This past week I got more done on my purse, finished a present, and worked on my Mochilito Scarf!
The present I can’t really post here since it is no longer a WIP and is blocking as we speak. It is made out of Bernat Bamboo Natural Blends, which of course means it has been blocking since Monday night and as of this writing over 24 hours later it is STILL WET. But I’m giving you a sneak peak of it anyway.
Then we have that basketweave purse invented by Clara over at the Crazy Crochet Ladies. I’ve taken some liberties with the pattern I wrote down when I met with them. I made my bag with worsted cotton held double instead of bulky cotton held double, and I made it larger. I bought purse handles that I couldn’t just easily crochet around but they were so perfect I HAD to get them. I sewed up my bag before doing the lining, and I added a plastic canvas bottom and sides for the wide edges to help support it.I still need to do the lining, the small button flap, and I am contemplating making little side pockets on the short sides since the way I built my purse those sides will never tuck in right anyway.
Lastly, the Mochilito Scarf, which absolutely has to get done within a few weeks to count for the KAL it is being made for. It now measures at 33 inches.
