I have been using my little black bag a lot. As I mentioned before though, I thought I needed one in another colour… teal is always high on my favourites list.
Here is the interesting crochet stitch I wanted to try. It's from a bag pattern by Creative Yarn Source called "Splendid". For some reason it took me many goes to get this right but I got there in the end.
This bag will be a little bit bigger and I'm now wondering what sort of closure I will use for it. A zip again? A flap? A metal closure?
I did get some nylon cord but I'm not enjoying working with it at all. It feels like rough rope to crochet with. I've put it to one side for now and am making this in an acrylic double knitting size yarn. It's smooth and nice to work with and I'm hoping it will wear better than the cotton I used for the black bag. Time will tell.
