Learning Tunisian

So I've been experimenting lately with a new form of crochet (well, not new, but new to me) called Tunisian.

Basically, you use a hook with a long cord on the end and you go across and back, always with the right side of the fabric facing you, unlike regular crochet, where you turn the fabric every row.

It's a cross between knitting and crocheting, if you ask me. In fact, there are ways to make it look just like knitting, if you're using the right stitches.

So, being me, instead of attempting the basic stitches first, I dove in and learned a lace stitch pattern.

I must say, I'm pretty adept at yarning because I got this:

On my first try.

I win.

(Ok, so it's not perfect, but nothing a little blocking can't fix, right?)

that's gorgeous. i have never been able to handle yarn like that. knitting and crocheting are way beyond me. i can work magic with counted cross-stitch like there's no tomorrow, but i just can't handle the two-needle thing.
