Crochet Tip: Buy the best tools (crochet hooks) for your craft (crochet) that you can afford.
I often listen to the podcast The Creative Yarn Entrepreneur Show by Marie Segares.
One suggestion she had on a podcast last year was to buy really good tools for your craft. Using cheap tools can lead to injury. I had been using the regular aluminum crochet hooks you can buy at any craft store. After long projects, I was getting some serious hand cramps.

I finally took her advice and bought myself an entire set of Tulip Etimo Rose Crochet hooks on Amazon.
You can buy them individually or as a set. The set of Tulip crochet hooks comes in a nice zippered case with a inside zipper pocket. There are 10 crochet hooks ranging from 2.00mm to 6.00mm, each with their own elastic space. Inside the zippered pocket are super sharp scissors and 2 different sizes of yarn needles in their own case.

Since purchasing myself these awesome crochet hooks, I've had no hand cramps and I feel like I'm able to crochet just a little bit faster as they are easier to grip.
Now if I can just keep them away from my little guy! He thinks his version of crocheting is such fun!
