New hooks!

Dreamz symphonie interchangeable tunisian crochet hooks |

One of my goals for this year is to start designing clothing.  I love the look and feel of knitted fabric for clothing but I don’t want to design in knit, so I’m going to give tunisian crochet a shot.  To this end I decided to purchase the Dreamz Symfonie interchangeable tunisian crochet set.

The set include 8 hooks, each made of laminated birch which is supposed to be very sturdy.  It also comes with cables in four lengths, end caps and cable joiners that will let you join all three cables together so there should be virtually nothing I cannot crochet now.  I’m excited both because now I can get started with tunisian crochet and also because these are my first wooden hooks.  Up to now all of my hooks have been metal.

I practiced a little with my one afghan hook, but I have lots of tunisian crochet stitches to explore before I start designing.  I think I’m going to make a sampler blanket to start.  I can’t wait to get started, but I’ve got a pair of socks to finish first.
