Tunisian crochet in color

Wanted to do some Tunisian crochet project in color.so I thought of knitting a cushion cover.firdt I knitted a swatch.bottom is the waffle stitch and then I knitted TSS. Waffle stitch fabric is thicker and it also has more width for same no of stitches.l am thinking to knit it in round new new ideas coming to confuse me even more.

Tunisian crochet and brioche knitting

 From net got the idea of making Tunisian crochet Hook from pencil and knitted a swatch with tss.the second one I made from icecream stick and is double sided but it snags on wool I painted it with clear nailpolish but the problem was still there.i think I have to discard it. But the pencil one is ok.
 I started a very ambitious project of brioche knitted scarf . The knitting speed is very slow.snd is also consuming lot of wool.a nd also not getting right combination.

Knitting cap and some brazilian embroidery practice


 Knitted a cap . It is knitted sideways. It is to be stitched .
 Raised cup stitch is worked in one or two rows.cast on stitch is worked with a bead in the Centre  but I worked it wrong in placement and it came out of some weird shape
Here raised cup stitch is done with some heavier thread of shaded orange color and also some kamal kadai

Gloves fingerless

 Tried knitting fingerless gloves for my daughter.  After some trial it came out ok. It was very tiresome knitting fingers on dpn though.

Aari work

 Was practising aari work with single strand of silk thread. It was very fine and it took a lot of time to embroider a leaf .tht read also got entangled with hook and got fuzzy.
But needle painting with tambour needle on other blogs look so intimidating that I want to try it again and again.  For that fine work one may have to have the proper frame and needle also to achieve that so fisticuffs. Better luck next time .may be with two strands.
