This is round two. Through my own fault I've lost this post and had to write it again. Yeah! Here it goes: This is my version of a crocheted bag. I found a picture of it on another blog, of course, and I fell in love with this colorful baggy. I don't like crocheting very much and deceided to knit the squares rather than crochet them. As it turns out, they stretch very easily in EVERY direction. I've used cotton/acrylic yarn called Kelly by King as a stash reducer. I steamed the seams into submission, but I think I've melted the acrylic in it. It's all shiny now! ;o)I want to (have to) sew a lining for this bag, since I really want to use it myself. We'll see what old shirt will get sacrificed for this endeavor. It will be a horror session, that's for sure! I can't understand how somebody can make more than one of these bags. There's this German Lady Jutta who made alreday SIX !!! bags. Yeah, that's right. I admire that. It took me four days worth of knitting time for this ONE bag and it doesn't even have its lining yet.
I only wish I could have used a color/colors which I really LOVE instead of this yarn, but I had to make a dent in my stash. By the way, do you recognize the yarn? I've made the P90 for my daughter with it and had just enough left for the bag.
My hands almost fell off crocheting around the edges. My son asked me to calm myself, he couldn't take the cussing any more. ;o) Oh, and of course, taking advise for once, I've had to crochet the squares together as well, which was really the better option, since I suck in sewing knitted fabric.
For those who like crocheting and would love to give it a try, you can find the pattern here.
And - Yeah! - to me, it seems I've figured out to show links in text. It just takes me a little longer. ;o)
