Under The Bridge: Off da Hook

The Name

Under The Bridge by Red Hot Chili Peppers

This is my homeless series of bags: the other two are called Gypsy Woman and Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?

The Bag

Dimensions: 29 inches squared; 16-inch depth from point of intersection

I should’ve followed the pattern, but wanted a bigger bag, as I am a big guy, homeless people have a lot of stuff to carry, and the other guild members could use this bag considering the amount of yarn I see them lugging around the meeting.

Destination still to be determined.

Stray Cat Strut by Stray Cats

The Cush Tush

Dimensions: 14-inch diameter

This time I was determined to work in double crochet for faster turnaround. Well I finished this one is less than a day, so that’s cool! I originally started with a square but have forgotten the formula for a square design, with no holes, in-the-round. Now that I’ve made a round one, I am thinking of different shapes; maybe a star one! Color selections were random reaches into my bag o’ scraps of worsted yarn.

I apologize for my crappy photography; I can no longer remain still long enough for good focus.
