About a week ago Raina posted about her lovely new crochet bag and as soon as I saw it, I was completely enamoured. I desperately wanted one for myself.
One that I can put all my essential bits and pieces in and spend lovely summer days in the park, knitting, browsing, taking pictures and maybe even do a little reading.
Yarn: Mainly Rowan Handknit Cotton, some Debbie Bliss Cotton Angora & some Coats Lyric 8/8
Pattern: Crochet Bag by Lucy of Attic24
Hook: 4mm Grafton Fibre
Modifications/Notes: I did 12 increase rounds and then 28 normal rounds for the bag and then chained 105 sts for the handles and did 8 rows, 2 in each colour.
This definitely assuaged my need to crochet for a little while, and it also reminded me why I like crochet so much. I can see some more projects in the near future.
This reminds me of Summer and I’m hoping that the sun will take a hint and keep on shining for a good long time. 🙂
We’re having chicken salad wraps with potato wedges tonight, with some homemade mayonnaise. What are you all up to this weekend…?
