Crocheting with string…

I’m looking into crocheting with different materials. Using the same stitches, but trying to find materials that are more durable or less expensive  or more suited to the purpose…

Here is my first idea… making a durable table mat, which should be somewhat heatproof, using string. It is just parcel string, I found it in Tesco for about two euro a roll.

My little sister has taken to calling me nerdy Granny when she wants to rise me, because of my apparently innumerable idiosyncrasies, not least of which are the inexcusable facts that I wear large spectacles and love to crochet and cook.

I continued crocheting on the bus going home. I finished the mat when the roll of string ran out.
