Every so often I am inspired by alternative materials for my crochet, it might be the texture or the colour that sets my imagination off, I have often used polythene because of the sound it makes when handled. You might find it odd to be inspired by sound but my husband is a musician so sound is part of my daily equation.
Recently I went to a builders suppliers where I came across a spool of Manila Twine - I adore the scent of Manila…Continue

Here were some of the most colorful answers people shared:…Continue

I entered 3 crocheted items and 1 tatted, going to take some pictures tomorrow and honestly I never care if I win big, I am more interested in making items to really bring some light to what you can really do with crochet and that is EXACTLY what I did. A cardigan (Doris Chan pattern), Shawl (anohibi pattern) and a necklace (me pattern) and the tatted item is the Ann Bruvold dragon. Will keep you posted on the results.
