Tunisian Crochet In The Round

Part 1: Take 2

I invested in "Lily Chin’s video tutorial ":http://www.interweavestore.com/two-color-tunisian-crochet-in-the-round-groupedyesterday and am so glad that I did! She is a great teacher and there are a lot of tips in the video beyond that of the...

Part 2: where to start

In my last blog about my tunisian journey I announced that I had invested in Lily Chin’s Video and was very impressed. This second round of interest was inspired by a creation by Vivian Knits .. it is so beautiful (photo by Vivian) So…...

Part 3: It begins

Well, I’ve taken the plunge! Now, I’m not going to tell you what I’ve decided to make, in case it doesn’t look like the intention and it becomes a back-up plan. So, when I am finished, the creation will be exactly what it was supposed to be,...

Part 4: a pause, an experiment, and a project

Well, it has been an interesting weekend. The “project” was going along not too badly. As I made my way through it, I noted several changes that I would do next time. I still hadn’t decided exactly what it was going to be. At first it was...

Part 5: A Square In The Round

Part 8: My Square - Part III

Feb. 20/16 My afghan is progressing nicely. I am almost done (well, getting close to) the completion of the second pattern. I have some ideas for what comes next…. my challenge has been my available yarn. I thought I had lots of that...

Part 9: Afghan Update

I haven’t touched my crochet hooks for a couple weeks. Between not feeling well and having a major non-crochet project that I’ve been working on, I have had no time, energy, passion, or need to crochet. Yesterday, however, I had “me time”. I...

Part 10: "Happenstance"

After about 70 hours of crocheting and over 1200 stitches of Tunisian Crochet, I have completed my experimentation with 2-colour, double-ended Tunisian Crochet. It began as an attempt to do corners and progressed to do the reversible technique....
