Well whatever it is, it sure doesn't look like it!

In my last post I mentioned having some crochet lessons with my mate Sue W, the crochet guru of Karakariki!!  Well I have been crocheting away and it is all going rather well, but it ain't looking anything like what it actually is.

This is it so far.

Oscar is fantasizing about it being
a bed for him.

At the moment it is looking like
an over sized hat.


I am making one of Lucy's bags from Attic 24 except mine isn't rainbow colours as I am using yarn that I had stashed.  I am thinking how cool a black and white stripe one would look with red spots.

So very pleased to find her photo of her bag looking like mine, I actually thought I had stuffed it up!

Best I get on with it and finish it as my edging the top and making handles lesson is penciled in for Friday.

A bag.......I thought it was going to be a Rasta hat for your soon to grow dreads! But I see the plan ahead.......should look good.

I'm in awe of your crochet, I can't even manage a chain! Love the colours. xxx

Ah, I had started to guess it was a tea cosy, but then realised that would be one hell of a large teapot!

You're amazing. The first week you learn to crochet and already you're halfway to a beautiful bag. You're a talented one!

I second the Rasta hat nomination. :)

Oh I AM impressed Sue :-) I think it definately looks like Attic 24's bag - same shape, love your colours. I read her blog also & love all her crochet projects . Think you have done amazingly.

It looks good so far; can't wait to see the finished product.

Ooh, well done you - I'm impressed! Knitting and crochet are beyond me... xxx

Irie! Rasta hat yeah but a bag will be more useful. Looks like you are doing the bigger version of mine. Can't wait to see the finished project. Happy hooking.
