It might have felt like crocheters were doomed to always have a million crochet hooks that they needed to carry around just incase they wanted another size.

Interchangeable Crochet Hooks:
Many times when starting a project you will find that you need to use different hook sizes until you get the gauge right. Rather than having to carry along a big set of hooks a set of interchangeable hooks will save you space.
After doing some searching it was hard to find many options for interchangeable hooks. I could find a set for steel tip hooks (used for dollies) and I found this amazing set from Polymer Clay Shed. Learn more about the artist below. These hooks are amazing in the craftsmanship that goes into the making the handles. Anyone can get a set of hooks but the talent that Carola has to make the clay elements is amazing.
I loved these hooks because not only could I carry my whole set of hooks with me but the clay handles make them ergonomic. For me it is much easier to work longer on a project when the handles are larger. I think that you will enjoy them too when you pick up your set, or even individual hook.
About the Artist:
Polymer Clay Shed is a small Etsy business running out of Texas. With great customer service and a great product I know this will be jumping to the top of your wish list.
Carola was living for over 30 Years in Berlin (Germany) and then moved to the US in 1998, together with my family, hubby and 3 kids. She was always involved in some kind of crafts, not always Polymer Clay but painting in oil, scrap booking, art projects with her kids and girl scouts troop. In 2007 she rediscovered Polymer Clay, a craft she learned 2nd grade to make a Christmas ornament in art class. Ever since then she hasn’t been able to put it down. Combining colors and coming up with new designs is what she loves.
The technique used in my work Is called “caning” in which a cane, or a long roll of Polymer Clay is made with a design that runs the full length of the cylinder. This can be sliced and applied to flat or curved surfaces as a design element. This process imitates the technique used in making certain types of glass beads and is called millefiori. The completed piece is finished by sanding and buffing.
All the canes I am using are 100% hand crafted and designed by me. I am using Premo clay for my creations.
