Tunisian Crochet Hooks

Mark & I went to my favourite store today (Spotlight) and I was very disappointed that they didn't have what I was looking for. I wanted to get some Tunisian crochet hooks. Mark had asked one of the workers there if they had any in store because I couldn't find them with the knitting needles & the crochet hooks. They didn't even know what Mark was talking about. They had never heard of them. Looks like I will need to get them from ebay.

I did discover something during my googling & that is maybe we asked for these hooks by a name they girls at Spotlight didn't know. These hooks are also called afghan or tricot hooks depending on where you're from I guess. I had no idea. You learn something new every day :D

Okay I've done it now. I've bought the aluminium ones like the ones in the picture. I got them from ebay and they're coming from England. I wonder how long that will take. With any luck I might get them at the end of next week :)
