Crafternoon session #3 knit & crochet

The third of our crafternoon sessions – knitting & crochet. Started with the obligatory coffee, and a worthy distraction to Guthrie & Ghani. The wonderfully wooly emporium of Lauren Guthrie, a finalist in The Great British Sewing Bee. We all left with wool which subliminally seemed to match our outfits : )
We all came with high hopes of pom pom bunting, funky footwear and ideas for crochet cushions…what we left with was something all together very different, but from small seeds…
Laura started by continuing her menagerie of mice to include an octopus.
The resident wool terrorist helped to make lovely neat wollen balls look more like cooked spagetti.
Abby had an awesome cotton yarn from Tiger, in the most amazing hot pink and practised double crochet
Jo Jo practised casting on and slip stitches. There was plenty of face pulling all round, as we wrestled with the yarn and hook combo.
Some examples of the finished squares – lets face it, we were always being a litlte ambitious. Always good to aim high – cat pom poms/squares/scarf potentials were created instead. Though this little granny square may grow up to be a blanket one day : )
