictures of these hooks on my blog. Does anyone else have a special hook they're working with? I know someone did mention also using one from their grandma. Anyway, it's nice to think that my Bubbe is rippling along with me. I'm sure she would have enjoyed this!

It was me, Susan/ZenKnit. I did finally change from the hook from my granny. A very nice plastic one that was meant to look like bone/carved. But the metal needle is vintage in it's own way; one of the ones I used way back when I learned how to crochet - that would be in the late 60s early 70s. Whew!

Oh yes! that one from your granny sounds like the one from mine--plastic made to look carved, at least I think it's plastic. They must have been popular!
