String, string's a marvellous thing

Since my clothes making isn't going so well at the moment I thought I'd stick up a pic of this string thing I'm making from the Erika Knight's Simple Crochet book (obviously I haven't learned my lesson about attempting to make tasteful objects after the last debacle.) Well, I say "I'm making", actually I haven't done anything to it for weeks now.

Why? Because it's bloody hard work, that's why. Crocheting baskets with string may be all well and good in Ms Knight's household, but in mine it leads to nothing but callouses and misery. I'll finish it off eventually. Just need to wait till the welts have cleared up.

Thanks for leaving a comment on my blog. It is good to find a like minded soul.

As regards the basket making, what type of string are you using? It looks to me, from the photo, as though it is not that stiff. I was thinking of trying the same pattern but have not quite got round to it (the jewellery as taken over a little). Good to see you experimenting with other fibres though!

Hey Mikol,
It's just normal parcel string from Woolies. It's not that stiff, but I think that it will end up being fine for storing cosmetics in etc.
