I've been crocheting for 35 years and make lots of different items from baby items to blankets, scarves. I also give lessons in it. This is the variety of crochet hooks that we use. They are made from anything from rubber to stainless steel to sterling silver and just about everything in between. You can even crochet with your finger if you want. In a few minutes, I will be showing you different stitches and how you can make some items yourself.
