Old Lady Craft Day

August 25th, 2014 No Comments

Here you will find the projects we worked on during our monthly Old Lady Crafty Days.

What is Old Lady Crafty Day? It’s not just for old ladies! It’s where we get together to knit, crochet, tatt, or do other easily portable crafts. These are generally thought of as “old lady activities,” hence the name!

We have some brand new crocheters, and some slightly more experienced crocheters. The same goes for knitting. Each month we pick a project and everyone can work on theirs together.  It’s not a requirement, but it’s fun to see everyone’s spin on the same project, we can help each other out if we get stuck, and is good practice!

Here’s the projects we have done so far.

Great beginner project. Teaches single crochet, increases, and decreases. Page also has a link to a video tutorial for the visual learners.
