Great job, bethntim! And aren't you thinking, "That was easy!" now that you've done it? I still don't know why I waited so long to try it.

At school during the half days (we have several scattered throughout the year), students work on a year-long project of their choosing and present what they've learned at the end of the year. Once kids get into their projects, I have time to work on one of my own. I was planning on learning how to play the spoons, but I don't think I can do that while I have 16-18 kids in my classroom. I think I might give broomstick lace a try while I'm supervising them.

I thought I had a list of the techniques I wanted to try, but I guess I never posted one so here it is!

1. Filet crochet (in a more complicated pattern... like the dragonfly shawl pattern I have saved)
2. Crocodile stitch
3. Broomstick lace
4. Overlay crochet
5. Beaded crochet (I have a kit for this somewhere)
6. Color pooling
7. C2C crochet
8. Tunisian crochet (I've only done simple stitch)
9. Tapestry crochet (something besides a dish cloth)
10. Crochet cables
11. Reversible Intarsia (which I had never heard of before, so thanks for listing that technique jellybean89)
12. Hairpin lace

So, Im finding broomstick lace to be very slow going. Has anyone else tried it? If so, any tips?

Of course, it could be because I have worked on it with a room full of 11 & 12 year olds...

I was just procrastinating (in classic fashion), and scrolling through my collection of Craftsy classes. It turns out that I have a class on broomstick lace! So, Im going to follow along with the first project and see what I can learn from it.

Can't wait to see the results!  I've wanted to try broomstick lace, but have never gotten around to it. 

Currently working on a 13th Doctor Scarf for myself, to wear while watching the New Year's special.  It did require me to learn to do the moss (or linen) stitch, but since that stitch is just sc, ch 1, sk 1, repeated forever, it wasn't really going 'beyond the basics'.  Since I have all the colors to make the Doctor's pretty rainbow scarf, I'm considering trying filet crochet with the leftovers, to try making a DW/13th Doctor themed shawl or wrap.

I love the look of the linen/moss stitch, and you're right, it's a simple stitch pattern to do. It's a favorite of mine because it has a very crisp look to it. I can't wait to see how your scarf turns out!

And, the first project in the broomstick lace class is an eyeglass pouch. It might get repurposed for something else because my eyeglasses need a little more protection. I need to download the pattern to see if I have any yarn on hand (might be a good use for some of that random DGY I have floating around).
