Crochet for Problem-solving

Our kitchen table needed covering–we don’t eat at it much, it mostly holds groceries and boxes and backpacks and such.  But we can’t use tablecloths, because a member of our household pulls them down, every time.  So, I was thinking, “fitted tablecloth”? Do they make such a thing?  And then… can I make such a thing?  I might have been able to sew a cover, but decided that it’s easier for me to crochet.  I used various fabric strips from Trash for Teaching (of course), so it worked up quickly, and the results are stretchy enough to hug the tabletop, and cushion it from any sharp corners. 

Yes, it does look like I yarnbombed my own kitchen, but that’s a bonus for me.  Speaking of which, there’s still time to go see Surroundings, the current installation by Yarn Bombing Los Angeles, at the Manhattan Beach Creative Arts Center
