I hadn’t yet spent my Christmas cash from my Mother-in-law and so a couple weeks ago, I did some Internet window shopping. One of my purchases was this book….
Trying something new is another way to say ‘Experiment’.
Here is a stitch I decided on. The book description said there were 61 stitches to choose from. This is a Tunisian Pearl Stitch and is supposed to be one of the simpler ones.
Here’s the foundation row. It is twisted on my needle and that is a testament to the fact that I’m new at this. Also this is probably as close to knitting as I’ll ever come.
At this point I’m still not sure how it’s going to look like the picture. I learn that I’m not using the vertical posts, but the horizontal ones. oops.
I kept going and never did redo (also called rip out) that first bad row. Adding character as I go I suppose.
What do I think of Tunisian Crochet?
- Too soon to tell.
- Going to need longer needles for any hope of making a blanket(afghan)
- Need to wonder about using cotton thread versus acrylic since I could use the stretch about now.
- Did you know that even though you don’t have carpal tunnel, you can still have digits go numb?
Point to Ponder: Be careful of Experiments!!
