Knowing what size crochet hook to use on a pattern not by reading it, but because you recognize the hook’s color in someone else’s progress-shot.
“That’s a size I/9.”
“How can you tell?”
“It’s light green.”
Totally unfair. When I had to buy another G hook, it was the same color as my lost H hook; when I had to buy another H hook, it was the same color as my I hook. So now I have 2 of the same color. :(
Metallic pinky mauve? I have 2 G’s that color and once upon a time an H that color (and two gold H’s) ~ I didn’t realize until the other day I have only one H left and it’s gold. :(
I have 7 different I/9 hooks and they’re all a different color. I feel like this theory is false…maybe it’s because I live in Florida. >.<
