When life hands you cotton, make string bags. After running out of yarn on my first attempt, I pulled out the heavy artillery just to make sure. After digging around in the stash, I found this 2 lb. cone of cotton that I bought eons ago. How could someone forget having this thing in the house? Maybe someone who's just a little over enstashiated?
I couldn't stop til this was done.
I like this bag. It looks dainty enough, but it can hold quite a bit. I will make another after I try a few others. The next one will be knitted and have some real specs to go with it. This one is from an older pattern crocheted with a size C hook in a pure cotton that wasn't marked. I got it from an indie crochet house about 3-4 years ago and it's perfect for this kind of project.
Seems the string bag thing is the general mood for knitters and crocheters alike these days, so I'll just keep making them until I stop. There's been knitting on the Gracious Parcels front and the Dishcloth Fun gang is at it for the month of June too. I've also worked the UFO Resurrection Forever Tank as I'm calling it.
Now I can literally say I'm up to my armpits in knitting. The arm shaping is about to commence, but the directions are right now clear as mud. Do this on this side while doing that on the other while every other row doing this and don't do this on every 5th row or something like that. This is now a "I have to knit this at home where I can think" knit.
I also want to make the Larger Than Life Bag from Interweave. And oh looky, I just happen to have some cotton yarn for it.
A draw string bag made about 10 years ago from a kit.
Now if you'll pardon me, I have to step outside to use the facility.
