The Transformers Tunisian Crochet is coming along nicely, unsure what to make it in to...a pillow, a wall hanging...only two more squares to stitch and then it will be complete letter N and E. Over the course of making this piece i have learnt that tunisian crochet is alot eaiser than i first thought, yet keeping the tension when adding in so many colours is tricky, so i decided to make alot of the letter designs alot simpler.

I really like the fairisle designs in knit wear and i was trying to replicate them, however i can only crochet and i found it too hard...untill i discovered tunisian crochet, a sort of cross between crochet and knitting, thankfully still only using one hook.
After getting into it I have designed and started to make 19 x 19 stitch swatches in the theme of Transformers, thinking of making it into a patchwork pillow...So far i have crocheted and the autobot and decepticion logos, a tape, and im currently working on megatrons face...
