I LOVE it, the hook itself is very comfortable to hold and to work with. I was not clumsy with it like I was concerned about. The light was not glaring, it would shine down onto my working area and nowhere else, but if I had dropped something onto the floor it also worked as a mini flashlight.
I have included a link to a group that I belong to called Crochet Soiree, it is a fantastic crochet group but that's an understatement. It is a whole crochet universe, they have everything you could possibly think of plus some items you probably have never thought of. They sell these hooks so the link I've included here will take you right to their store and where these hooks are located. I purchased a size H hook because that was what I needed for this project, but trust me I am going to purchase several more sizes. Oh, I almost forgot about the batteries. It uses 3 tiny flat button style batteries but I was worried that maybe this would only last me about one hour and then burn out. Wrong! I do not know how long they will last but i used mine yesterday about 4-5 hours and it is still bright today. So I am sold on it. Jay took some photos so maybe you can get an idea of what it looks like, I hope you can see it good enough. I am working with brown yarn and it really helped me.
I'm not saying this hook is for everyone.....just for those that want to keep a better eye on what they are doing, like me. I forgot to tell you a little bit about Crochet Soiree, it is such a neat crochet place. We all get together and chat about what we are working on or what we are stuck on, and the others on there are ever so nice in offering help or suggestions and if they don't know the answer they can usually suggest someone that does. Most of us all turn to Tamara Gonzales, she is just a whiz at crochet and very nicely lets us know the way that works best for her or explains what the instructions mean when we can't understand all the jibberish. I'll have to keep you up to date on her because she has a crochet book coming out in the spring of this year. But you know what? Why don't you come join us and you will be able to keep an eye out for yourself plus meet a big group of very nice people get free patterns and free help when needed.
