Repair and personalise a broken crochet hook and love your craft again!
I had a crochet hook with a broken end that stabbed me every time I tried to use it, I also had some sugru to test out and I decided to see if I could combine the two. Turns out I could and now I have a crochet hook that not only doesn't cause me injury it looks pretty too! You could use this tutorial on a non broken hook just to pretty it up.
