As the previous post indicated, I recently learned to crochet. And by recently, I mean last night. Because of my long years of experience with knitting, crocheting really wasn't that hard to learn. I thought it would be, and it took me a few hours to get my groove, but I found it, and now I have completed 2 projects. Since last night. I'm just that awesome, folks. That, and the projects were small and easy, but they were also fun to make. I made a soap bag. Anyone who doesn't know what that is, it's exactly as the name says. A bag, that you can put soap into. I had seen it in the same book I learned from, and made my first project, the flower. I got it in my head that I would much rather use this for my kids, than using a facecloth. I never seem to get quite enough soap on the darn things to do any good. But with the bag, you use it "as is", meaning you leave the soap in this incredibly lacy bag, and wash your babies! Then, you can hang it up on your tap with the drawstring holder. It looks awesome, and I can't wait to use it! (More on that later. It looks like it would do an amazing job, but I don't know for sure yet.)
P.S. I added new pictures, including the soap bag and the colors of the sea set. Enjoy!
