My wonderful Secret Pal send me a strange hook in her last parcel. I thought it was a tunisian hook but it is actually a double pointed hook. I havn't quite figures out the difference apart from the obvious -you can use both ends!
yesterday I gave it a try and today even more as my pal send me some great links.
It is a strange combination of knitting and crochet. Depending on how you do it looks woven or knitted, but is less elastic. It will be fun to experiment with -once my arm gets better (just realised I mention that arm a lot all of a sudden. I did too much knitting during the easter break and ended up with some kind of tenniselbow)
