Experimental Freeform Crochet

I’ve been inspire by the hats made by Heather Lightbody, otherwise referred to as Girl with a Hook. She is a spinner and art yarn creator who makes these crazy hats using free-form crochet.

I’ve been knitting a few years, but crocheting is still pretty new to me and I continue to have to look up terms beyond a double crochet and be cautious to watch out for the differences in US vs. British terms. But I find her hats so fascinating…art and craft mixed with sculptural qualities and unusual!  She’s teaching a class a Madison Wool in CT in March which I’m still thinking about going to. I think it would be fun! Part spinning and part free form crochet. I don’t always have time to do things I love and it’s nice to be able to try and get away for something fun especially when you can give your full attention to it! I went to the Pluckyfluff class last year for my birthday, which was great. I had wanted to take a class from her since I started spinning. My big plan, as I turn the big 4-0 this year is to maybe taking a weaving class in VT…so that would kind of eliminate the other 2 workshops from my fiber diet….it all comes down to school, work, schedules etc…to be continued!
