Added "Wood" Handles to some crochet hooks

I found these instructions (which includes a video) on adding polymer clay handles to crochet hooks. This eases to strain on my old hands for doing some tight stitches required for tapestry crochet and some other special stitches with smaller hooks.

I think the effect worked well - I used gold and burnt umber colored polymer clay.
I'll be converting the rest of my metal hooks with the same method soon.

Yours look so much nicer then the ones on the instruction page. Very nice color combination too. I've done this to my hooks also, you can crochet for hours with these custom handles!
