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

Our trip to Upington and Kuruman went well. There are a few more people in South Africa who know how to make a double stitch, or a dubbelknoop. In Upington a group of 15 met in a well stocked habedashery shop, as you can see from the photos. One lady decided half way that tatting is not for her and left. I was quite surprised because she was doing well, but hey, no one is obliged to tat! Everyone else learnt how to flip and made good progress. It was quite a big group, so just as well Linda was with me to help. In a big group, some learn quicker than others, which has the advantage that learners help each other.
The Kuruman group was smaller, only 6, which meant it was easier to help individually.
We enjoyed the trip. I don't know whether all the participants will carry on with tatting, but some certainly will.
