Purse for Donnie


I made this purse for Donnie, for the handbag exchange on Crochet List. I am really pleased out it turned out! It is a super easy pattern; just make a large rectangle, fold in half, and crochet the edges together. Crochet around the top attaching the handles as you go, add a fancy button, and you’re set!

Blue Shawl for my SCP

Made this neato shawl for my pal on Secret Crochet Pals. I really love this blue yarn! I got it as a gift from a friend; her Mom had tons and tons of stuff she used for machine knitting, and this came from that.

My base chain was several inches longer than my arm span, and I did shell, sk 2, sc, sk 2 shell for the body. I edged it with 2 rows of sc, then a row of shells. I am pleased with how it turned out.


Interlocking Filet Dishcloth

I made this really cool dishcloth for February’s Crochet List dishcloth exchange out of the Interlocking Filet stitch. Sorry for the crappy pics – I ended up taking them at the post office. I absolutely love how the square turned out! Once I got the hang of how the filet interlocked, it was very easy, and I think I will make more of these in the future.
