I cannot find bamboo crochet hooks anywhere and I really love my bamboo knitting needles. Anyone have a good online source for supplies? Thanks.

I've seen them at Michael's Craft store I think. Never bought bamboo hooks online. I like Addi hooks, which I bought on eBay. Hope you find what you're looking for.

Yeah, Michaels has them, as does Wal-Mart. Do you have an LYS in your area?

Online, the two biggies for crochet hooks are Annie's Attic & Herrschner's. Both have been around quite some time & I would trust them easily. Here's Herrschner's bamboo hooks, & here's Annie's Attic's.

My bamboo hooks are Clover (I don't actually like them, but I don't like bamboo knitting needles either); here's a link to them at Joann: http://www.joann.com/joann/catalog.j...RODID=prd32039 So if you've got a Joann's in your area, you can probably buy them in-store.

You can even get them on Amazon, apparently:

Wow, thanks. I didn't even think about Amazon (and I buy everything from there!). $8.99 for 5 hooks. If the quality is good, I might buy some new circular knitting needles too. A set of 14 different sizes for $25-and free shipping.
