I hope you had a fun and safe 4th of July holiday. I pretty much spent mine inside crocheting all day. (I'm such an old lady sometimes!) Anywho, I was planning to write this post last night before bed, but after all the hook work and the heat (my AC is still waiting to be fixed...) I just went to sleep.
So, here is my belated What's on My Hook.
I spent the day working on a flat bottom granny stripe bag. The majority of the yarn is wool throughout except for the stripes, they're acrylic. I used Lion Brand Fisherman Wool, Paton's Classic Wool (both dark brown), Red Heart Fire Red, & Red Heart Gold. The lining is yellow cotton with a cardboard insert for stability.

The only things left to do before the bag is totally finished are to sew in the lining and put an edging around the strap. I don't like how clearly you can see the decreases. But yeah, this was my 4th of July project and I crocheted until my fingers were cramped and my hands hurt. That's dedication. lol.
Now, as much as I like this design and the size of this bag, I think it may be a little impractical, but I'm still going to use it. Maybe as a weekend bag or a shopping bag. What do you think??
