So I have this obsession of crocheting/knitting using other materials other than yarn. I've tried plarn (not quite successful), and plant fiber (not quite successful too). And this time, I used a colourful rope to create this bag... (success... finally).
At first I tried to crochet it using a big hook, but turns out, even though it feels limp to the touch, the rope is really very hard to crochet and it hurts the fingers very much. (Or maybe I forgot to try my biggest hook.)
Anyway, in the end I frogged the crocheted bag when I finally received my huge knitting needles. I used 12mm needles for this bag. Sooooo easy and fun, it was a breeze!
Lesson: When it's too hard to crochet, knit it.
All in all, it was a satisfying finish. Hooray!!!
