falling in love ... again

i don't know what to say ... but i'm totally smitten with crochet right now. completely.

i still want to knit, but i want to crochet even more.

perhaps i'm bored with stockinette fabric, and even crochet, in its most basic stitch, still can bring a smooth yarn to life, with texture.

i just finished a crochet bag as well --- and am still working on the crochet top.

but, here's the bag:

it was a blast to crochet (okay, that feels a bit weird, to say crochet vs knit). but, i did enjoy the process.

so, i've been perusing ravelry a lot lately, looking at crochet top patterns (ie: tee's, pullovers, etc).  --- things for summer. of course, now that i'm done with this bag, i should turn my attention back to the little red top.

i love the bag, and i know how you feel about crochet. i love to do both but crochet is just so fast. is it possible to learn the pattern for the bag?
thank you for an excellent blog

I'm smitten with crochet too. I love knitting but I love crochet too...maybe even a bit more. It's so much fun! It's nice to be able to switch back and forth. I love your bag! Happy crocheting! :-D

I like crochet almost as much as knitting. What a great looking bag!
