Bottomless

Any traveller on Indian Railways will know there is crochet on the train. Bottle holders in the AC coaches are made by hooks. As I travelled to Hyderabad last night, I noticed this:

I think that phone camera photo is too dark, but that holder can no longer hold a bottle. It is, in effect, bottomless. And thus, paradoxically, filled with nothing.

Before leaving, I managed to pick up that final (as in currently available to me) hank and managed a few more squares. When I stopped, I had this:

Likely if I had started a little earlier, I’d have finished this too. This square and half of another, I reckon.

Question to my readers. I’m writing these posts on my iPad. And uploading smallish images. What is the quality of these pictures that you see on your screens?

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. I remember those bags made with squeaky plasticy type yarn(?). I’m reading your blog on my desktop right now and the pictures are clear.

    • Nylon-ish. Quite tough on the fingers. It’s like this clothesline. I remember buying a hank once, but I could never tame it into shape and finally I gave up.
