Crochet Update: Washbag!

I have finished my summer sweater (now that Autumn has truly begun) and I had just enough extra yarn to make this:

It's a large washbag from The Art of Crochet. The pattern library that is building up has so many projects in it that I want to do! There's no point making a list even. They're all pretty much winners. I enjoyed whipping up this bag worked in individual rounds with ribbons sewn in.

There was something at the top called crab stitch. You do the stitch as normal, but you work left to right instead of right to left. It's weird but I got the hang of it in the end. What fun!! And now I have a piece of luggage made specially for my weekend getaway... only a few more days to go!
