We had a really great weekend. I was hoping to complete a few projects that have been waiting in the wings. I did complete my Larger Than Life Bag....almost. I ended up crocheting only eight squares instead of twelve in Raffinesse (a raffia-like poly-vinyl yarn). I decided that an eight-square bag was large enough! I crocheted a bottom portion, joined the pieces and fit the piece over an existing pink tote that I had hangin' around. Now, all I have to do is tack the top of the crocheted covering to the pink tote. I think I will use plastic fishing filament with a very sharp upholstery sewing needle to accomplish this.I'm quite pleased with this bag and will post my results to the Crochet-a-long blog.
I have 8 more squares crocheted in cotton that I'm almost finished with. For this bag, I'm crocheting a lining using Red Heart sturdy acrylic yarn....more to come.
Also, more to come about this past weekend, including pix of Natlie and her Yogathon, breakfast at the Mar Vista Bowling Alley Coffee Shop (woo hoo) and Sunday's ASKnitter's gathering!
