Happy Holiday Weekend Everyone,
Summer is almost over, and I had the
nicest surprise last week. In the middle
of finishing up another project, and
writing yet another book proposal,
I received a e-mail from a friend stating
that she saw one of my hats being shown on Crochetville.org/forum/
belong to several on-line forums, but did not really know about
Crochetville. After exploring it, I found out that you can read the
posts but cannot reply unless you are a member. It looked so
interesting that I immediately joined. Shortly thereafter, I found out
that quite a few members were working on a crochet-along, and they were
all making the 8 pocket tote from my book HOOKED BAGS. I also heard
from another friend that another on-line group was doing a
crochet-along for the same bag. The bag was made in Lion Brand Cotton,
and Lion Brand had permission to offer the tote as a free pattern.
Wow, was I surprised at how many people were making the tote. It is the Eight Pocket Tote shown below;
The photos of the finished bags are starting to show up on the site, and I am amazed at the ingenuity of the crocheters. Depending on the colors, yarn and linings that they choose, the bags are all turning out differently. What fun seeing them all. I have asked permission to post them on my blog, so hopefully you will get to see some of them soon.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone.
