They are great.

Do you have any links about how to crochet with fingers?

I don't have any links. I think my mother taught me, or maybe I taught myself, as a kid. Basically you just use your index finger as a hook. Since it's bendable it works very well as a hook.  Smiley You can only crochet with materials like stripes of fabrics and such though. It would probably get far too loose with yarn.

Still wishing for a Tunisian crochet kit. Would be happy to personal swap for one. I have fabrics and all sorts of stuff to swap for.

Thanks, I think I'll try it!

They look great, especially the bowl. Cool idea, and you've done it so well!

WOW!  I love the colours and the structure of these.  I remember crocheting with my fingers when I was a kid - or was it finger knitting - anyway, you brought back memories of my childhood in Ireland so thanks for that.

I wonder if I can squeeze in an entry at the last minute... hmm?  I wish there were more hours in the day!!! Smiley

These are nice! I like how you color-coordinated them! And, I wish I read this sooner- I'm teaching a bunch of kids to crochet and if I had first had them go through the motions using their fingers as hooks, they might have caught onto it faster! Next time...  Wink

Those are so cute!  And, I'm a sorta beginner too and - I've never done anything from a pattern.  Easier to just wing instead of carefully following a pattern.

They seem to make a pretty good set.  I bet it would be fun to make small ones for kids to play with.  Maybe even a while set of dishes.
