While I know how to knit, it tends to put me to sleep – literally. and there are things one can do with crochet that you can’t do with knitting, and vice versa.
Recently One of the Yarn companies had posted a free pattern for a crocheted tote. Offered as a full kit for $$$ or a free pattern. Even though I did not have the right weight yarn, or the right size hook, forged ahead anyway.
instead of being sort of like a market tote, per the pattern, it ended up more as a bucket tote. Messed up on the handles though as I did the chain too loose for the tightness of the stitch and they ended up a little funky. Usually I’m too tight on the starting chain, guess I overcompensated!!
