When we crocheted in Morocco


We couldn't look on while they prepared for their Cool Crochet workshop in Marrakech.  We wanted go come along!

It's just a bit...far.  And at least one long haul and another connecting flight away. 
No, we had to make a plan and join in.

So we went to Morocco!  In Pretoria :-)

Thanks to Moroccan House, we could.   

A group of hooking friends crossed out last Friday in our diaries, and escaped to a place of colour and texture, aromas and tastes, and will definitely go back for more of the same.  

We enjoyed:

We walked through the showroom and wondered what we could get for the house...

We hooked and chatted and met new friends from Holland and Mauritius and locally and caught up with each other's work:

We're already planning a next visit.

But first...we're going to Holland!
(And maybe to the real Marrakech one day)

Read the beautiful post Hilda wrote after this morning

Awesome! I wish I could've come, but that would take me a long haul flight to Joberg and a ride to Pretoria ;-) PFF!
BTW - If anyone ever come up with a South African crochet trip, I am so there! (After winning the lottery)

What a stimulating feast of forms and colours to inspire your crochet! A perfect venue idea. Thank you for sharing your pictures so we can also be inspired. :-)
Best wishes always, Jodie xx
