Despite living along way from the sea I made this beach bag
in it's present state it's not very practical as anything remotely heavier than a beach ball makes it sag! My sister in law is going to line it for me with some fabric to try and make it a bit more sturdy.
Using spagetti yarn made from old t-shirts I made a 'oval' rag rug but I think I got my calculations wrong somewhere as, if you look carefully on the left hand side, you can see it's a bit lumpy! This 'yarn' works up really quickly but you need a lot of t-shirts for even the smallest project.
I'm not yet hooked on crochet, knitting is definitely my first love. So as autumn has brought increasingly chilly mornings, I made this little hat for Tino. I saw the model on http://wabisabiwonderings.blogspot.com (sorry but for some reason I can't get the link to work?) and liked the changes she had made so I modified mine likewise.
It's been a while but I'm happy to be linking up with Ginny this week for Yarn Along, we have a very busy wednesday with swimming and ice-hockey practice so I will have to wait patiently until the end of the day to see what delights everyone else has been making.
Almost forgot the reading part!! I'm down to the last of the little house books - The First Four Years- but it's only a short book so I'm trying not to start it's yet as otherwise it's going to be finished to quickly!.
