 More portable and fun than the full Denise set 1 of 1

 Product reviewed: Denise - Denise2Go Crochet
I've had great experiences with the full set of Denise crochet hooks. They are the only plastic hooks I've ever used that don't snag on the yarn or snap. I find metal hooks uncomfortable for Tunisian crochet and so I use the Denise hooks a lot for double-ended and Tunisian projects. The hooks are made entirely in the USA in a zero landfill environment, which I also appreciate. This new Denise2Go for Crochet kit comes rolled up in an attractive fabric designed by Lorna Miser of Lorna's Laces yarn. This is truly something that can fit in your pocket if you have jeans or something with sizeable pockets on, that is. Each kit includes 6 hooks in US sizes from H-8/5 mm to M-13/9 mm, 4 teal cords in 3 inch, 5 inch, 9 inch, and 14 inch lengths to coordinate with the case, 2 end buttons, and 1 extender. For a crocheter who works primarily with sport/DK, medium/worsted, and bulky yarns, these hooks are a great range for projects on the go. I love that the cords are a different color than the ones in my regular set. And, this is so much more portable than the full set, which is what I previously crammed into my bag when traveling. The kit retails for $39.95. The frugal version of me would say you might be better off buying the full kit, since it has more hooks, cords, extenders, and end buttons. The version of me that likes cute stuff and travels a lot would say you are better off buying the 2 Go kit since it is so darn adorable and it is even more portable than the full set. Full disclosure: A free review sample of this kit was provided by Denise. Although I accept free products for review, I do not accept additional compensation, nor do I guarantee a positive review. My reviews are based entirely on my honest opinions.
