I am so easily influenced! I saw this Lacy Crochet Market Bag Challenge on one of my Facebook pages (there's a knit pattern too that I want to make) called The Crochet Crowd and I couldn't stop thinking about it. One day I decided to just try it to see if I could do the stitch. (Yes Judy L, you can teach an old dog a new trick.) Before I got to making the star, I read this about Market Bag Issues. There is a wonderful video tutorial that makes this stitch super easy. So now I am breezing along and cannot wait to use my bag. And reduce the amount of cotton yarn in my bin. This isn't the yarn called for in the instructions but it will make for a nice, strong bag.
I've been working on my In Love With Color Throw but now as much as I would like to. I am on round 3 of the border. I think a couple good tv nights this week and it will be finished.
These 6 little cuties are keeping me from my evening yarn projects. Momma Sally sneaked outside one morning and didn't come back. We are having a time with coyotes and are afraid one might have got her. So I have been feeding these cuties with a syringe. It takes about an hour to get them all happy and napping again. This is my first time ever hand rearing kittens! It's quite an experience. I'm hoping they will start to eat food soon and start using a litter box. They are 3 weeks old. Am I pushing it too fast?
