Tunisian Crochet Workshop by Michelle Robinson

Hi there everyone! 
I hope your day is going well, it is beautiful here, Spring has finally arrived and it is so good!

Today I'm sharing something exciting that a friend of mine has done, 
Michelle Robinson of Poppy and Bliss fame has written a wonderful book all about Tunisian Crochet, it's called 'Tunisian Crochet Workshop' and I was lucky enough to be given a copy of the e-book to review and be part of a blog hop to celebrate the launch of the book 

As someone who hasn't dabbled in Tunisian crochet before, this book was excellent at explaining 
the techniques for a beginner, while also exploring lots of more advanced stitches for when you are ready for more.  Also, the projects are very cute!  Michelle has created a truly comprehensive guide to Tunisian Crochet, I'm sure it will become my go to book on this subject! 

I chose to play with the basic stitches in a swatch format just to start learning about Tunisian Crochet, I love how some of the stitches create a fabric very similar to knitting, there is such a lot of scope for creativity with this form of crochet! 

Here are my first attempts at Tunisian crochet, the bottom section is the basic stitch, the middle section is Tunisian knit stitch, and the top section is Tunisian Purl stitch.  I enjoy them all, and am thinking I'll make some washcloths to practice a bit more before I try one of the gorgeous projects in the book.  I am also planning to explore the colour work section of the book more fully, so many great colour play opportunities with Tunisian crochet. 
If you'd like to have a sneak peep at the book, go here to check it out.  

 The book is available from Sewandso, you can buy a copy here or in e-book format.
To see what the other lovely bloggers thought about this book the blog hop details are here
I would thoroughly recommend this book to anyone interested in learning Tunisian Crochet, Michelle has done a wonderful job with this book! xxxxxxxxxxx
