Temptation Resisted (Not)

(Note: There are some backed up blogs waiting to appear. I was on the road and then in a cabin in Maine without Internet access. So welcome to the world of blog catch up! The blog is very happy to have more to say.)

For the record, it's not breaking your promise to yourself not to try a new hook/technique until you've finished bunny projects if you think of a project for the bunny that involves the hook, right?

Right. Glad we got that cleared up.

Besides, now C's bunny will also have a fetching crocheted rectangle for a cute bunny blanket.

The fact that I've totally fallen for Tunisian crochet is NOT the main reason for making the bunny a blanket. Just because I'm finding the idea that all the crochet stitches end up on the hook

and then off the hook

totally enamoring (don't ask me why) doesn't mean that influenced my decision.

We'll ignore the fact that I love the basket weave look of the front of the fabric

and the almost knitted look of the back, because that's just a happy side effect of making C happy.

Yes, all this enjoyment and happiness is purely for C's benefit. (But for the record? Bobbles are the devil's own invention. They are evil, evil, evil and I absolutely loathe making them. The fact that all my bobbles look like knotted rats' whiskers has nothing to do with my perceptions of them, I promise you.)

Off to teacher's retreat. More later.

That is the only crochet I can do reliably. My Aunt Grace taught me to do looonngg time ago. Except she called it the afghan stitch. I guess because that's what we made with it, and then we cross-stitched roses on the panels. Good times (and I wonder what ever happened to that afghan). Glad to see you back, even if only for one post.
