So, after a very long hiatus, I am back to Craftster. YAY!
I have been teaching myself to crochet, but I get help from my cousin over the phone/email (she is in the US and I am in Canada).
This is actually my third FO, the other two I will also post soon. The yarn is Patons SWS in Natural Blue, generously given to me by my cousin. I used a 5.5 mm crochet hook.
This is the link to the pattern:http://patternsbydot.blogspot.com/2006/02/little-gadabout-bag.html
And here is my bag in all its glory. It is pretty small (about the size of a can of pop).
Things I learned from this project:
1. I learned how to do a circular object by crocheting back and forth.
2. I learned how to do reverse half-double crochet. That was challenging!
3. Mistakes are a "design feature"
and to not get too upset by them.
