super speedy

This hook is amazing... I don't think I'm going to want to give it back!

Earlier I hooked up this jute shopping bag. I'm always amazed at how much this style of bag s-t-r-e-t-c-h-e-s. This one has about 35 - 40 apples inside. Amazing stretch...


I've added a few wooden beads to embellish it.

Time expended? Well under an hour. In fact, you could almost make two in an hour!

The grocery bag looks great and seems to hold an awful lot. Could you lift it with that many apples inside it. Should Cristina be worried about getting it back. Perhaps you need to get one for Christmas.

sue - Cristina should be VERY worried about getting her hook back! Christmas is just too far away for me :)

I could lift the bag, but I wouldn't want to have carried it very far... it's a lotta apples!

that bag rocks! Well, it could hold lots of rocks. Thats not the point. The bag is cool. I likes it. Did you make it up as you go?

tea - thanks... just made it up as I went along... it's super simple, and once I work out my sizing I will post the pattern

hooray! I only have a 15mm hook (not as cool as you are LOL) but I look forward to the pattern!

stramenda - do you honestly believe that I am EVER giving this hook back??? I lurve it ;)

tea - I only have a 20.0mm hook because I stole, I mean 'borrowed' it from stramenda - you will love the pattern... it is so simple!
