I have just one pocket to finish and to do something (not sure yet) what with the collar....then wash and block.....its done in tunisian crochet, with variegated yarn without a pattern so it's taken me MONTHS. LOL

You have my admiration, although I am a very good knitter and can certainly crochet, I have never quite managed to learn Tunisian crochet, my MIL made a beautiful shawl for me which I have treasure for years, and I was totally determined to learn how to, carried the patterns for it and several Tunisian crochet hooks with me thru 2 moves and then one day realized it's just not going to happen.

We have a lot of talent here! WOW! i'd be afraid to use a collar and leash like that on sally. i think she would likely eat it. cheap and replaceable is the ONLY way to go with sally for now!!! (she is still a puppy....lol).

i like the tunisian crochet i think because 1 row forward is different from 1 row back. and yes, 12 balls of yarn so far. it will likely be 13 by the time i'm finished. it's taken me MONTHS of a little bit now and then....ha ha. maybe i'll finish it this weekend while it's pouring freezing rain everywhere.....

I've never heard of Tunisian crochet. I'm going to look it up.

WLLady - That is a lovely sweater! I like the variegated look.
Tunisian crochet was the first type that I have tried when I taught myself how to crochet. My left forefinger is still paying for it with a repeated strain injury! And all I did was a little flower to cover up another work crest. Take heed, all of you over 50 yrs. - when starting something new that uses fine motor control, start slowly; do not persist; take a break.
Here is my Simple Tunisian Flower applique:

Crocheted blanket. Every year I do a different pattern over the winter months. Keeps your lap warm when working on it LOL

Beautiful! And very different from the usual granny square afghan/blanket.
