FO Friday--Tunisian Crochet, Hexipuffs, and More
One of my goals for 2012 is to learn Tunisian crochet, and possible create a Tunisian crochet project. At my visit to Strings and Things yesterday, I purchased a Tunisian Crochet hook and talked to L about my desire to learn Tunisian crochet. She told me that it was very easy and not worry about it. I was still a bit mystified by Tunisian crochet, but as with all things yarn related, I decided to dive right in.
I found the Tunisian crochet CAL at KRW Knitwear Studio earlier this month, and it looked like a great way to learn. But because I have a closet over-flowing with bags (sorry Hubs), I've decided to adjust the square sizes to 6", and use these in my friendship afghan from the Granny Square Swap on Ravelry. Here it is, my first ever Tunisian crochet square, and as L said, it really was easy. I also found the back and forth action very addicting and fun.
Next up, 3 hexipuffs to eventually make a Beekeeper's Quilt, or perhaps something slightly less ambitious. Now I'm wondering if it's fair to count squares and hexipuffs as finished projects. They are technically tiny parts of BIG projects, but they feel like little finished projects.
And in case these don't count as finished objects, here is a picture of some raw pepita brittle that I made in my dehydrator. My husband and children are very happy that I am currently on a snack foods kick.
