I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Entrelac Project Bag, lined

Entrelac Bag (1)

The bag has been lined with a beautiful red cotton flannel.  I was offered polyester and even though there are advantages to that, I really don't want polyester in my bag.It is about 90 % wool on the outside and because I used the Noro Kureyon SOck which has Nylon, that gives it a bit of Nylon in the mix.  I lined the bag before I closed the bottom, it was closed afterwards with a kitchener stitched in reverse to give it texture. I am working on the I-Cord right now.

This was and still is a fun project and is a bag I can use to carry some of my works in progress.  I will not be ashamed anymore, because I have no store bought project bags to carry my stuff around lol! The I-Cord  will be long enough to serve as handles and to close the bag as well.  I am going to borrow some of the ideas from the Dice Bag and use one of those thingies to have a nice holder for the straps to hang out.   There are holes around through which I am going to thread the I-Cord.  Hope to finish the I-Cord today, this was a very fun project and I am hoping to make a vest or two, in the meantime thanks for stopping by!
