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!
