Crochet Bag January 14, 2010

Posted by Mitchell in Art, Knitting.

So this weekend I finished my first real crochet project and I’m really happy with the way it turned out.Β  Take a look:

It’s a pretty good-sized bag great for carrying lots of stuff. It actually went together pretty fast, after I finally got it started right after about six or seven tries. Check out the inside and bottom:

The really neat thing abot this is that the bottom circle is made out of two pieces that serve as the bag’s own storage pouch when I’m not using it:

Pretty neat!

That’s purdy! I like the whole storage-pouch-in-a-bag idea, too. You can carry it in luggage and use it while shopping for stuff while you travel.

Me want! πŸ˜€

I can’t wait to bring it with me to Whole Foods and wave it under LiMP noses – I AM GREENER THAN THOU! πŸ˜€

You go dude!!!

Way cool. I can’t do that yet. πŸ™‚ But you go – taunt those LiMPs.

Thanks Nicole! It’s not that hard though, really. Definitely a beginner level crochet project. I can e-mail you or even post the instructions if you want.

I have a basic book right now which I am working my way through. All I have done up to this point is something that I called crochet but was probably actually tying knots in yarn till they held together. πŸ™‚ I find out now that the “stitch” I was using doesn’t exist in the real crochet world. My first blanket you could bounce quarters off of, it was so tight. The next one I tried to loosen things up to make it softer and ended up with the blanket that ate Kansas City. I’ve made several baby blankets for people using my imaginary stitch.

Until I bought this book for beginners I had no idea things got finished on the edges or how to do it. Now I know. πŸ™‚ And I have tons of yarn. All I need is a lap free of cat for more than a few minutes and I can continue learning. It shows those rose type of squares and fans and all those different basic stitches. What I need now is a portable electric fence to set up around my chair to fend off the heat seekers. πŸ™‚

…things got finished on the edges…
Hmm. I don’t think I know what you mean there. Still it sounds like you’re coming along. The bag itself is just uses single & double crochets for the bottom and top parts, and chains for the mesh. There’s really nothing fancy about it at all.

As for the kittehs, well they do value their lap-time quite highly I know. You can try explaing the situation to them but I don’t think they’ll listen. πŸ˜‰

I keep looking at the bag, thinking there is something so right about it…. Finally I figure it out: IT’S FREAKIN’ PATRIOTIC!!! The LiMPs at Whole Foods are going to have dizzy spells.

Yup! I made it from a cotton multicolored yarn called “American Stripes” I think.

What I mean by finished edges is the crocheting through the stitches on the sides of the blanket or square to give the edges a more complete look than the sometimes uneven ends. πŸ™‚ I’m sure you know what I’m talking about, I’m just not describing it well. πŸ™‚
