Thread for Crochet

Knit & Crochet at!I was looking around at the JoAnn online store and noticed that there are quite a few items that you would use for filet crochet projects, such as thread for crochet, steel hooks and yarn. I've given examples of just a few below but you can find much more by browsing their web site.
