New Things

I've been crocheting ever since I was a little girl, so it was something of a shock and a delight when I downloaded a pattern from Raverly and discovered that I had no idea how to pull it off.

I had never even heard of the Tunisian stitch before.

It even require a completely separate hook.

Despite my instantaneous excitement I only just got around to trying this new genre of awesome.  I  started off with a simple scarf, with an edge to add some interest.

I was planning on adding there  some unorthodox pizazz as well but the idea got away from me and turned into something stupid.

The stitch itself is really easy, and I simply adore the variation of line on the opposing sides. The fabric works up a little stiff, but it doesn't make the scarf uncomfortable.

I'm already excited to try fancier things.

For instance,  did you know that some afghan hooks come with double ends?
