Over the last 12 years, I’ve worked in Tunisian crochet a lot. A Whole Lot. I’ve done lots of books and I’ve designed lots of Tunisian crochet pieces. In other words “I was Tunisian crochet before Tunisian crochet was cool.”
I’ve been a member of Ravelry for about three years. I frequent the forums. I see knitters who want to knit something that looks like crochet and I see crocheters who want to crochet something that looks like knit.
Well, I have something to say about all that! Guess what? Unlike what I read many years ago about Tunisian crochet being the red-headed stepchild of knitting and crochet, I see it is a bridge. It is the bridge everyone is looking for.
I can work in Tunisian crochet and produce a fabric that looks like knit and switch to a fabric that looks like crochet, all with one technique.
Leisure Arts recently let the proverbial cat out of the bag that I have a new book and it’s positively making me crazy to have to wait to tell you more about it. But, when you see this new book and the new work that follows it, you will know without a doubt that you must try Tunisian crochet if you haven’t already. I’ll be taking you to new heights in 2012 in Tunisian crochet that have never been seen before and you’re going to love every minute of it!
All the Tunisian crochet work in this post has been published and is currently available. But, just wait to see what I have in store for you in the coming months!
P.S. Some of the things I’m doing in my upcoming work in Tunisian crochet is going to knock your socks off. And, you won’t be able to find your socks for a month because they’re going to be knocked off so far from you.
