Voohooo ! you cant tell how excited I am. After a hard day I come home in the evening to find an unimpressive grey packet at my door. One look at the postal details and my excitement knew no bounds. Like a kid expecting his best gift ever, I ripped open the envelope impatiently and screamed at the sight of the colourful contents !!! I called out to my daughter who was upstairs ”listen I got my best gift ever…my Tunisian hooks have arrived !” Nonchalantly she responded ‘hmm..so what’. Oh how I wished I could share my excitement with somebody I thought.
I quickly whipped up a quick dinner (thankfully I had planned it out in the morning itself!), laid the table and I had about fifteen minutes before the others came to the table. So, irresistible were my hands to try the hooks, that I ran to my room, grabbed some yarn and tried my first ever Tunisian crochet hook. Here is the tiny swatch I made before dinner !
And here are my precious hooks that took 20 long days to arrive !! (yes all the way from China !! :))
I have been wanting to try Tunisian crochet since a couple of years but somehow never pushed myself to buy the hooks. In the last two months I have been overpowered by an urge to try Tunisian crochet and so on an impulse ordered these hooks. In the meantime I educated myself on the stitches, watching the videos and reading the instructions over and over again till I understood in theory how to do it !!! Not satisfied with the theory, I practiced a small ten stitch swatch with my normal crochet hooks…the usual stitches, single stitch, knit stitch, purl stitch and a few more !!! I was so desperate to graduate to something higher 😉
With so much of preparation, you can only imagine my happiness when my hooks arrived after waiting forever (20 days is loooooooong !)
I do not have much to share with you today, except my excitement !! 🙂
