I normally use a 2.5 hook. that's perfect for most of the yarns I get here. the advantage of the small crocheted works is that they take up less space. (unless I wanted to crochet clothes or something )
Once I crocheted a scarf and it took me ages! Altough it's only 10 cm wide, it's more than 3 meters long! and last Christmas I made another one for my boyfriend (because he loved mine so much) but I had to rush.. so I finished it in 3 weeks' time. And now I know I will never crochet any clothes
haha, no. too much work included. ever since I knitted a sweater for my little brother when I was younger, I know that I'm not cut out for big projects like that. though I'm trying my hand at crocheting a bag right now (with a 4.0 hook, so it's a little faster than with my usual hook). it's maybe 1/4 finished, but I've been idling for a month now. really should get to work on it again.
