I decided to make a market bag (in black cotton)… and so far, it’s working! I haven’t got very far… just a few rows into the base… but it’s going well, and I’m having fun again! Yay! 🙂
Mind you, I didn’t think I would get far at all. I’m using my not-so-favourite (i.e., non-Susan-Bates) hook, and chaining 43 took me at least 20 tries (I’m not exaggerating there). I really hate doing the first chain, and am always incredibly grateful when it’s over. I wonder if that’ll ever change?!
