It’s been two months since the beaded ring debacle, and tonight we’re giving this craft club idea another try. I’ve volunteered to teach the group Tunisian crochet.
It’s important for everyone to leave with a finished thing, so I’ve been trying to boil it down to something fast and easy that isn’t dreadfully boring. Over a few evenings last week, inspired in part by this and this, I worked up these little coasters, deploying different combinations of simple stitch and purl stitch, as well as playing around with stripes and the 3-color technique. They could be blocked much more effectively — I just gave them a quick steam bath — but they’re kind of charming, right?
I hope so.
