I pushed too hard and it pooped (am I allowed to say this lol?) the bottom of my crochet hook :joy:

Lol :laughing: I would try to try to push it up so the metal doesn’t show, and maybe tape it or hot glue it down :relaxed:

i asked my bf about the hot glue gun (he has a chemistry diploma or sth) and he said it’s rubber (i think is called in English, that material that tires have) and it will just end up with a hole and/or catch on fire :frowning:
also the scotch I tried and it’s waaay too annoying
I have another 3mm hook but it’s made of plastic and it’s bigger so it measures like a 3.5 metal hook instead :slight_smile:

You can buy replacements for those that will fit most hooks, they also sell a product you can dip metal tools into to make a soft grip handle

Not knowing where you are… The most basic and common brands here is Susan Bates and Boye. They can be purchased almost anywhere here and on Amazon or custom made ones on etsy

I’m outside the US or America, I’m in Romania, Europe (i tend to mention this because not many people have heard of this country even though it’s kinda big lol) and honestly, I have no idea what I have xD
I bought it separately and it didn’t say(or I didn’t see) the name on her package

how have people not heard of Romania?! lol
not knowing your merchant preferences, replacement soft handles that will slip onto your hook do exist, you can also check out a hardware store to see if they have the slip-on replacements for tool handles that will fit… at worse, they also have the slip on soft grips that are made for pencils. You shouldn’t have to replace the hook.

now I’m asking myself the same question lol​:joy:

honestly idk, whenever I talked with people from other countries (or usually the USA) they’re like “RoMaNiA iS a CoUnTrY??” or stuff like that :joy:
I didn’t know what a hardware store is so I looked it up lol
Apparently, we have 5 in the capital
The problem is that if I go there I might run out of money :joy:

You might be able to get some clay that air dries in a toy store?
YouTube might have some tutorials on how to make a clay hook handle.
