you all know i have a love affair with knitting & sewing but i also adore crochet. it's the one craft that often get's pushed aside for me though. it's not that i love it less, or don't enjoy it as much, i just for some reason always have my knitting & sewing battling it out. so in honor of throwing some crochet love your way i asked one of my good friends rebecca of the blog and shop "nook" to come give us a fun, easy and very fun tutorial over on my other blog "versus" on how to make one of my favorite crocheted things - coasters!
she knits faster than anyone i know (her hands are like a speedy blur at our knit nights) and i know a lot of knitters. she also seems to have some strange knack for knitting in superhero style...she can be baking bread or making dinner - knitting, talking to me on the phone - knitting, i bet she even knits on the potty..lol. needless to say if there's a chance my bud can pick up her sticks she will. she's got an adorable etsy shop filled with some of her handmade goodies, a pretty blog and if you live in my city (victoria, bc) she also teaches some pretty rad classes at the cloth castle. check out her fall listings..where else can you take lessons for jane richmond's super stylish patterns? plus you get to hang with rebecca and take it from me....she's super fun to be around. i heart her. she feeds me and makes me coffee....a lot.
so get those hooks & yarn out and get ready to whip up some jardain coasters! happy hooking..lol.
