My project is to take that design a step further and make a locally-sourced (local to New Hampshire), self-supporting crocheted yurt out of hand-felted cording approximately 1.5 – 2 inches thick."
Her process looks so fantastic!
She met the sheep...
Felted the wool into a giant cord...
She even whittled her own Crochet hook!
After felting the cord she realized that it would take a tree sized hook so she's decided to crochet the yurt with her HANDS. I've been made fun of by my family for crocheting a hat with my fingers. So, I can't wait to tell them someone else is as crazy as I am.
It's going to take a LOT of wool to make a full blown Yurt. So... Kate is accepting donations. If you'd like to help check out her project countdown and donation page at Kickstart.com.
If you can't tell... I am SUPER excited about seeing this project unfold. No Wait... better yet... FOLD, into lots of lovely knots that make a house : )
