I am closing in on the end of my hairpin lace shawl. One of the stitches used to join the strips together is called the puff stitch. I had no idea what this was and messaged a nice lady on Ravelry who had nade it already. Turns out puff stitch is a 'regular' stitch in crochet. Who knew? Not me, clearly. At any rate, if I had kept up with my sample making from the book Happy Hooker, I would eventually have come to....you guessed it, puff stitch!
I decided to give it a whirl in a less sensitive situation and made up a swatch. Ta da!
I am expanding my horizons. Woo hoo!
