Learning Discussions:

Different types of hooks made. A comparison of wood, aluminum,  & plastic in feel, weight, and size.
Debbie's reason why she would use wooden hooks is the size of her grip compared to the length of the hook. Since having large hands, the plastic and metal are too small, after a while, she experiences pain and cramping.
Melissa pointed out that when you use metal, after a while, your hands get hot and sweaty, and messes up your work. She's ordered special hooks from Japan that they swear they are the best!
Regina added that when she uses the metal hooks, they feel heavy, which causes fatigue. Future discussions on hooks will be repeated, especially when Melissa's order comes in!
