Crocheted hats, scarves etc. I refer to myself as a hooker so have no problem with the name being slightly, er, risque!
Thoughts, please?

By hook or crook

Minion Fri 15-Nov-13 19:10:21

Marske hookers?

Our local cycle race, sponsored by Tetley's whose factory is here, is actually called the Tour de Teesside.

I think its important to have the word crochet in the name because that is what people will search for whether its online or in the town/village. I would go for e.g. Chicester Crochet Collective. Good luck with your venture. My sister, early 40's and one of my colleagues who has recently retired are crazy about crochet - hey another name idea - Crazy about Crochet! LOL good luck, let us know how you get on.

The xxxx Company is the best suggestion. Puns are awful!! Cheesy cheap and twee

I like The Crochet Company. Or like someone else said a reference to where made, so King St Knits

Canny is quite a way north of us.
Great ideas, ladies. Thanks

LimitedEditionLady Thu 14-Nov-13 23:11:34

Omg someone said hook ewe but i didnt read all the thread before,spooky!

LimitedEditionLady Thu 14-Nov-13 23:09:54

Does this make sense...

Hooked on Ewe

cosy crochet.

'Canny crochet' would add in the north east connection

Minion- tell the Smoggie DH that I'm currently between Yarm and Stockton. I work on the coast but not quite far enough south to be in Woollyback country! Woollyback could work as a name in other regions but not here! We use it the way the Irish use Kerryman and the English talk about the Irish!

How about 'The Yarm Yarn' (not sure where in smoggie-land you live and I know Yarm is more Stockton)

I do like the crochety lady too smile

Minion Thu 14-Nov-13 21:41:46

Yay for smoggies!
Yarn in yarm?
I've got the husband, a fellow smogmonster thinking on. He's normally quite good with these!

Something along the lines of Woven Whimsies, or Whimsical Weaves (this sounds like you make wigs though!). It needs work, but I like the reference to your pieces being a bit more whimsical than the norm.
