Yes having been inspired by Coats Crafts UK's post about fiber activist Rockpool Candy and her use of her body and plastic tubing to crochet with I want to make February the month we all challenge ourselves to try new crochet materials. And I'm not just talking about the usual non yarn stuff like cut up plastic bags or rope I mean some real crazy stuff like cooked spaghetti or old shoe laces!
I'm thinking of calling it 'Flipping Febuary' (working title, open to suggestions) and anyone can participate. During February just post a photo of some crochet you've done using any non-yarn material. You don't have to crochet a real item like a blanky or scarf, just crochet a few rows or a square. Make sure to note what material you have used. I encourage you to really see how far you can push the boundaries. The funnier and weirder the better!
I think there should be a prize ( I will put something together) for the craziest post. To select the winner and to make it fair I think we should have like a vote in system. Can we put polls on this site or something that tallies votes???? The voting will be open to everyone followers and participats.
So I hope you all think this is a fun idea too and join in. Let me know what you think and if you want to change or add anything to the challenge.
