Decision Day


Dum, Dum, Dum (queue dramatic music). Today I need to make some decisions regarding 2 projects that need to be stitched pronto! I've taken a few days off with the kids having fun with a little crochet thrown in here or there. Now is the time to take what's been percolating in my head and get it to happen in yarn form.

A question was asked about the Tunisian 'Patina' Crochet A long. Indeed, the pattern version published by Inside Crochet either in hardcopy or digital download are in UK terminology. Frankly, I don't think there is much difference between the UK terms and the US terms for Tunisian crochet. In the PDF download I am selling through here and Ravelry, I started from scratch and re-wrote the pattern using all the US terms. Get your yarn ready, we start on Sept 1.

Feel free to comment here about your goals or join us in my Ravelry group where you can share your goals for the CAL. (Ravelry is free).

Uh oh, I don't have a photo ready... let's see what I can find for you. OK, above is a swatch of a Tunisian baby/toddler sweater that I am designing for self-publish, as soon as I can get around to it. I will get to use my Denise Interchangeable crochet hooks to work this top-down raglan sweater. (It's another easy two-row repeat).

Ohhh it looks so cute!

I'm looking forward to the TCAL! Gotta test out some yarns to see which I like the best!

I love this swatch!! I would love to make a toddler sweater with this stitch - but I'll probably have to make it in pink :o)
