hello im tracy from manchester england, i used to crochet a lot in my teen to twenties, then the family came along, my eldest daughter has got me back into working with needles again after teaching her to knit, one of my best items i crocheted was a bag so i have a yearning to do it again. got hooks got dk wool but forgot the pattern doh. looking forward to refreshing my memory and creating some pieces in my spare time, very few places sell wool especially the finer/thinner types i would like to attempt. its a case of chariety shop finds as and when. looking forward to being more adventerous with patterns and projects.
Tracy - the following pattern is absolutely my favorite purse pattern: http://alittleloopybutimhooked.blogspot.com/2012/04/fat-bag-even-fatter-my-new-favorite.html. Hope you like it too! Be sure to follow the link to putting a liner in it (almost a necessity if you don't want anything to poke through). I've made three of these so far.
