Wildly Tunisian


Originally uploaded by CMHS yarn & designs (laurie wheeler).

As you know my latest obsession (crochet-wise) is with the Tunisian Simple Stitch. Darla Fanton opened a whole new world up for me in her Tunisian Entreloc class, though I don’t think she would have thought this is where it would take her students!

But the idea of being able to make gorgeous blocks of seemingly woven ribbons, in a wild array of textures and colors just has me going gaga over this stitch!

a) I so do NOT have to warp my loom. (Which I hate with a capital “H”, that’s warping not the loom)

b) I don’t have to use my cool Tunisian hooks if I don’t want to! I can use any ol’ hook!

This piece is part of a larger project I am making for my Mother in Law’s Christmas gift.

I love crochet and hand-spinning. I am visually impaired, and thus extremely tactile. I love texture and color, and creating things that feel good, and look good has made life richer and warmer.
