Furls Streamline Crochet Hook Review

Hello! Today I'm feeling very achy so I'm huddled under some blankets and I'm watching a show on netflix. I would be a little sad that I'm not able to do much today but instead, I've got a crochet project on my lap and every so often I can pick up my Furls Streamline crochet hook and I can crochet a couple of rows. As I insert my hook into the next stitch, yarn over and pull up a loop, I feel happy. I'm creating something and as I'm creating it, I'm enjoying the process so much because my yarn is soft and my hook glides smoothly and easily over the yarn as I create stitch after stitch.
