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.

Does your household accumulate lots of dryer lint and empty toilet paper rolls? If you'll turn them into fire-starters for me, (stuff lots of lint inside the roll, fold edges, maybe add some candle wax), I'll happily send you something nice.

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!

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.
