Tuesday, 3/9/10 Washing Your Crochet Hooks

Crocheting Dishclothes and Hot Pads

I was crocheting along the other day, making some hot pads and dishcloths, when all of a sudden it felt like my hook was sticking to my yarn. Have you ever had that happen to you?

Washing My Hooks

Well, I took my hooks to the sink and dipped them in some hot soapy water and then rinsed and dried them well. I’ll tell you what; those hooks are gliding right through the yarn now. I think sometimes the oils and lotions on my hands or maybe the acrylic yarns make them sticky. Anyway, I thought this might help someone else with sticky hook problems.

Reminder: Only wash aluminum, steel, or plastic hooks.
