Well I’ve been busy or ill most of this week so not a lot of time for any sort of crafting. I did however get the time to have a go at a stash busting project I’ve been thinking about for a while.
On the coach trip to Ally Pally my friend Irene was crocheting a beautiful bag. I’m not always taken with knitted or crocheted bags but this one was lovely. She explained the idea of how to do it (couldn’t believe how simple it was) and so I decided to have a go.
Unfortunately when I was part way up the sides I decided that the base was a bit big for the bag I have in my head. So I decided to make it into a basket / toiletry tidy. It’s three strands of yarn from my stash worked together. A cream DK (not sure where is came from) and two balls of Noro Sock for the colour. I’m rather pleased with the results. Simple, easy and most importantly stops Salem the cat from playing football with the stuff on top of my chest of draws.
