Incidentally, I LOVE this new hook, it's AWESOME!! Other than the obvious ergonomics, I just love how they are (brightly) color coded AND they have super large size labels...perfect for eyes that just aren't what they used to be. I may just have to get a set of these. They will be my orthopedic crochet hooks. Thanks again Maven!! You are AWESOME!

  3. It does look slick doesn't it? I love that each size comes in a different color.
