Here Be Tunisian Eyelets
(simple stitch instructions at lower left)
I searched online for a link to a good Youtube video or photo tutorial for the Tyo stitch. I turned up nothing!
If you know of a good link I'll add it to the next newsletter. It's an important stitch to know and I use it constantly. How could there be so little of in on the internet?
It's not difficult to do and you can probably understand my description at lower left.
I love it because I can really pick up speed with it.
An unpublished variation of the Five Peaks Wrap, which is pictured at left.
I love the braided look of this, but so far, it doesn't look the same in other yarns.
I'm still playing with this--I want to add another kind of stitch.

Speaking of Mary Beth, her Getting Loopy crochet podcast began a new year of episodes 3 days ago. I've been tuning in to her show for years! You can listen to episodes at her site: http://gettingloopy.com/
Please consider donating
to cover the costs of hosting it at BlogTalkRadio; she has raised most of it and is only $100 short.
The "Five Peaks Shawl" at left was published in Interweave Crochet magazine last March, and is now downloadable from the Interweave Store. My updated version will be available at my own site this Spring.
The Slip Stitch Sweater (mentioned in the Ribbing Issue, #9): Due to my hardware glitch, I can't upload photos of the nearly-finished sweater this week.
I overhauled the features in the right column of my main blog, which I haven't done since 2006! You can take a look here: http://designingvashti.blogspot.com/
I have 8 new patterns that only need this or that before I can publish them! And another 5 behind them. I'm getting back into the swing of pattern writing again after houseguests & holidays.
