this pattern for crocheted shopping bags caught my eye...
I paid for a digital download... It was there a minute later! I was surprised how quickly it went.
I didn't purchase the yarn for the project. As I perused the pattern - I realized that I could probably use scraps I have around...
The non-stretchy yarn I used is thick synthetic carpet yarn that my mother dyed using onion skins back in her teaching days.
Part of the thrill - for me - is using up all these yarn scraps!
I'm not sure what I'll use the bag for... Shopping? Storing yarn?
But I plan to go back to the pattern and try again (and again?) until all my "chunky" yarn scraps are used up!
