Crochet Crazy by aneesah Crochet Crazy by aneesah
(Yeah, I just liked that title because of the "Cr".)

Ehm, anyway, was bored, started to learn crochet online, did one rather ugly scarf with old yarn and plastic toy hook, went to store to buy yarn for this project, yarn was expensive and came in very small bundles, hence I didn't have enough white yarn to make a mostly-white bag.

So this is only my second project, took just over 24 hours, lots of ugliness and mistakes, and sore fingers, but crochet is good.

Read the notes on this pic in its Flickr page: [link] :D

Wow, what a cool idea. is the yarn you chose cotton or bamboo? if it was that could be why it was sold in small bundles and they are very expensive. Acrylic yarns are much cheaper and easier to find in soooo many colors. where I live you could by a skein of Redheart Brand yarn for 1.99.

Your purse came out beautiful, did you make that button?

Oh, and no, the button was from my mum's sewing box -- probably from a blouse of hers or something. :giggle:

I.. actually think it's chunky acrylic yarn. :nod: Definitely not bamboo, and didn't seem like cotton. Most yarns are expensive in Malaysia, because they're imported, and because of our currency. ^^;

But I live in the UK now, so it's better here. :D

wow, Malaysia, and the UK. I live in the USA on the Atlantic coast. I love DA because there's such a diverse community here.

True, dA represents the world's artists quite well, no? :D

Malaysia doesn't have much of the "western" (crocheting, knitting, etc.) crafts stuff, but other materials I found quite cheap back there. Like zippers! (the normal kind though)

There are other kinds of zippers?

Ooh, chunky plastic zippers (they're bigger/wider), metal zippers, separable zippers (like on hoodies), double-sided zippers (for reversible jackets etc.), lots of things I've never managed to find back there... =P

Congrats on finishing it so early! I took ages with mine.

I learned crochet by making bags and purses, not scarfs.

^^; It's embarrassing for me to see this bag again. And yeah, I don't really have a purpose for scarves if I make them, and so bags and purses are more useful. :D
