Who Would Have Thought

For the last 2 days I have gone to 7 different stores looking for a US 13 steel crochet hook. The only place I was able to find one was at Michael's. The catch to that is it's part of a crochet hook set. I don't really think I can justify spending $40 on crochet hooks for just one hook. I called Farida at the Knitting Basket and she checked to see if she can get it for me - she can't. I was just about ready to give up and just deal with the 14 hook when I thought of Romni. They have practically everything there. So I called them and sure enough they have the 13 US steel hook and they are holding one for me. I am going to go over there this afternoon and pick it up. I know the hook will definitely fit through the hole in the pin because I tested the 13 hook from the set at Michael's. I was sooooo tempted to get the set but I just couldn't see myself doing it. Once I pick up the 13 hook from Romni I'll probably find my complete set of Susan Bates hooks. Isn't that the way it always is?

    That always happens to me. I buy something new because I can't find what I'm looking for, and then two or three days later, sometimes longer, I find what I'm looking for. Does Romni take back if you find yours?? I know some places don't have a return policy on needles & hooks. But maybe you can exchange it if you find yours??

    On the plus side, if you schlepp all the way down to Romni, you might as well check out the bead place on Queen Street!
