What I love about the hook: Look into the archives of many online crochet groups from 2005-2006 and you'll see a surge in interest in crochet hooks that light up. I don't remember posting anything on the topic, but I do recall being very interested.
At the 2006 CGOA ChainLink Conference, I was in a crochet class with classmate Vashti Braha, who, after our break, came nearly bouncing in with glee with a new crochet hook from the Vendors Market. (Yes, those are her happy hands pictured with her new NeedleLite crochet hook.) Oh! I recall instantly coveting her new crochet hook - I had to have one for myself! Unfortunately, the vendor who had them had sold out!
A few years later (in 2008 I think), while
These light-up hooks are more expensive than the Clover line of light-up crochet hooks (to be discussed in a future blog post), but I think, based upon the amount of light it produces, it is worth the investment. That, and the fact they're MADE IN USA!
