I have not been posting much here, or elsewhere for that matter, since I have been busy working on several yarn projects. And while I only use one hook, I still need the other hand to hold the yarn...and can't type at the same time.
I wish I had another set of hands.
This is one of the items I've been deeply devoted to: the 'Fair Isle' Crochet bag from this season's issue (and also the last, I've read somewhere) of Family Circle Easy Crochet. I saw it at the supermarket while I was in line and it really has some great patterns. It is essentially a giant ad for Patons, Lily, and Bernat, but I'm okay with that.
Like Fair Isle knitting (apparently) you carry the unused yarn in the pattern on the back of the work. Since it is worked in the round, the back side is never seen. The little strands of yarn will be hidden by a lining (yeah, right, I'll get right to that as soon as I finish off).
Now I'm nearly done, just 4 more rows to go, single crochet. Rather rhythmic.
It is worked in Patons wool, I really dig the colors. Very preppy, haha! You can't go wrong with pink and green.
