I learned how to net (make my own fishnet by hand) a few months back.  I've been making great produce bags out of clearance novelty yarns. This time I knitted a top on it, crocheted the flap and strap and sewed buttons for closures.  These pictures really don't do this bag justice...the colors are very rich and the feel of the bag is great. (first time trying to post pics from photobucket...hope it works!)

It's very nice. It looks difficult to do.

Thanks.  You can get a similar look by crocheting, but this is actually made by hand-netting...like a fisherman's net.  If you haven't seen one of those up close, maybe you've seen a hockey net...or even a basket ball net...minus the long loops that hook around the rim...that's netting. (An ancient art, really!)

It's really fun, works up fast and is more lightweight than a chained crochet mesh.

And since the experts now say that you CAN end your sentence with a preposition, here are links to the sites I learned to net from:

http://www.troop54.com/knots/Netting.htm

http://knotsindeed.com/gallery/decorative.html

Also, I've made all of my guides and shuttles using those plastic fake credit cards you get in the mail or old gift cards.  I made a nice long shuttle out of a plastic knife...I made a whole netted scarf with it and loved how it worked, but I stepped on it...I'll have to make another one and post pictures to show you guys how to make them...fa free!!!!!

Recycled...that's the coooooolest!!!!  No money for this craft except the twine/yarn/string...whatever!  I haven't tried it with my plastic grocery bag twine yet, but if it's not to slippery, I mean if the knots will hold well, even your TWINE would be free, too!  Completely no money spent!

Later!
