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!

Chamalla Bag Silk and Wool

If I never knew what to do with Sari Silk Yarn, now I know it is great to combine with wool. This bag has a strand of sari silk yarn along kool-daid dyed wool and some paton, which is the very red wool. I was able to line it with some fabric I had and hand sew the liner to the bag. If I was making this again , I would not make the bottom until the liner was in place.
This is a very sturdy bag and is double stranded, wool and silk, very sturdy materials. I will be using it to carry some of my works in progress and little projects when I go out to my knitting groups, or shopping for yarn.
This is a Combo Bag, the bottom of the Bag is done in crochet, the top is knitted and it has a liner that is hand sewn. It is wool (kool aid dyed) and sari silk yarn.
