Crochet 2008


I only crochet in leap years and this is my project for 2008. For some reason, knitting relaxes me and crocheting makes me tense. Anyway, in March the Jericho Fiber Arts Guild meeting was on hyperbolic crochet. I started this there. The yarn is worsted weight acrylic. The beads are #6 seed beads. It has an increase in every stitch.

I was working on this in the doctor’s office and was asked, “What are you making.” “It’s hyperbolic crochet,”I answered. “Yes, but what is it?” the nurse answered. She had me there. I had no answer, but I love the thing. It’s cute and fits nicely in the palm of your hand.

What would you do with it? I would love to know. You could comment on the blog or email me at closeknitfriends@gmail.com
