haken is hot ~ crochet is hot
Today my friend Arjanne came to visit me. She wants to learn crochet! We started with the basic technique, which seemed rather difficult if you've never touched a crochet needle. After a few hours and a lot of coffee and sighing, there was suddenly a 'piece of crochet'. Arjanne was very pleased and proud and went home with her first handmade square.
I learned to crochet at primary school when I was about 8 years old and did not like it at all. I've never crocheted until some years ago, when I made my first stool of recycled wood. I figured it would be nice to make a retro crochet cover on it; as a matter of fact the wood & wool stool was created.
Next month my home is published in a Dutch interior magazine 101 Woonideeën. It´s an article on my interior (binnenkijker ~ inside viewer) and little company and because crochet is hot I give a mini course for those who want to learn crochet.
The give away in the December issue of 101 Woonideeën is a beautiful lantern, designed by Jurianne Matter.
