Plarning again!

Hello, you wonderful blog readers, you! I hope everyone had (and is still having!) a wonderful holiday. I'm off the day job this week so I'm hoping to get a lot of stuff done around here, creatively speaking, but have managed to do nothing so far but get up just before noon and eat Christmas deserts for breakfast. *sigh* I get one day of recuperation though, right? Right. Thanks! :)

Anyway, if you've been with me for a while, you may remember when I started making these plarn bags (here, here and here). Well, since I finally found myself with some down time, after the show, and after the Christmas craziness, I decided to start that up again.  It's a really fun and easy project and it really speaks to my inner hippie so I'm having a grand ol' time with it. :)

I really love the texture of these bags.  It's so fun to see them coming along.  Here's where I'm at now:

And I know I'm making this plarning business sound really easy (because it is!) but it is not without its inherent  difficulties...especially if you're a crazy cat person like myself.  This is what I woke up to the other morning:

Yeah.  Laugh now, Moe.  You better just thank your lucky stars you're so darn cute.

Hey there! No I haven't really. This is one of my "back burner" projects. Haha. I crocheted one big, long, sturdy handle. But I've yet to attach it. Any ideas?! :)
