Dance devised by Irene Paterson ...

Dance devised by Irene Paterson with music composed by Calum MacKinnon for Rachel Pusey and Dilip Sequeira when they left Seattle.

The dance name is a very clever play on words, the details of which Irene has kindly explained. Because this departing dancer was quite involved in bell-ringing, she was thereby "hooked" on bells. But that's not all: she is also an avid crocheter, and thus there is a double entendre for the word "hooked." Furthermore the slip-knot figure, not a very common one in SCDs but included in this dance, names also with its double meaning the initial stitches for starting a crocheting project.
