Noro and Debbie Bliss Yarns from Laughing Hens

I recently had the opportunity to work with Laughing Hens to test a few of their yarns for review. This UK company offers high quality yarns from a variety of different brands. They have an interesting crochet-friendly background and I found them very easy to work with.

Fabulous Crochet Playground Swings by Cathy Bertel

When I think of crochet playgrounds, I immediately think of Toshiko Horiuchi MacAdam who began creating them in the 1970s and gained widespread attention for her work a few years ago. I then think of Ernesto Neto and the projects by collectives Numen and Suspension of Disbelief. It would be remiss not to also include the work by artist Cathy Bertel who creates suspended crochet nets wrapped around exercise balls to create interactive swings.
