Looky looky! I've been soooo intrigued by this technique....I wanted to take this course last year, but it was full. Leisure Arts came out with a book! Yahoo! I ordered several....I had several knitting fairy visits recently, and I had to take care of the fairy tariff.
I discovered Melody MacDuffee does this with sewing thread! YIPES! (I'm not sure I can manage THAT without new bifocals, but I am starting to see new and exciting applications with knitting.) I corresponded with her to ask about some Crochet Fantasy articles she published, and I didn't have the heart to tell her I am a crochet drop-out. Last year's Christmas pins, as small as they were, hurt my wrists for days.... She suggested using sport or worsted weight yarn for bigger pieces. (She was also excited that I bought several copies...;-) I think I can push the envelope a little harder than worsted weight!!!
What if I can embellish a TAM (oh, just roll your eyes!) or any knitted center-out or border-in piece with crochet like this???? HMMMM? Then what happens?
I think I just found my next challenge!
