Now where did I see that?

Anyone seen my little doo-hickey thumb drive which takes the pictures from my camera chip and places them on my PC? I've seen it, really, I have....I just don't remember where! Another sign that I am sick! I can normally find anything......organized chaos - I could have a pile of crap on my floor in my bedroom and my mom would ask me for something and I could walk to that pile and un-erringly pull out exactly what she was looking for.....or if she could not find something around the house she would call me (even after I had moved away) to ask me if I knew where it was and 8 times out of 10 I would!

So its back to the handy and trusty cell phone for todays pics......I can not give you a finished item today but I can show you what I am making!

Here it is....

The Larger Than Life bag from Interweave Crochet. I have finished all of the squares and am about half way with the side and bottom band.

What makes this fitting for International Crochet Day? Why only this:
Thats right! I am using my hand crafted Jimbo egg-hook on this project!

In other crafty goodness, one of my colleagues gifted my with this pattern booklet today! Perfect timing! She picked it up at a yarn shop on an island close to Malta... I can not remember the name of the island right now...Gosu? Gorsu? Something like that!

A super cute baby pattern booklet! A UK booklet which shall prove a challenge while crocheting, but worth it for the oh so cute patterns in it!

Off to bed now! Happy International Crochet Day!

You mean Corfu? Where the Durrells lived.
Following the UK pattern shouldn't be that difficult, actually, just go down a step each stitch, is you see what I mean :)
Hope you're feeling better.

The Larger Than Life Bag is just great!

What pretty baby outfits. Remember that the British name the crochet stitches differently ir--sc is a dc to us, and a tr is a dc,and so on

I LOVE the bag in progress! I'm sure if you can follow a French or Japanese pattern the UK on will easily doable for you too! Can't wait to see the bag finished, and hope you found the doo-hickey thingy.

The island name is Gozo and is north of Malta and south of Sicily. A nice relaxing and authentic place. They still love knitting and crocheting over there and had 3 old shops in one street of the main city: Victoria.

Your bag will be beautiful when you have time to finish it and will be less occupied by work.

I've been crocheting for 30 years and I have never seen one of those ball crochet hooks. Where did you find one like that? Is it easy to use?
