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!

Polaris Bag a WIP

This was a bag that I have been using for my knitting and crochet stuff for almost three years. It is a weaved bag unto itself, bit the handles, (which are going to be done over), were coming apart. So I decided to cover over the weaved cloth with some new stuff. My own weaving.

I learned a lot about weaving while practicing on this piece. As you can see I decided to make the bottom not weaved like the sides, but rather a piece of great material that I have had for a long time.

There are plenty of pockets, there could be more. I took advantage of the fabric and did not fight with it. I used the way it was weaved and the length I got.

I will be making the handles today, I have the yarn which is parts of left over from before all set to be warped, but I am in no hurry. This has been a great project to learn about the "Cricket Loom" and weaving. Thanks for stopping by!
