… tough handles
Crochet creation completed
The project started at Mrs Johnson’s Knit & Knatter Group back in the short days and long evenings of winter.
Summer pops along, the garden makes demands, crocheting sits on the back burner where the beginnings of a string bag lie dormant.
The scorching sun saps my energy. Pottering in the garden comes to a halt. Finding a pocket of shade to sit and cool down offers the opportunity to pick up the string bag and crochet hook. It takes some time to work out where I am in the pattern, and how I got there. Eventually after a several undoings and head-scratching moments, things click into place. With a deft flick of the wrist I’m back in Crochet Zone.
Delighted with my strong bottomed, tough handled string bag.
For some obscure reason I associate crochet with dark nights, curtains drawn, telly and heating full-on. I’ve had a re-think. It’s the perfect activity for summer. Gentle on the body, no sweat involved!
