Ahh, freeform crochet.  This is my first attempt at it.  I really was thinking shawl when I started, but I was running out of yarn and stumped as to what else to do with it.  I had three connected circular bulges so, I thought that I would make it a bag.  I added a strap and viola it's a bag!

I handspun the brown alpaca and some of the blue wool yarn.  The other ingredients are red and blue commercial wool yarn, brown, black, and purple ribbon and light brown chenile.  The strap is adjustable.  I wove some ribbon through the triple crochet in the middle of the strap. There are avariety of textures, but it generally feels so soft because of the alpaca and chenile.

Wow, that is so cool. I love how it's just so crazy, but crazy in a good way. Nice Work!

Are you really sure that a floor can't also be a ceiling?
