Have you been thinking about what project you'd like to make for the #wisecrafthandmade contest yet? I thought it might be fun to talk about some of the different types of handcrafts throughout the book during the contest. Today, let's talk about crochet.
I love to crochet, and since learning a few years ago, I really prefer it to knitting. One of the crochet projects in the book is a small bag project in the Spring section. This bag was taylor-made for my family of collectors. Crocheted with an open, mesh-type stitch pattern that holds the shells and rocks we collect at the beach, but allows the sand to sift through the weave of the bag. Pretty cool, right?
I worked on a remake of this bag. Same bag, but in a bigger size, just for kicks (or maybe for more shells and rocks?). I'm thinking it could be a great bag for carrying all kinds of things with me. The yarn color I picked for this bag is straight from the summer color palette of my book. I love this pink so much! But it is terribly hard to photograph! (The yarn is Maxima).
For now, anyway, I couldn't resist putting all my crochet stones in it.
