After frogging the little dress, I decided to turn this Sugarwheel “Glazed Donut” into another Hobo Bag. I think this yarn will be perfect for a bag – it seems a little thicker to me than the usual worsted weight yarn and a little stiffer too.
I really like the way the stripes are working up. The coral color is not my usual choice so it’s kind of a nice change. I’ve been doing so much in purples and blues (my favorites) and tried to branch out a little with my yarn choice this time.
I don’t know if you can see the duct tape on my CrochetLite hook. The grippy part started to come off so…I just duct taped it. I’m sure there’s probably a more elegant solution to fix it but that’s what I had on hand. 🙂
I’m really hoping to finish this project this weekend so I can get on to the next. I saw this bag on Crafternoon Treats on Pinterest and now I’m obsessed. I’m thinking of using some of the Moogly CAL 2017 squares I already have made as it calls for 12 inch squares OR making a bunch of square #1 in the Sugarweel Pixie Twist.
My only problem is the lining. I am awful at sewing. Not being self-deprecating- it’s just the truth. I cannot sew at all. And oh, I have tried. I attempted quilting before I got into crochet and the results were comical. But I will give it a go again! It’s just hidden inside the bag anyway, right? 🙂
