Thanks for the suggestions for hooks
by Pat Hathaway
I loved your suggestions of things that could be used for a knitting loom tool. I had been using a craft tool I got on a closeout sale online somewhere several years ago. It had a hook at one end and a piercing tip at the other. I had put a refill eraser on the piercing end after accidently poking myself in the chest when I got too close to my work. I had no idea what to call the tool or where to look for something else like it without the sharp end. The hook end was great for eyelash yarn because the tip was small enough to slide under all the eyelashes on the peg easily. My husband was on his way to the hardware store and I showed him the hook and asked him to see if there was something like it in the tool section. He must have had a lot of fun looking because he came back with two packages of tools. Now I have a hook for every occasion [and some that I will never need.) :)
By the way, my favorite loom is the Knifty Knitter looms. I love them all. I like the deep grove on the pegs of the round looms because it is so easy to get the tool under the yarn. The grooves on the straight loom pegs are shallower because the pegs are smaller in diameter, but with my new pointy ended hooks they will easier to use, too.
