You Get What You Pay For
I had previously purchased a set of 10 Tunisian hooks with cables online for £2.49. I tried to make a top out of some lovely linen yarn and found the hooks were always splitting the thread and I was always fighting it. I decided to try the the Knit pro Tunisian hooks and cables. An hour after the knit pro cables arrived I threw the cheap set in the garbage. You really do get what you pay for when purchasing tools and fibre. You do not save any money buying cheap.
