The two bags I mentioned here are finally done. I'm really not happy with the photos today AND the weather. It was sunny this morning and afternoon. In fact, it was blisteringly HOT! I planned to take photos of the bags and beanie yesterday but it was gloomy and rained a bit. So, I decided to do it today. As I needed to wait for my 'model' to return home from school, it had to be after 5:30PM. By that time(and after waiting for her to finish eating her ice-cream), it rained. Heavily! But luckily, only for awhile. As you can see from the photos, some are dark some are lighter. And it was windy.
Enough about the weather! I crocheted this bag using Acrylic chunky yarns which were bought with the help of my blog friend, MisFyd. Both of the bags were sturdy enough without lining them.
And this bag was crocheted with ICE 'Mesh Wool' yarns. It took 5 1/2 skeins to finish it up.
This was actually my very first slouchy beanie that I attempted to make a few months back. I abandoned it after realizing it didn't turn out right. So, after successfully making 2 previous slouchy beanies, I picked it up again. After frogging half of it and adjusting here and there, it was done.
It is a bit big for Hazel but just right for my head.
I like the color combination. Reminds me of the beach. That's why I named the bags and this beanie 'Sandy Beach Bag', 'Sandy Blue Bag' and 'Sand & Sea Slouchy Beanie'. Not so creative, huh?
Have a great week ahead, everyone!
