Smooth buttery finish, this little hook is the perfect size to help you fix dropped stitches and slipping multiple stitches over other multiple stitches. It's so small that I do loose it between uses. I think it needs a loop on the end which I would use to slip over my little finger to keep the hook handy. It's a very clever idea, much easier to use than a standard size crochet hook or a tapestry needle, but due to its small size when dropped it's like trying to find a dropped sewing needle in the carpet.
Lost my cheap metal repair hook so decided I'd treat myself to this beauty. Unfortunately, it's not as easy to use as my old one. The hook doesn't seem to be the right size for any of the yarns I've used, from sock to worsted. Save the money for another pretty skein and buy the cheap one!
