Hyperbolic Friday 29th @ The Yarn Room

The Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef is slowly but truly starting to shape up. Submissions are making their way to me at The Yarn Room and with those submissions I made a little teaser reef in the window the other day in the hope that it will inspire others to submit pieces too. Friday January 29th will be Hyperbolic Friday at The Yarn Room where I hope to inspire more crocheters to make and embellish more pieces.

There will be tools and some yarn at the The Yarn Room work table in Ashford, Co Wicklow from 10.30 am to 5.00 pm and I hope you will join us!

Crochet hyperbolic crochet coral reef Workshop

Woollen Reef

IMG_7364smallWe had a great turnout of crocheters around the work table yesterday at The Yarn Room all making Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef. There was great imagination and re-kindling of skill too. Unfortunately, I only got around to taking pictures after dark, but the picture shows the baby steps of The Great Irish Hyperbolic Crochet Reef. We will have another day in January where I hope more will present great big, beautifully embellished pieces.

IMG_7347smallToday I am preparing for the three workshops happening at The Science Gallery tomorrow where I hope we can turn some of these beautiful towers of Irish yarn from Cushendale Wollen Mills into pretty pieces of coral reef. As they tower on the worktable I feel their beauty is all ready to be unleashed. I just need to print out some patterns and a few other bits on the project and then we should be ready to go. The rest of my day will be all hook!

Hyperbolic Skinny Scarves

I am working on a bunch of ruffled skinny scarves for the Christmas Spirit Market in Tinahely on Sunday December 13th. It’s great fun and I find the combination of Artesano Aran weight, a size 8 mm hook and the hyperbolic technique works a treat. I finish each off with mohair for added effect. IMG_7343

You are invited to come along to Hypberbolic Day at The Yarn Room on Friday December 4th from 10 – 5.30 and make your own contribution of crochet for the Irish Hyperbolic Crochet Coral Reef.

The scarves are colourful for the winter and fun to make, they are nice and snug and warm and soft to wear! What’s not to like?
