Last week my sister told me about her birthday wish for her coming birthday party; a big, red, woolen blanket. She explained that every guest would have to create a square in 15 x 15 cm in whatever technique they chose as long as it was in wool and a colour red.
I haven’t been doing any needlework in ages, and this was the challenge I needed. Years ago I learned the Tunisian crochet (hakking) method which is a cross between knitting and crocheting worked on a long doubled ended crochet hook. So I decided to go for that. By the help of internet, it was really easy to pick up. I like to work with bamboo material, and I found these three hooks (above) which are produced by Solvor Hofsli. They can be ordered from this email firstname.lastname@example.org
At the moment I am really hung upon this project. It is the first thing I do when I get home from work, and the last thing I do before I go to bed. It is quite promising for my sister’s blanket.
