The two flagships

Crochet has a flagship and knitting another; and both of them are very fine craft indeed !

Tunisian crochet

Looks simple, doesn’t it ? – but a bit weird with that crochet hook holding multiple stitches … Tunisian has such a variety of stitches; and this one, TSS or tunisian simple stitch, is just the beginning.

Brioche knitting

Whereas this one looks almost unbelievably complicated: it sort of is, but it can be mastered ! If I can get on top of it, anyone can, believe me.

There will be posts going into much more detail on both: you have been warned !

I consider these two examples to be the acme of C&K: the ultimate of each craft. I aspire to create things in each; and one day I shall amaze the world.

  1. I could never ‘get’ crocheting. When I knitted bootees for my babies, I avoided crochet trim, except one pair and I got a friend to finish them off. This craft looks very interesting, and very very creative. Good for the old brains cells, no doubt.

    1. Yep, already wrote it on my desk calendar on tomorrow’s to-do list – look up Brioche knitting. I have so many idle days when we’re away from home in the camper. I can see a creative outlet and hand exercises in one while sitting by the water in my camp chair, whiling away the slow hours until time to crack a stubby or pour a merlot or tawny port. I can also see myself unravelling that unfinished sweater I just alluded to in your 87,000 followers post. Such concentration would be great for the brain synapses. :)

  2. Oh yes, Christine ! – frogging can be really therapeutic ! I do it so often, I oughta know ..
    I was sorry to learn of your little mate’s loss: and you seem to have observed that I lost Lui last year. but every cloud, and all that. You guys travel more, I would guess; and I have the smallest and most adorable cat in the world.
