  1. Esther, I know you’re not going to do a series of videos for the Discover the Seasons CAL, but would you consider doing an instructional video about Tunisian crochet? I know how to do it–I’m just not very good at it. Your work is so exquisite, and I feel I could really learn a lot from watching how you do it (much as I’ve learned a lot of general crochet tips from your Mandala Madness videos). I would even pay for a video like that–or even just a “tips and tricks” tutorial. And I know you’re doing the videos for the Hygge CAL, so I know you’re busy. Just planting a seed for someday. 🙂 With love from your biggest fan, Patty


      1. Yea! I ordered my Scheepjes Stardust (i love the way yours looks with that yarn–but I’m not a complete copycat: I ordered slightly different colors, haha), but I’m in the middle of two other projects, so it will sit awhile before I’m ready to work on the Discover the Seasons CAL. Maybe you’ll have done some instructional Tunisian videos by the time I’m ready to start! ❤


      2. P.S. No pressure–you have to do what’s right for you. I turn down people all the time who want me to crochet them something specific. They have no idea how much time it takes! If you ever do them, great! If not, I’ll just read your blog posts about the project and do my best!


  2. I’ve directed a lot of newbies to your tutorials as they are the best yet. I know beginners have to be taken into consideration but I’d love a project for advanced crocheters, I love love love, and thrive on a challenge and your videos plus Sophie’s Universe have changed me from a good crocheter into an excited advanced crocheter. Your posts are so easy to follow that an advanced project would be a do able challenge, it doesn’t have to be huge, I know how time consuming your videos and patterns are to do.
    Think about it please. I’ll be the first in line and I’m sure there are thousands of others who will be right behind me,


  3. I am a self taught crocheter and there are a few things I don’t seem to be able to do correctly. When joining at the end of a square with a slip stitch, my effort is never neat and i am sure my stitch count ends up wrong because of something I am doing wrong. I am doing your Nuts About Squares blanket so you can appreciate how often I can get it wrong. Can you point me in the direction of a tutorial? I love you yours, and have said it before. Your tutorials are the best.
    Regards, Josephine Anker
