An account of the craftwork I get up to, tatting, spinning, knitting, sewing, whatever

Linda and Marinda were here yesterday. Marinda doesn't want to learn to tat - she says that if she wants something tatted, she'll just ask me to do it! So Linda showed us how to do broomstick crochet. Linda does have a 'broomstick', like a very thick knitting needle, but prefers to use a ruler. The yarn is looped around the ruler and then crocheted off in groups. Hmmm. I wonder how it would look in handspun, handdyed wool? Could there be a tatted version? The very long picots part is easy, how to group them needs some thought.
