Bags Of Romance

I was on the road a lot this week, I was even on the train to Cork and back again in the one day, but more about that later. For all my travels, I needed a handy little project that was portable and interesting at the same time and what better than some fine yarn and an equally fine hook, but not too fine either. I mean, the work-light on a train and out and about is not exactly predictable, so very fine lace was ruled out…

I dipped into the stash and found some pretty DMC Petra Crochet Cotton (5), a size 2 mm hook and then I dug out the Hearty Tapestry Bag pattern for some tapestry crochet. I made some adaptation so this time it’s all soft tones here and I have a few little pretty Bags of Romance made up. They still need blocking and I have to find suitable buttons from the stash, once that’s done I’m all set for Valentine’s Day! Are you?

    What a gorgeous bag! I love it.

    Thank you Sinéad, I loved making it although a more accurate description of it would be a purse. I will post pictures of all of them, once I get them finished off and block and I will have something else in the picture for scale.

    Du må få lov,
    at gå på rov,
    i bedstemors knapkasse,
    når du, lige om lidt,
    kommer hjem.
