night in tunisia

I've had fun learning a new thing -- tunisian crochet!  I found this weird long hook at the thrift store a while back and for 69 cents I couldn't resist...  I dug around in The Happy Hooker and found instructions for how to do this odd hybrid between crocheting and knitting (it's sometimes called afghan stitch) and thought, hey, that looks cool!  It's super easy, makes a sturdy fabric with a cool basketweavey look on one side (cross stitch, anyone?) and the other side looks like purls, which I love...

Not sure what I want to make with it yet, but I'm sure I'll think of something (I might even try my hand at cross stitch, hmm...).
