My first attempt was when I was in 6th form.
(I learned to play Bridge (amongst other things) in 6th form too..but that's another story!)
I crocheted myself a bag in which to keep my tennis balls. I'll never forget it as this bag was bright red and black...and soooo cool hanging on my shoulder. ;-)
Anyway, enough of delving into my sporty past, apart from to say that this crocheted tennis bag saved me from a nasty accident, when one day, I was walking by the Old Exeter Road, in Newton Abbot, on a very narrow pavement.
A car came on to the kerb and hit my side..but I was ok as the bag and the tennis balls acted as padding ! Good job... as I was skinny in those days!
Thank god for crochet is what I say;-)
And lovely books like this.. (which were not available when I was in 6th form)
I acquired it recently..and love it!
(The Book Depository is cheapest)
I have others...which I'll show another time..except for this one below, (I think it was a Patons booklet similar to this, which I used all those years ago ) which makes me laugh...do you dress up to do your crocheting?
And you may have noticed my lovely (rather bright) pink string bag, picked up at the M&S food checkout in Exeter on Saturday (went lovely with the lad's gown and mortar board ;-)
Joking aside..brill for keeping your Rowan yarn..string it up somewhere handy to
show it off at its best ;-)
They do a lime green one too..one to get another day for sure!
