First crochet post of the day

On Saturday we went to a birthday dinner for Tony's mum. To which I wore my favourite dress and a pretty new cardigan. But in the afternoon I realised that I didn't have a suitable bag (I'm sure Tony will disagree..!), so what's a girl to do?!

I crocheted one, of course! Because I can do crochet, me. I still can't get over the fact that I only learnt to crochet 2½ months ago, and here I am, just whipping things up in an afternoon. It just totally blows my mind.

Anyway, this was a fairly easy bag, and it worked up pretty fast as well. It's basically just rounds of double crochet (US term) and spaces, until the bag was big enough. And the string was just a multiple of chain stitches until it was long enough. Too long it turned out, but never mind.
