Hand crafts to enhance machine knitting projects
The club enjoyed a lively meeting when we five members showed different hand crafts useful to enhance machine knitting. Swiss darning, crochet edging, tatting, bobbin lace, and kumihimo- Japanese braiding, made up a fascinating evening.
Flo (94), an avid and accomplished machine knitter for many years, inspired us all with her beautiful bobbin lace which she had also made over the years.
Rachael got us to try our hands at Kumihimo; great fun and very relaxing. It gave us all a new twist on cords and edgings.
Helen, Alison and Margaret gave us new insights into Swiss Darning, Crochet Edging and Tatting
