A New Technique

It’s like a knitting needle and crochet hook went out and got drunk, and nine months later this weird thing came into the world and no one quite knew what it was.  Is it crochet?  Is it knitting?  It’s more like pick up a row of stitches with a knitting needle, and casting them off, then picking up the row again, and casting off, but the process is streamlined if you use a hook and don’t turn your work.

Tunisian Crochet, shown here in the “afghan stitch” – it creates a dense waffle texture that I think will be perfect for washcloths.  I am merely getting frustrated that it doesn’t seem to grow as quickly as the crafts of it’s parents do.

I’ve seen some really beautiful things come from this hook though.  Like this and this.  I also want to learn Broomstick lace, but I think that may happen post-holidays.
