So. Nate let me buy a new coat for this winter, which, trust me, is a good thing. My old one was getting rather worn.
Anyway, I decided while there, to make a crocheted handbag. So I picked up some really cool bulky weight wool yarn. I have no pattern, no formal idea of how this is going to turn out, just a neat basketweave stitch I recently taught myself. It will be interesting to see how this turns out.
