So about a month ago, I made an emergency stop by Rose Path (my local yarn shop) just to sit for a short bit with my friends. Sherri had a beautiful, giant crocheted bag she had made for holding her knitting projects. I must have picked it up and admired it a dozen times while I was sitting there.
She had used two patterns to come up with her big bag. One of the two is the Chunky Crocheted Basket Pattern by Elizabeth Tranthem (Ravelry). This little jewel of a pattern became therapy for me.
It is FAST, EASY and you can FINISH in an evening sitting. When everything else in life seemed to be going on and on and on without end, finishing one of these was a saving grace!!! Thank you, Sherri! On this first one, I used three yarns with a K hook.
Just sharing another of my "happies"... we found this gaudy little wind chime at Pier One. I'm not the only one who loves it; the hummingbirds admire it daily (probably thinking it must be edible!! LOL).
