crochet

I have been crocheting for the last 5 years, seduced by the beautiful afghans I found on Pinterest. The thing I love about crochet is that each square worked on is little piece of art. The play of colour and texture excites my senses. I like to mix up my squares in a project to add interest and depth to the design. I often use 2 yarns held together to achieve a marled effect, and I crochet with a lot of hand dyed yarns to create a one off piece of work. I would encourage experimentation, both with yarn weights, colour and fibre content. Don’t be afraid to add pops of bold colour, force yourself out of your comfort zone, there are so many possibilities out there…
