Upcycled Beginnings

I've been craving a new crochet project, but had no yarn. Then I thought, silly me! I have a boat-load of plastic bags that I claimed this past earth day, so I started two new projects. Here's one ...
I used up all the plarn I had prepared, so now I'll have to make more to continue. Not a problem - I'll be getting that boat-load of bags out tomorrow.

I've always wanted to try that! Maybe I'll try to make a large bag to keep my aluminum recycling in....

It looks like you've gotten bitten by the crocheting with plarn craze too. Let me warn you though, it's very addicting and very hard to stop. Just look at me and my closet full of plastic bags I'm trying to hide. My husband says I'm afflicted. Oh well it's soooo much fun and who can argue with the free materials. Best wishes and happy green crafting to you all!
