I felt I needed to make a smallish project that was just for fun,
not following a pattern, not worrying about if it will work or not......
So the other day I was in Lincraft and came across some
packs of yarn from Australian Country Spinners,
obviously discontinued yarn, but this blue bulky yarn was familiar to me
as I had knitted Georgia a scarf out of this yarn a couple of years ago in pink.
I knew I loved the feel of it....
The pack had 4 balls (approx 250gms)
so I thought I might make a bag out of them.
Once I started I realised I probably should get some more,
but of course when I went back the next day there was none the same left.
So I had to improvise, I used 3 strands of Sullivans Cotton-a together
in this lovely Natural colour,
the three strands together seemed to be a very similar size to the bulky yarn
and once crocheted it has a similar feel also.
We travelled to Sydney on Thursdays just for one night
and then back home on Friday.
That was 4/12 hours each way in the car and as Andrew was
driving I decided I might see if I could crochet successfully in the car,
and I could! So it is almost finished.
I hope to share it with you very soon.
Our family continues to pray for all those surrounded by flood waters
and those working hard to clean up after the flooding here in Australia.
May you be blessed with enough strength to carry on in the hard weeks ahead
and may you feel the support from those close at hand
when you need a shoulder to lean on.
