So here's my progress on the project I alluded to earlier. It looks like a hot mess right now with all of the fancy cardboard yarn bobbins I made, but it will hopefully be a nice Tunisian crocheted afghan. This is only my second time playing around with Tunisian crochet, and the first time with color changes. Let me tell you, it's kind of a pain, but I'm hoping the end result will be worth it!
In the process I have learned what not to do with a big Tunisian project. Don't try to do it sitting in an Adirondack chair with it in your lap and don't try doing it sitting on a bed, unless your bed is super firm because everything will end up falling into where you are sitting. The best place I've found to crochet with this ridiculous mass of tangled bobbins is on a table. It's much easier to keep the bobbins organized, and since you work on just the front, you can just spread it out and work back and forth.
I won't lie, there was a point after seeing the slow progress and all the yarn tails that I already had to sew in that I thought "what have I got myself into?!" Well, only a hundred and some rows to go! Eek!!
What are you guys working on? I think I need to hear about some instant gratification projects!
