    Tee hee hee! Yep. Actually, I chose crochet because I'll get a thicker wall when done, and it's a little easier for me to make shaped without having to worry about keeping the stitches on the needles. I love to knit, but I prefer to shape with the hook.

    Did you look for that other thread? I dared EAT many not-so-rare, not-found-in-the-wild, hardly-endangered N. ventrata, and indeed fed them to the entire BACPS. Nom!


    The bag is ready for the hot water wash. It's in there now, actually. Wish it luck!








    Lacking cute, furry models, I went with what was in hand. Or rather, what the hand was on.

    There are definitely a couple things that I want to do over. The peristome is one, though his one does have a certain cartoonish charm. The other is the bottom. I wanted a FLAT bottom, not a football. Still, this can make a fun carryall bag for someone. I'll put it up on Etsy or something later, to exchange it for the funds to get more yarn to try again.

    Thanks, guys!

    I'm still figuring out how to make the peristome a little more realistic, but like I said earlier, I kinda like the cartoonish look of this one. Keep an eye on Etsy in a month or so, once I settle in from the move. Lil needs more yarn $$.

    Would it be possible to put a couple stripes of different colors in the peristome? May help to add more realism..
