I've done quite a bit on Lucy's Attic24 crochet bag - just a couple more rows, then I do the ruffle edge. And I'm re-reading Persuasion along with Rachel who's got a discussion going on her blog.
Making this bag is a way of trying to use up yarn, so it's not a lovely thing like Lucy's, with her carefully chosen colors. And because of all the colors, there's still so much yarn left! But I haven't crocheted in years, and this is a fun and easy project; if it comes out well, I may do another.
If you haven't read any Jane Austen, Persuasion would be a good place to start - it's short, for one thing. And a very satisfying love story, for another.
Thank you, Ginny!
