During her visits to teach me how to sew (a renaissance bodice -- see the WIP, left), my good friend and the author of Yet Another Creative Blog has been bringing along a scarf she's been working on. (Check out her blog post dated Wednesday, January 19, 2011.)
I can't even begin to tell you how impressed I was with it.
After thinking and stewing about it -- and with no other projects I have the urge to work on (we'll ignore Mom's lace scarf sitting on a stitch holder currently, *POUT*) -- I decided to see if I could conquer this Tunisian Knit Stitch deal. Previously my only venture into afghan-style crochet has been the Tunisian Simple Stitch, which took me much too long to figure out.
This experience was quite different (likely benefiting my previous experience with Tunisian Simple Stitch), resulting in a darn near spontaneous understanding of what I was supposed to do. Without looking at photos or viewing a video. This pleased me greatly.
And so, not wanting to undertake a project too involved, I just started with what will be either a skinny faux knit scarf or a faux knit scarf for the little boy in my life. :) (It's all of 20 stitches wide.)
Pictures will be forthcoming when I'm further along in the project and/or have decided what I'm doing with it. YAY!
