I Love To Crochet, But I'm No Expert...

My Ma-Maw taught me to crochet when I was about ten or so, after my mama tried to teach me and gave up--lol--in a fit of impatience.  Seems I didn't hold the crochet hook "correctly," and that must have bugged my mama or something, I'm not sure.  Anyway, my Ma-Maw (mama's mom) said, "let the child hold the hook any way she wants, as long as she gets it right," and she taught me the stitches.  I'm no expert/pro, but I can follow basic patterns.  

Right now, I'm making a long shoulder bag from a pattern I found that is supposed to be a produce bag.  I'm using a multi-color yarn called "Peruvian Print"...I'll post a pic when it's finished.

I love that orange and green!! I haven't given myself enough time to crochet a bag yet, but I have knit some grocery bags for my mother on Mother's Day. Please post a pic when you're done. I'm sure it will be gorgeous!

The colors remind me of fall. Please do post a pic when you are finished with the work. Would love to see it.
