“A touch of Boho, a pinch of Hippy and a dash of Magic”

Shop Announcement:

Autumn is in the air! I adore this season with its fantastic array of colours, the weird and wonderful fungi sprouting out of the ground like magic, the darker evenings, the smell of wood burning stoves...love, love, love it!

I'll be launching my Winter Collection 15th October! Follow me on Instagram for sneaky peeks...

My area has gone into another Lockdown, in keeping with reducing risk, my posting day will be a Thursday.

About BytheCrookofmyHook

Freeform Crochet Art - Not your Granny's Crochet.

Long term craft loving grumpy pagan living in a commune near Liverpool city centre. I mostly satisfy my creative urges with freeform crochet, some of which I have exhibited. The photo above is when my co-op hosted an exhibition on Political Ideals, I hooked a large abstract vagina with a felted embryo inside. Viewers were literally invited to put their hands "inside my vagina". Appealed to my sense of ridiculousness and also indirectly symbolised consent. The main inspiration for this piece was how becoming a mother had informed my political ideals.
I've exhibited a few other pieces and also being involved with the Liverpool Independents Biennial with a yarn bombing piece in my local park and have plans for further yarn bombing.
How did I get here? Well, that is a long story but basically, I grew up next to a commune in Yorkshire and my brother learned to crochet from them, and he taught me. I've been crocheting now over 30years, mostly making it up as I go along..then I discovered freeform crochet and my heart sang. Freeform crochet is a bit like painting with yarn - but it can also be sculptural too, I adore it. I often say I can just about making anything with crochet - do feel free to challenge me.
