When a very very good friend who doesn't crochet, kept on pinning lots and lots and lots of crochet related pins on Pinterest, I had to ask myself, WHY?
Was it because this friend was so excited by my crocheting skills that she really wanted to start crocheting like she said she did three years ago, when I bought her a how to crochet book, some yarn and some hooks, none of which has been touched since. Or, was it because she was trying to be subtle, hinting that she would like me to make something for her?
Having heard the swear words after her last attempt at crocheting, I concluded that it was her cunning plan to get me to crochet something for her.
What to make? After a lot of deliberation I decided on something that would be useful and bright and cheery.
What exactly is it? You ask.
It's a bag.
I followed the tutorial on Attic 24. There are fabulous crochet tutorials by Lucy on her blog, very good for beginners.
(That's a not so subtle hint for my friend!)
