I've wanted to make a Tunisian Crochet Blanket for MG since I discovered Tunisian Crochet exsisted.... like a year ago... but I only found patterns that weren't exactly what I wanted.... To be honest, I didn't know what I was looking for, I just knew that the patterns that I've found weren't right for this blanket....
But two weeks ago, I went to a yarn store here in Mexico City, to buy 1cm needles to make a sleevles top... other story... and being there, looking all the beautiful yarns, the scrumptious vests and shawls already made that they exhibit there, I decided to show my ripple blanket to the vendor lady...
We talk a little bit about hooks and crochet, and then she showed me "THE" blanket!!!!
I mean, it was perfect!! that was what I've been looking for!!!
I loved the pattern, I loved the feeling of it, the yarn was super soft, it had a great edge........ and it was made with Tunisian Crochet tecnique!!!!!!!!!!!!
I learned then that I could take a class there with a teacher that doesn't get a lot of students, as the majority of them goes to knitting class and not to crochet class... Monday and Thursday.....
So I went today!!!! all morning...... from 11 am to 3 pm, more mid-day than morning, but still....
The pictures upthere are all from the store, I took them today, they are kind of weird because I took them from the second floor, where the class was held... and I took them quick, I know they aren't the best pictures... Here is the needles and hooks wall, the worst picture of all!
Here is what I acheived today!
here is one with flash:
I'm right below half of the pattern... I hope to complete the square tomorrow... the plan is to make 9 or 12 or them and sew them together and then make the edge... I'm not crazy about the colors, but MG wanted a blanket in "Earth" tones and they didn't have a huge selection.... I want to make it as a Christmas present to him!
Anyway, that's all... I am excited and I wanted to show you this new thing I learned!!!
See you soon!
