String bags and recycled cotton….

DSCF1502
I bought some new yarn yesterday ‘SIMPLY RECYCLED’ cotton by Sirdar. I like the chalky colours and as my attention has gone to the string bag I thought this may be a good choice. I have made a start with the denim blue (shade 0020). Progress is slow and I have had to unpick some of my bag! I had too little sleep last night and my attention wandered as the opening of my bag got smaller…… all will be resolved but not tonight.
I also found a feel good book ‘Granny Chic’. A book to browse through and dream.

On the subject of books, I was given a bejewelled plain paper book by a friend. I have decided to use it for ideas of things to make, patterns of items that I want to make or have made and references for wools.

About hookandply

I am a painter and maker. I love experimenting with colour and textures and I find wools and fabrics irresistable. I was taught to knit by my mother and have always felt comfortable with all things knitting but about two years ago I started to learn to crochet and got hooked. I have various projects scattered around the house so that I can pick up a project wherever I am. If I go out I take some trusty crochet with me to do when I am enjoying a break in a cafe. It is a good starting point for a conversation. Has anyone else found this? My most resent passion is Lindy Hop and the 1940's but that is another story.

  1. I love the design on the book is it handmade??

  2. I love those hooked string bags. I’m not a crocheter but I managed to produce a couple of those with my hook and I’m so glad I did! They stretch when needed and you can see what’s inside without stuff falling out… So useful!
