I'm hoping to start crocheting next week, my friend keeps posting all her crochet successes on Facebook, and I can't wait to get started. So while searching the Internet for crochet stuff I came across this website http://www.purplelindacrafts.co.uk/milward-bamboo-crochet-hooks-set-7-7879-p.asp they are uk based and also do bamboo hooks. No idea if they area any good but they are deffo in the price bracket.

I use knit pro symfonie hooks and absolutely love them. They feel so nice, look lovely and are just a joy to crochet with. They are a lovely rosewood I think.

You can get them in sets for about £25 I think.

I want to treat myself to some swish crochet hooks and am thinking of getting a nice bamboo set in a box (from hubby for birthday)
Would like some advice about whether they're worth the money and are nice to hook with. Am pretty new to crochet and have only used metal hooks so far, would consider anything as long as they're good to hook with and are pretty. Budget approx £30.
Also does anyone know where I can get these online in the uk. All the fancy ones I've found online so far have been American.
TIA smile
