Thanks!  Kiss

If the yarn was too thin, I combined it with another or doubled it...I did not change hooks, but I did change the tightness of my stitches depending on the yarn...I tend to crochet and knit by "feel"?  I have done a few where the rows were getting "wavy"...I compensated by doing single or double crochet as needed to even it out...there are probably a few increases and decreases in there... Cheesy

Seriously, for the most part, since these were done lengthwise, there were so few rows (6-8)...I don't think an extra or shortages could be noticed unless you inspected the scarf carefully...a few wraps around the neck, a great attitude, and walking fast keeps a lot of mistakes from being seen! Cheesy

I finally learned how to crochet, which has long been The Impossible for me.  Smiley What I lack in experience and skillfulness, I made up for in flashiness with this yoga mat tote:


Small yardage of my handspun yarn I really wasn't fond of, found a suitable home in this project, along with a bunch of leftovers...


The removable strap roughly followed this pattern, but the bag was improvised.

Yay calluna's crocheting! That looks great. For not being fond of those handspuns it sure turned out great. Good job.

I think it looks great!  The mix of yarns add that bit of funkiness to your yoga mat tote!

I have so many little bits of handspun that I just do not want to throw out, so I am always looking for projects that leftovers can be used up!

Yay, calluna--for learning to crochet!

I love it. I have this tiny little collection of yarn that I haven't been able to let go of that is not enough to do much with. I could use a yoga mat bag though, and I'd love to see that yarn regularly. This might be just the thing, thanks for sharing!

Life is confusing, just when you think it's over it throws you a view like this and you don't know where you are.
