Summery Bag


Here’s something pretty and functional – this is from Lion Brand’s pattern list: click me!

(In the interest of smallifying this post, the pic here is teeny… look in the flickr pool for a much better look!)

This bag holds SO MUCH. Seriously. I’ve made this pattern a few times now, sometimes with longer handles for folks who like the cross-chested thing. I added the beads just for yucks.

This was done with just plain-ol’ Red Heart worsted workhorse yarn, and can I say again it holds EVERYTHING you own? 🙂

Details… A Flower

Here, submitted for your viewing pleasure, is my newest tiny crochet.

This is a flower, created to prettify a sweater with poorly chosen colors, and it worked! The pattern is online somewhere, just a flower, but I switched colors for each round to get the multi-layer effect.

Happy Spring! (Or Fall, depending on your locale.) (Here’s the whole sweater, for those who wanted to see:click me!)

Okay well I was *desperately* trying to finish this afghan before I posted, but due to some other projects that came up (pirate-themed baby booties, for one… no really!), I only finished one strip of 6 for the Rose Garden afghan.

The pattern was one of Annie’s Attic’s free-pattern-of-the-days awhile back, and was called Vineyard or some such thing. It was supposed to be plums and purples, but the colors they recommended weren’t available anymore. My daughter loves rose colors, so I went with dusty rose, a wine colored accent to it that seemed to match (and which I had a metric ton of), sage and ivory. It really will be pretty when it’s done, but OMG those multi-colored grannies! All 70 of them! Update: OH I’M SORRY DID I SAY 70?!  I meant 96.  NINETY-SIX.  16 squares per strip times 6 strips.  Isn’t there a song called 96 Tears?  I may start crying, especially if I don’t have enough base grannies sitting and home.  Yeesh.

Eventually it will be lovely, but in the meantime here’s a preview (and thanks Val, I will post the finished product when it’s done!):
