something new


I wanted a new bag and decided to crochet one.....I had to frog it four times. First the circle was too big and the bag was gigantic, so after 50 rows of crochet I frogged. Second time - still huge - after 40 rows I frogged. Third time was too small and the fourth time - I don't know what I was thinking. Finally something I am very happy with. Of course the cat immediately rubbed her hair all over it and won't leave the bag alone. I am not certain what attracts her to it. Here are the goods:

yarn - sublime cashmere silk aran and Debbie Bliss merino aran (don't think they make this any more)
hook - 3.75 cm
mods - I did 11 rounds for the circle on the bottom and then did 29 rounds for the remainder - in total 40 rounds

Now if I could just figure out how to read the patterns in my Japanese crochet book and make them work left handed!! Happy weekend all.
