It is finished. My tunisian knit crochet dish clothe turned hot pat is done. I finished it with the 2 rows of mistaken tunisian knit, and 3 rows of basic tunisian crochet. And least I forget a slip stitch all the way around. I did it with and H hook with the sugar and cream cotton made it very thick. If you look close enough you will see that on the 4 or 5 row of tunisian knit I increased a stitch. I will look at it as a learning curve, and strive to do better next time. LOL Posted by Hello

New day New stitch

Was cruising the internet and stopped in at Annies Attic to see what was new. She has great stuff. Checked out the Tunisian Crochet section. I know how to do the basic Tunisian Stitch, But I didn't know how to do the Tunisian Knit Stitch. She has great instructions and Pictures on how to do it at http://www.anniesattic.com/pages/etc.html (Hope I don't hear the cyber police coming after me)
So , Guess what? I now know how to do the Tunisian Knit Stitch. Yeah!!! For me. I am using Sugar and Cream Cotton and making a dish clothe with it.

I have added two more inches to my pillowghan in the last two days as well. I need to change colors on it and I don't want to go out to the garage and get a new color. It is cold outside.

5 1/2 x 4 1/2
219 sts x 108 dc rows
18" x 18"
72 sts x 36 dc rows
I started one for one of my Daughters. She wanted all green with smiley face pocket, I don't have enough of the green she wants so we have decided to make it in stripes of all colors. I am thinking of the 8 basic colors going from dark to light. Black, brown, green, blue, purple, red, orange, yellow, and white. Ok so I counted wrong, 9 colors. What color is left out in the basic 8 crayola box? Is it white or purple?
I think I will make the pillow in the green and yellow that she originally wanted. Still have to work out the graph for the smiley face.
I have completed 219 sts x 8 dc rows. That is only 5 1/2' x 4". Long ways yet to go. Great project for watching movies. Like the "Return of the King" extended version.

BRRrrrrrrr it is getting cold

Weather is perfect for crocheting a nice warm blanket. It has went from rain to snow. One of my yahoo groups are discussing the pillowghan (spelling). It sounds wonderful. I think that is what I am going to start crocheting this afternoon. Since we have moved we have long commutes to work. I think we need some afghans for the cars and these sound like the perfect fit. Plus they will be nice and warm for watching T.V. LOL

Always the Student

Well I tried my first picture and see that I need to learn a lot more about doing this stuff. Feel free to give me some instructions on how to do this better.
Well at least I have found most of my yarn stored in the garage during our move. Still have to find my needles and patterns. Need to organize and set up an area.

Still have not finished unpacking. Haven't found my UFOs. But I need to do something so I have started crocheting dishclothes. Mainly need them as I haven't yet unpacked my others either.
I think I am having a little to much fun playing with this blog and learning how to make it work. LOL

Life is full of learning

Monday night was UFO nite. Not flying Saucers unfinished objects. Which of course I didn't get to as I have not unpacked them. Am trying to figure out how to place pictures on here of things I have made in the past that have not been given away. Bear with me as I learn how to do this.

As the New Year Begins

I am wishing everyone is having a great day at the beginning of a new year. I am enjoying my time with my children and grandchildren as they will go back home and start school next week. I have been reading email from a few of my yahoo groups that have made new years resolutions to organize, and make journals about their crafts. I know that these are great Ideas and will do the same as I unpack from my move we did over the Christmas Holiday. And as I learn about this blogging and learn how to add pics and things I should say this is going to be a very great year. Looking forward to sharing and learning from all.
