Tunisian Crochet: My new yarns’ happy home...
...It’s the best of weaving without the loom, knitting without the extra needles, and crocheting without the doilies!
It’s been a long, sub-zero-type cold winter here in the San Luis valley of southern Colorado. Nothing really new about that. However, what is new is gaining a love of crochet over the last months. To be more precise, Tunisian crochet. I had seen the term before, and it registered in my brain with images of some long-lost culture somewhere.. And probably written in hieroglyphics. Definitely not interested.
But then (I just love But-thens), I happened on a smiling, bubbly beautiful face on Insta. There, in her bright, shiny, and invitingly colorful studio she beaconed me into an experience which was like a joy-filled yarn-tagious Happy Hour with your besties!
Toni Lipsey of TL YarnCrafts has, over this winter, managed to inspire me to do a plethora of feats that I would have not believed possible. Like “crochet” for one! She has motivated me to crochet a garment for myself (what?); complete a whole Mastery course in Tunisian crochet (I struggle to completely make a whole bed); complete a crochet-along; buy some very cool tools; invest the time in learning more about my business; and write & actually publish an original Tunisian crochet pattern
