>Designing From the Hip

>I don’t remember if any one of us actually said this, but we must have been thinking, “Hey, kids! Let’s put on a show!”. It was with the exuberance and naivete of a gang of kids in an Andy Hardy movie that a group of us crochet designers/friends put our collective heads together and dreamed up this project:

Astounding, but here’s the proof. We did it. Crochet Belts From the Hip is available now for $15. Download it using the link at left or visit our publishing group.

My small contribution to our book, aside from the aggravation and heartfailure I may have caused my fellow authors, is the design Hip Hemp Belt. Using sample yarns generously donated by Lanaknits and Kreinik (pressed into my eager hands at 2007 TNNA Columbus), this belt is worked in Tunisian (afghan) crochet, with tapestry-ish embellishment, a major departure from my usual MO. But that’s what small projects are for… trying out new techniques and new materials… boldly going where your hook has not gone before.
