As a start the new project in Accrington, I have been looking at a few books which have been pushed my way through the knitting and crochet networks over here in Salford.

A good friend, and crochet enthusiast Roger Newton  has loaned me 2 books all about the wonderful art of free formed crochet. Having spent quite a long time sifting through the many wonderful images and texts, I have pulled a few out to share with you, which I will definitely been using as inspiration when building the crochet art works for display.

I've scanned a few images to share with you...
