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

DrSeuss Thu 14-Nov-13 23:31:56

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

rabbitlady Thu 14-Nov-13 22:56:33

cosy crochet.

'Canny crochet' would add in the north east connection

DrSeuss Thu 14-Nov-13 22:46:45

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!

FTRsGotAShinyNewNN Thu 14-Nov-13 21:46:55

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!

MorningHasBroken Thu 14-Nov-13 21:36:59

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.
