what all sorts of things can you do with tunisian stitch? that's a form of crochet with many stitches on the hook at once, right? and what is crocodile stitch?

i keep thinking about doing some crocheting but then i remember all the knitting i have to do....

You can make scarves and clothing and stuff, also blankets. I want to know it because I already had some of the hooks for it, and because i want to make baby blankets for my sister. Also because I hate doing knitting, but I'd like to make some things that knitting is suited for - and I don't drop any stitches with crochet, so it is ideal for me.

Crocodile stitch is decorative. It makes overlapping pieces that looks like scales. I think it looks super cool, and I want to use it to make little monsters.

Thanks! I want to make a dragon, and also a riled up artichoke monster. Maybe a little hat.

Oooh I tried the Tunisian stitch once and it was pretty cool. You're making me want a scarf made with it now, lol. The crocodile stitch just looks awesome I googled it and I like how it looks a lot, I can't wait to see the beasties you make out of it.

Today I learned that Abraham Lincoln could lift about 1,000 pounds, and he was so tall because of Marfan syndrome.

I hate to burst the learning bubble, but:


Wikipedia wrote:
Geneticists no longer believe Abraham Lincoln had the disease.[60][61][62] Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2B is more likely in his case[63] (see Medical and mental health of Abraham Lincoln).


Today I learnt there is Wikipedia page for the Medical and mental health of Abraham Lincoln.

No worries, I enjoy reading stuff from Cracked, but I reserve it as stuff to be more thoroughly researched later.
