So, I thought I’d pick up tunisian crocheting over the weekend.
Let us never speak of it again.
No, seriously – have you guys tried to learn tunisian? Did it suck? I’m not even sure I was doing it right. The stitches slid around on the hook, got in my way, and when I managed a little swatch, it didn’t really look like the diagram in my book. Tunisian is advertised as crocheting that is ‘more like knitting,’ but now that I know how to knit for real, I’m wondering why I feel the need to pick up a technique that is being so friggin difficult.
I already had the hooks, I picked them up when I was about 13, 14 or so and started a project with the afghan stitch, which I later frogged down to its component parts. So, either I used to be able to do it, I never could figure out how to do it (can’t remember), or I was doing it incorrectly. (That would be my guess :lol:) I definitely have vague memories of the process, because while I was working on it this weekend, I kept thinking “this doesn’t feel right…” and I don’t think that was entirely because it felt nothing like my comfortable rows of single crochet, nor anything like my knitting.
Is anyone else excited that Crochetme is coming out on Saturday? Heeheehee…
