In my last blog post I talked about my new found Tunisian crochet skills and how I was about to pass on what I’d learnt in a workshop for my fellow Knit Nighters. I thought I’d pop back in here to update how it went – just look at these photos of their work!
Learning new things is challenging and within, what is primarily a group of ‘knitters’, I was impressed at everyone’s keenness to have a go at Tunisian crochet. For one of my friends, it brought back lovely memories of crocheting as a child in Indonesia, where she would make some extra pocket money crocheting edges onto table cloths. Many of the participants have been doing more Tunisian crochet after our session and have even emailed me photos of their results, which I think is a sure sign of a successful workshop!
As for me, well I’ve just bought an 8mm Tunisian hook so that I can start making a bean bag cushion cover. I just need to make sure I put aside some “Tunisian crochet time”, who knows, maybe I’ll even take it to Knit Night?
Happy Knitting … or crocheting,
