I showed you a glimpse of my crochet bag the other day. Now it is finished. I'm very happy with the way it has turned out. I'm using it to store my yarn in, I think it might prove a bit too stretchy for heavier use. If I make one for taking out and about I think it might need a lining.
Here it is from beginning to end.
Two things I've discovered while making my blanket and my bag. 1) I have to change colour every row or round. I simply can't contemplate crocheting anything with less than 10 colours at the very least.
2) Those colours can be any colour except black, white, grey or brown (unless a very rich golden brown or red brown).
Now I have to turn my thoughts to how I am going to fund my yarn habit. Having just spent far too much money at Waitrose again, I fear some strict menu planning and eating up of what we already have in the cupboards is in order. Then maybe I can syphon off some of the housekeeping money towards more exciting woolly purchases :o)
A big thank you to Lucy at Attic24 for her wonderful bag tutorial.
