New skills

 My newest venture into the world of crochet is Tunisian Crochet. Some may call it the Afgan Stitch.. however its uses are more diverse then what the Afgan stitch implies. Tunisian crochet uses a long hook with a stopper at the end, kind of like a knitting needle, but not. The results are a beautiful fabric that looks almost exactly like knit! The above pictures are of my practice swatch. I don't have any photos of my first project which is still in the works. When it's completed I'll post a picture of it with it's handsome recipient. :-)
