Tunisian Crochet, and Video How To's!

A couple of weeks ago, we had to close the shop on a Monday because of the big 3 foot snowstorm. Barb wasn't scheduled to work that day, and as she was completely snowed in, she decided to start a new project.

She'd been itching to test out the new Denise Interchangeable Crochet Hook Set, so she went to their website and found a free pattern for a little bag. She had a skein of Lamb's Pride Worsted at home in one of the variegated colors (Elderberry Wine) so she thought she'd play around with it.

The Denise website is FULL of instructional videos for Tunisian crochet. So in a matter of minutes, Barb was already a pro.

It was so much fun, that before she knew it, she'd completed this adorable bag! She's already thinking about ways to make a similar, yet slightly larger, one.

How great would this be done in spring colors and used as a little Easter basket? Or done in cotton or hemp and used as a market bag?
