At Christmas my lovely friend Frances (libertasamericanaart) sent me a gorgeous handmade travel journal and a stunning crochet project. It uses Darn Good Yarn sport weight silk yarn, which is lovely to work with and smooth and soft, and just is the most amazing colour.
It came with a pattern to make a bobble stitch purse, which I have finally made a start on. I don’t always like the look of bobble stitch but these are so dinky and cute and I love the effect of them and the way the colours work through them.
I have so many unfinished projects in different bags at the moment, and no motivation to work through them. I’m really hoping this one doesn’t join them. It comes out when I’m watching trashy TV that doesn’t need my full attention… So we’ll see how quickly it grows!!
