    very nice gift. how can she not like it. it's a great idea too. a fellow board member has nice wood hand carved hooks. i'd love a set of those in a case like yours.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    How handy! I haven't crocheted in a long time, but when I did I was always misplacing the various hooks. This is a wonderful gift.

    Thanks!! These crochet hooks have bamboo handles! My SIL has difficulty using regular crochet hook ( slightly arthritic fingers!) but these are nice and chunky but very light!!

    She is going to love it. I will have to remember this idea for my DDI . Where did you get those crochet hooks with bamboo handles?
