How we got Hoooked July 17, 2016 10:32 1 Comment
Thursday was one of those lovely afternoons that reminds me why running Craft Club is the coolest job ever. Hannah and I spend the afternoon experimenting with making animations and taking delivery of a stream of parcels full of crafty goodies.
Starting London Craft Club has been a crazy journey, and one of the best things about it has been discovering that the craft community's warmth and friendliness extends to the businesses involved in it too. The team at Hoooked has supported us from almost the beginning, with helpful advice, patterns, ideas and yarn to experiment with.
What I love so much about the Hoooked range (apart from the enormungous choice of colour and texture) is the way it knits or knots up. This week at the 50+ Show we met tons of dedicated, skilled crafters and they were fascinated with Hoooked Zpagetti. Our Arm Knitting sessions were mobbed with people, proving that even the most experienced crafters can still get excited about new crafty finds!
So scroll down for some of my favourite examples of how using jersey yarn for simple modern patterns give stylish results. It's super fast to work with, and it's one of the few crafty supplies that is genuinely recyled, being made from the jersey offcuts of the fashion industry.
We do macrame with it - it's lovely to work with as it's soft...
And here's my favouite speedy knit project ever created by the brilliant Riannon Selcuk
