I am so excited to be learning a new craft- -okay, so I admit it, I'm a bit "craft crazy"!! And I love a new purse!! My friend, Laura, introduced me to a very fun blog (a new favorite of mine), http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/crochet/, where I fell in love with this purse. . . .
There was one problem, I don't crochet :( But with a little help and encouragement from Laura and with directions on the blog, I have started my very first crochet project and I am having so much fun!! I began with a circle. . .
and then began adding my stripes. . .
and now I'm completely hooked! My pattern is a little different than the original- -but that's what creativity is all about, right? I'm hoping to have it finished up within the next few days and can't decide if it will be mine or a gift for someone. . . . .hmmmmmm
