- I decided some time ago that motif crochet has lost its appeal. Why didn’t I stick to this ?!
- Not having done so and started on the CAL, I find I prefer JAYG (join as you go) anyway – which can’t apply to making something whereof the rest of the parts are unknown.
- Tunisian crochet doesn’t seem to like to be made into ‘squares’ (quote marks because they’re rarely equal all ’round). Well .. perhaps that’s a stupid thing to say: if you’re a tunisian professional you might well be able to start at the bottom and crochet up and it looks great.
- I have no need of a blanket; and I don’t have the space to display it (were I able to complete it well enough).
- A blogging friend, the professional Dora Does, has written of her gradual separation from an overwhelming need for ‘perfection’ – this I comprehend well as a drive to not make ONE SINGLE MISTAKE, and to frog fiercely (and with rage) when one is found. I am still struggling with overcoming this; and an entire blanket’s creation is not going to help.
- It is very expensive in terms of the necessary yarn. Possibly this is, in truth, my main rationale .. :\
So much for the old man’s underpants. But thanks to the talented Rachel Henri, I now know at least one way of making a square in the round in Tunisian crochet.
