Crochet Quote: Crochet with anything!

Today’s crochet quote is by Margaret Hubert in the introduction to her book The Complete Photo Guide to Crochet. It celebrates the people who crochet with plarn, tarn and other non-yarn materials:

“Crocheters do not just use yarn; they crochet with every imaginable form of fiber. I have seen items made with kite string, fishing line, wire, rag strips, and paper strips. I’m sure there are some fibers used for crocheting that I have yet to see.”

Are you someone who crochets with alternative materials or do you just use yarn? Although I’ve worked with some others I mostly prefer to just work with yarn but I love what people are doing with other materials!
