I am starting to try some new things as I said I would in an earlier post. I have a pattern for a Bobble Band Dishcloth that I printed out a while ago, but I was slightly intimidated by a complicated looking stitch. The pattern said it was easy enough for beginners and guess what….they were right. As with anything, I just need to try it before I make any judgments on it being too difficult.
The bobbles were actually kind of fun to see them emerge while I was stitching.
I also gave Tunisian Crochet a try. I have seen items made with this technique a number of times and have wanted to try it. Joann’s had all their crochet hooks on sale, so I was able to get a Tunisian Hook on sale for $2.09. Then I searched out a tutorial. NexStitch had a great one! I haven’t tried a project yet, but here is the swatch.
This swatch was made using the Tunisian Simple Stitch. It’s hard to see the detail, but it has a grid-like look to it. It was much easier than I thought (of course…LOL). I am looking forward to finding a pattern that I like and creating a real project and not just a swatch. I may even just try it out on a dishcloth which is always a good project for trying out new stitches.
So that’s what I have to show today, on my first day of the Summer of Learning. 😉 I wonder what I will try next…
