While I was at Rio Hill I went to the Joann to pick up a bamboo crochet hook...except lo and behold, they didn't have them.
They're on the website and they have a hundred plastic and aluminum hooks, but no bamboo in store. Yet they have almost an entire WALL of bamboo knitting needles.
How fair is that?
So to the internet I go, unless I find time to go to one (or both) of the two LYSs. The only problem with this is hours (hard because of work and sleep) and because they're very knit-centric. While that's fine because we all use the same yarn, we don't all use the same tools. I don't know if they're as likely to carry ANY hooks, period, much less bamboo or wood.
