Crochet has enjoyed a revival recently and is no longer confined to lace doilies and old-fashioned shawls. Even the Olympic gold medallist Tom Daley is an enthusiast! Vibrant wool skeins produced by indie dyers coupled with an explosion of glorious, innovative patterns have fuelled the trend and for the past three years our Crochet Group members have enjoyed exploring different directions while drinking tea and having a chat! Beginners, too, have come along and in the spirit of u3a skills sharing, have learned the basic stitches from other members of the Group.
But even Tom Daley doesn’t just stick to crochet and in the wake of several requests from knitters asking to join our group, it has been decided to invite anyone interested in crochet OR knitting to come along to our first meeting after the summer break, when we can ascertain whether a combined group is viable.
