I am about to start a cotton market bag, the last one I made was a disaster, it wound up seriously massive. Like I could put my 2 1/2 year old nephew in it, and have room for my 4 yo nephew too. Ok, maybe not quite that big. Not sure if it was the pattern, or my inability to crochet in the round when you join each round, resulting in an ever increasing  circle.

I also have yet to finish the bobble clutch from Getting Started Crochet. It was the whole reason I bought that book! I've made the main pieces( like a year and a half ago!), just have to join it all together via crab stitch and figure out how to line it.

And I really want to make a star baby blanket for my new nephew! (2 1/2 weeks)

I'm working on a Corporate Zombie from Creepy Cute Crochet, an amigurumi squid, and I will soon be working on a crocheted tam once the Handspun swap finishes up and hopefully a belt once I find the "right" colors for it. Smiley Other than that, I'm just trying to find other things to work on...surprisingly, nothing really interests me as of yet.

i haven't felted anything from crochet yet so i'm not too sure. i've felted from knitting but not crochet yet so this will be my first - the book said to use a m hook with a single strand of cascade 220 - single crochet.

the basic instructions for the bag i am making said to chain 86 - join with sl st and sc in round until it measures 9 inches. you sew the bottom seam. there are also instruction for a flap and a strap but i am probably going to make those different.

if you send me your email i can send you the book. there are 20 projects in it.

thanks for the info! i really want to make a bag for myself.. i have only done finished knitted felted projects.. i made a few of the 'amandas squatty sidekick' bag as christmas presents... i made myself one its a tealsih and lemongrass green colour... i dont use it cos i cant find a button i like for it!! lol! i want a big yellow one!! and even tho it doesn't really need lining i would like to line it too, maybe with yellow material to match the big yellow button that i don't have yet! or some some cute japanese fabric.

Hmmm, let's see.  I'm working on a pillow cover for my cats.  I made one for a swap awhile ago and I love how it worked out, but it's made of the evil boucle, so I hate doing it and put it off as often as possible.  I also have about 3/4 of a baby blanket done, it's for charity so I have no deadline and therefore no motivation.  Seems like there should be more of a list...  I bought the yarn for a filet afghan, but haven't started yet.  Oh and I'm working on a few little secret things for a swap. 

I made my first felted project a couple of weeks ago.  A knitting basket made with two strands of Paton's Classic Wool and a L hook.  I'm absolutely in love with how it worked out.  Here's a not great picture.  I will definitely be doing more felting.

I am making some amazingly simple market/produce bags for a swap I am doing. I forget where I got the pattern, something-n-cream?? I made myself one a bit ago and I LOVE it. It actually holds a lot more than I have in it in that picture. I have used it 3 times since I made it. Smiley




It had a head of iceberg, bunch of bananas, head of cauliflower, 2 onions, 2 red bell peppers and scallions.
