Merry Christmas to me. I have wanted to buy these hooks for years. I admired them from afar and wondered if they were truly all they were toted to be. I originally only purchased three hooks with a coupon of course to give it a try first.
It felt awkward in my hand but I wanted to give it a go and see. So I decided to consistently crochet every day for a week to see if my hands could tell if this was a fit for me. If you didn’t know, I have Rheumatoid Arthritis in my hands quite badly, which makes it difficult for me to crochet for long amounts of time.
The hooks felt heavy and chunky at first and I didn’t know where to place my thumb. I finally figured out that I should place my thumb on the red part of the handle just below the gold plated shaft. I then used my pointing finger to keep the yarn from totally sliding up the shaft to keep my tension even. After practicing for a week I decided that I did want to replace my old Tulip Entimo hooks with the Furls.
How was I going to justify the purchase of these hooks to my budget? I waited and waited until a really good 40% off coupon appeared in my inbox and then decided I better make the purchase. So I bought as many as I could at the time. I waited for another coupon to appear in my inbox it was not as good as the 40% off I think it was like 25% off but it was better than nothing. I managed to pick up the complimenting Furls Odyssey 12 hook stand and a single holder to match my red Furls. All I need left to complete my set is the matching Furls Yarn bowl and the G+ hook and I will have it all. I will be waiting for another coupon of course.
I can honestly say it is worth the money as my hands do not hurt as much and I have been able to increase my crochet time which is enjoyable now. For a while I thought I was going to have to give up crocheting. Thanks to the design of Furls I can continue to crochet and keep on making beautiful handmade items.
