Tunisian Crochet ... ! x

I have been lent a set of Denise Interchangable hooks to try out ...

And so today I have spent a quiet day getting to grips with the art of Tunisian Crochet. I have been using thr instructions that come with the Denise Hooks along with those included with the International Crochet Diploma.
I think I have cracked it ... although I need to be aware of the use of hooks as it wasn't a flat sample I produced ...

The reason I think is that I should have used a smaller hook to do the foundation chain and then the right size hook for the wool I was using. I was using aran wool with a 4.5mm hook which would have been perfect for double knitting so the stitches where a little tight.
I do love the stitches that tunisian crochet produces though, I was doing the simple stitch ...
The Denise Hooks are plastic, but they are lovely to use ... and I think there maybe a purchase soon!!!
Off to practice a little more!
bye bye
