To tat or not to tat…

Teacher

noun

1.

a person who teaches or instructs, especially as profession; instructor.

 

My coworker expressed an interest in tatting the other day. She crochets at work while I knit (this is the coworker that taught me to granny square). Most people think tatting looks pretty cool, but most write it off as “too hard” or “too small.” Not so, my coworker. She looked at it and thought, “Hey, I bet I could do that.” So yesterday morning as I was getting ready for work I put my shuttles and some crochet cotton in my purse for her.

Excitement and much learning ensued. I taught her the basics of tatting with a shuttle, but then an internet search brought her to ask about needle tatting. She just happened to have a long tapestry needle on hand, so I taught her how to needle tat as well! I don’t think I could have asked for a better student.
