The drawstring crochet purse/bag is complete. I finished the strap yesterday and attached it last night. I wasn't feeling well so just sitting and crocheting was very relaxing.


Market Bag Experiment

I bought the biggest crochet hooks I could find and so masoners line to crochet old school market bags. What a disaster! The line is slippery that I couldn't even make a decent chain to get started. I then tried the big hooks with regular acrylic yarn and also a no go. Guess I will have to buy some super bulky to use them on. I did figure out that using plastic doesn't feel much different than metal.


Yarn Shopping

Tomorrow I am going yarn shopping with my sister. I want everything I see, but she hoards craft supplies like you would not believe. May hit a thrift store or two also.


This Week

So far this week I have:
          finished the bag body, have to wait on the handle and trim til payday
          worked on the throw, so far 1 small skein and most of a large one, have 2 more large
           not sure I will use all of it though
          found Knitting and Crochet Today on Create, did not know such a show existed
          got several crochet magazines, including a subscription to Crochet!

Will take pictures of the throw and bag later

ALSO decided that if I ever restart a craft business it will be called "Middle of Everywhere"
I grew up at the point of 3 counties and 4 municipalities and we were incorporated into any of them. Also most if not all of my sales will be on the internet.
