Train WIPs February

IMG_0395

I used to be a monogamous crocheter but at some point I found myself having 2 or 3 projects at the same time. Lately I have one project for home, usually something either big or a bit more complicated, and then a couple for my commute, which have to be easy to work and small enough to carry.

My home project at the moment is the Kolika top I mentioned in my last post, since it is a garment it requires my attention and the ability to try it on as I go, which would be a bit tricky to do while I commute (and even more weird than just crocheting on a train). For the train I have been working on two new designs: my moroccan tote and a pair of tunisian fingerless gloves with some leftover yarn from my Uva shawl.

I finished one mitt but I have to say the moroccan bag is getting all the spotlight lately, I just love how it is turning out. I have done quite a bit more since I took this picture, I am more than halfway through what will be a tote size bag. I will take some more pictures this weekend to show you how it is coming along.

I am browsing for some brown leather handles for it, very exciting πŸ™‚

What is on your hook right now? Let me know in the comments, would love to hear what you guys are working on!

That is it for me today, I have to set some time aside to take pictures for another tunisian pattern, hope I get time to do that this weekend. I also want to tell you more about how those resolutions are coming along so expect another post on that soon. I am off now to do some yoga (told you the resolutions were doing well!), have a great weekend everyone!

    1. Thank you! Yes, it is one of my own patterns πŸ™‚ I am nearly finished with the crocheting but need to add the handles and line it which I am sure will take even longer! I will keep posting updates on it πŸ˜‰

  1. Love that gold. I am working on an open tote. Nearly done, then must line it. And an afghan, for an eternity it seems I’ve been working on that one. Must sit more (minus a computer!). πŸ™‚

    1. I saw one of your totes in your blog, lovely pattern! What kind of afghan is it? I have a granny square blanket that has not been touched in almost a year :S I do have a blanket design in mind that will probably get a priority so it will stay untouched for a while… That definitely classifies as an UFO!

      1. That reminded me I must type that bag pattern up as it was requested. errr, no pressure…
        It is the hexagon afghan from Attic 24. I have been working on it off and on for almost two years (pictured beneath pillows in a post of mine). I think as I pick it up every couple of months I will not put it in the UFO bin just yet. Though I have some very lonely fingerless gloves there that would like some company πŸ˜‰ .
        It’s all good, lovely to have choices right?!

      2. You should definitely write the pattern for it, it is usually harder to just sit down and do it than actually writing it hahaha
        I really want to make loads and loads of blankets from Attic 24 but I really have no idea when I would do that! Can’t really bring it on the train either…
        You are doing a lot better than me if you pick it up every now and then πŸ™‚ Oh yes… who wants to be a monogamous crocheter? hahahaha

  2. Looking forward to seeing it finished. It is such a beautiful colour. You might find some handles at EYF. I bought some leather ones at Woolfest (2 yrs ago).

    1. I just posted an update on this tote, loving it! Thanks for the tip, bought them online and I am quite pleased with them. I haven’t been no Woolfest but after the EYF this year I think I might start going to many other wool festivals… πŸ˜›
      Thanks for stopping by!
