Last night’s S ‘n B was very nice and quaint. It was just three of us there. We shared left-over Tu B’Shvat dried fruits and my Chocolate Babka for our munchies. Since there were only three of us there this time, I was also able to give attention to the two others individually – one a crocheter and the other a simple knitter.
I took the chance to share Cro-Knit and Tunisian Crochet. I brought an afghan I’m finishing up in the Afghan Stitch (also known as Tunisian Crochet) and a hat/neckwarmer that I made using a double-ended crochet hook. I gave a quick demonstration on the basic Tunisian Crochet stitch and shared a small book of Tunisian Crochet patterns.
I helped the other gal with her shrug pattern. It seems there was a problem in her keeping the correct amount of stitches. I figured something was going wrong with the yarn-overs. This is the first pattern she has had to use yarn-over’s. I hope she will now get the hang of yarn-overs and give some knitted lacework a try!
