i up and joined my local spinning guild. (boston area spinners and dyers) meetings are closer to where i've just moved, so i thought i'd give it a try. Barbara Clorite was teaching how to spin bouclé, according to the method she learned from Judith MacKenzie-McCuin.
i had not been a fan of the bouclé. i made a sample in class: see image, excuse thread choices :)
i want to like it, (the technique) for some reason. it seems like it has such potential for being crazy. i will experiment some more, but it was nice to take a lesson in how to create it.
and here's an article i wrote for supernaturale exploring contemporary crochet. it has lots of links to people playing around with crochet, if you feel like exploring.
