Pat introduced us to yet another new thing — broomstick crochet. It’s done using an oversized knitting needle (or if you want to be truly traditional, a broomstick handle) and a normal crochet hook. Large loops are pulled out over the needle, then slipped off and stitches worked into each loop. “Simple, really.”
Ruby was using a crochet hook for something totally different, a sunflower rag rug. Not quite as efficient as a latch rug hook, but does the trick.
We all know being organized can make life simpler, but how many of us are ever this fabulously organized when it comes to our fabrics for foundation piecing?! (Fabric from Jinny Beyer.)
