Mary Poppins Purse

Crochet projects go with me everywhere; on the bus, in the car, waiting at appointments, on the couch or at friends houses.  I have a Mary Poppins Purse that i have reserved just for crocheting so it's constantly filled with yarn, patterns, hooks, scissors, stuffing, buttons and all sorts of odds and ends.
Taa Daa, the purse:
I really like it since it have two pockets on the front.  I normally have the hook for my current project in the pocket on the left (possibly more than one) and my phone, earphones and bus pass in the pocket on the right.  This way my phone does not get scratched by crochet hooks but everything has it's place.

Hello wonderful world of blogging.  This is my first blog.  How exciting!  I thought I would try blogging to share my love for the craft of crochet.  I learned to crochet in October of 2011.

Before October

I thought yarn crafts were not for me.  I did not understand why anyone would want to take a piece of yarn and make it into something else.

After October

I don't know how to stop myself from crocheting.  It has become a lifestyle, it has grown my patients and it has definitely given my mind a workout.  Now I crochet everywhere, on the bus, at work (on break), while watching tv, when I have to wait for someone, or while on a road trip (not driving).  I have a bag of works-in-progress with me at just about all times. Oh, the addiction is strong!
