    Hi Marly, Such a pleasure to meet Toni, Thank you Marly. As a true Bag Lady I was So excited to see this because I’ve not crocheted in 8 months. After a wrist brake I tried to get my crojo back and honestly it felt like a million dollar firecracker that played out in a roadrunner cartoon, fizzle stick! Looking forward to putting this wrist recovery back to good use! I’ll admit when I heard the heard the key word was harper.i laughed and thought how much I was dating myself. Because my first thought was Harper Valley PTAby Jeannie Riley. I still get a kick or off that song. A single momma not allowing judgemental town to stop her in doing for her girl!
    Have a blessed day, Kathleen

  7. Sharon Osborne says:

    I love Toni’s designs….my first wearable was the Sweater Weather cardi. I love it!! I will be making the Harper bag soon…I love bags and totes! Loved listening to you ladies!

  8. Candy Chambers says:

    I have been watching TL Yarn crafts for about a year now. I never made the connection that Toni was who I was watching on Knit and Crochet Now. Wow I feel like such a goober. Lol. I love the Harper bag. I learned Tunisian crochet a few years ago. I made my mom a round blanket doing Tunisian. I designed it myself and I am very proud of it. Love you both.

  9. Apple Walton says:

    Hello Marly and Toni,
    I didn’t get to see the podcast until later today and I’m glad I got to watch it. Toni, I’ll telling my age but I do believe when I first started knitting in H.S. the now Tunisian crochet was called the Afghan stitch, correct me if I’m wrong. I had a friend who always made afghans and would crossstitch on them and I could not grasp how she did it but now after watching some of your you tube videos I’m slowly understanding the technique better. I really like the Harper bag. Toni, I’m from Dayton, OH.

  10. NerakofTexas says:

    Hello Ladies!

    Stay safe!
