Spike bag with Windmist

Okay, so the Windmist brushed acrylic yarn Fiona sent me was calling out to be a bag, so I moped around the net and hassled Cordelia all day a bit, before rediscovering the Spike stitch bag at Crochet Me. Here is my version:

which looks absolutely nothing like the designer‘s. That’s why she is a designer and I am a copycat.

As I hate seaming, I decided to crochet in rounds, with a Crystalite size G/6 4.00 mm hook. I also turned the finished tube upside down to fix the bottom.

And here is another photo with my foot for scale.
Please don’t mention the clashing colours of the bag, I give a very good impression of being colour-blind even when I’m not.

The thing still needs handles, more of which in my next post.

Weird fact #1. The fuzz is mostly concentrated on the “wrong side” of the bag, why?

Update: Or what makes a scientific mind! Noricum gave me the answer to my weird fact question:

The fuzz is probably mostly on the inside because when you pull the yarn from back to front, the fuzz gets left behind.

Now why couldn’t I think of that?

In love with sewing, weaving, crochet, and with bags and pouches and fabric. I love colour and pattern and texture. I love having my hands busy. Some day I hope my craft will become my day job.

  1. Cool toe ring! LOL! Oh yeah, the bag looks nice too! Can’t wait to see the finished product after the handles are added.

    I don’t know if this helps or not but sometimes, even with flash and all, my photos come out too dark to accurately depict the colors of something. You might want to adjust the brightness some if that is also your trouble.

    PS – The colors looked fine to me!
