Thank you.
I'm somewhat jealous of people who can actually follow patterns. *sigh*

Thank you.
Yeah, actually it was fun. Frustrating sometimes. It was the first time I worked with multiple colors and learning how was kind of challenging. It was satisfying to use up bits of yarn that otherwise were too short for anything and were headed for the trash.

That must have taken you a very long time to complete! (or else you sat for many hours per day after day)....cuz I know Tunisian crochet. It seems you do each stitch twice, going across a row one way, then back again.
I started an afghan with TC years ago, and ended up tossing it in the Good Will only half done, hoping someone might finish it.

Congratulations on a job well done and completed perfectly. It looks super-cool!

Thank you, Woodi. As I recall it did take a while. It was a lot of experimentation, frogging and reworking. The reason it actually got finished was that a sweet little girl wanted it. After that I found out my DD wanted an afghan I had started, again with left over yarns, in brown and burgandy squares, worked all together with no seaming and I actually finished that. For Tunisian, I think small projects are best. I've not yet been able to toss a started project into the Goodwill bag, I wish I could. Kudos to you!

If this is what happens when boredom hits....then Monet and Picasso must have been bored a lot!

Very beautiful, creative work! I love what you did with your time and leftover materials!

ArtLady, I blame it on the granddaughter it was made for. Funny how a kid that won't learn to knit or crochet can be such an inspiration. Having seen your pics, I count this as high praise. Thank you so much.
