Even the best laid plans will have detours along the way:

First Detour:

My four year old grandson asked me if I was going to crochet him something. First time this has ever happened. So everything was put on hold and I crocheted him a matching scarf to his grandfathers. I used black and blue for his; as he likes to tell me he likes all colors but blue is his favorite.  Picture is below.

Second detour:

A lady in our church asked for help to on a stitch she had never heard of. This is when Crochet Stitches Encyclopedia cakes in handy. I personally have five: three regular ones, one on Tunisian Crochet and one on Crochet on the Double.

I knew this stitch but it is still nice to be able to copy a good detail example of it.

I add a picture of the one I showed her. It was taken from Crochet Stitches Visual Encyclopedia by Robyn Chachula.

Now back to finishing up my Tunisian Crochet Afghan.






About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

    Very cool Pamela. I just finished a Tunisian crochet cell phone holder, I figured the smaller the better for a new stitch, but I enjoyed it and am looking forward to doing more. Love the scarf it is very pretty. I made a detour from my poncho and am making mesh bags for socks to make laundry day easier.
    The stitch Encyclopedia sounds like a great investment. Thanks for sharing. LeeAnne

    • I believe we all take detours; especially on large projects. I would love to see a picture of your cell phone holder. I got to see your Navitaty sets that your Crochet for Christmas gifts. They were beautiful and very well done. The Stitch Encyclopedia is a good investment. I have brought some of my at yard sales and some I brought new. Next time you are coming to our church let me know and I will bring mine to let your see them.

  2. “Detours: | Crochet with Passion” in fact got myself simply hooked with your webpage!
    I reallywill probably wind up being back again considerably more frequently.

    Thank you ,Candice
