In an Interweave Press blog post, Crochet Hook Materials: The Perfect Hook, Toni Rexcoat will answer the above question. The answer may surprise you. She will walk you through the pros and cons of metal, plastic, and wooden hooks. 

When I think about crochet, I think about how my mother always had a crochet hook in her hand. She crocheted lots of vests and afghans. I think she would have loved the one below.
