I decided to have a go at a tote bag. I've never made anything like this before and I'm really enjoying it, but I think I would prefer a larger one really.
So I'm using a totally in your face (colour wise) chunky yarn. It's blue with spots of colour all over.
I've completed the bag part which consists of a mesh like bag with single crochet (US terms) at the top.
So I still have to make handles for it and sew it up. I tried to get a close up of the mesh and top parts, but my phone camera doesn't do macro very well, so it's a bit blurry I'm afraid.
The thing that made me smile with this a bit though, is that it's out of a british book, using UK terms and here's me from the UK, converting it to US terms to work it! haha.
The other thing on my hook at the moment is a cowel type scarf, to go round the neck twice hopefully!
It's a lovely pattern, although I have no idea of the proper terms for the stitch pattern as it was from a youtube tutorial and the girl doesn't know stitches etc.
Anyhow, I'm really enjoying this pattern alot. If anyone knows what it is, please can you tell me? It's a double crochet stitch, but you go either in front or behind the the DC stitch in the row below.
Again I tried for a close up of it, but my phone doesn't have a great camera really.
I'm really enjoying both these right now and with using the larger hooks it seems to come together alot quicker than usual.
I can't wait to pick these up again and get going on them, but sadly the ironing is calling me right now. SIGH!
Hope to have more updates soon.
Take care everyone.
