The Hook Specs:
Susan Bates Silvalume Soft Ergonomic Crochet Hooks are the aluminum Susan Bates hooks you know and love - with an ergonomic sleeve that covers everything below the thumb rest.
As you can see, these are in-line hooks, and they are suited for both knife and pencil grips. The size is printed on both the thumb rest and the soft ergonomic handle - and they're color-coded by size too! They are available in sizes US-E, 3.5mm to US-K, 6.5mm. (And I really hope they add the bigger sizes too!)
I learned to crochet with my husband's grandmother's Susan Bates hooks, so on the one hand (no pun intended), this was a return to an old friend. But adding the Soft Ergonomic handles made them so much better!
I tend to hold my hook in a pencil grip, switching the knife grip for certain stitches. So I was concerned that the ergonomic handle was too far down the hook for my typical style. But I was wrong!
I found that I loved the soft section for pencil grip, and the length was perfect. And when I needed to switch to pencil grip, the thumb rest was right where I needed it! The ergonomic portion cushioned the hook when it rubbed against the webbing between finger and thumb, and felt soft and warm against my palm in knife grip.
