my challenge has been completed...

This here is project number four! And its done! I'm displaying it here holding the red yarn for that Little Red Riding Hood that I've been chomping at the bit to get started!
Seattle-bound mesh bag
This is that mesh bag that I was crocheting out of a thin sock-type yarn. It was a nice light project to work on in the car on the way up to New Hampshire this weekend. Since our car doesn't have air conditioning, a light weight and small project is ideal!  The pattern was very easy, just single crochet, double crochet and chaining.
The top band is all single crochet, which means it took a little while. Because the yarn is thin, the stitches are pretty small. Once I got to the mesh part, which consists of chaining an double crocheting, it went along really quickly.  It came out just how I thought it would, which is a relief since I modified the pattern to make a bigger bag, using much thinner yarn than was called for.
The bag is going into the mail tomorrow to Seattle for a friend. I had promised to send him something homemade way back in January and am relieved that I can come through on that promise!

  1. Nice bag - I like how you're using it to store more yarn :)
