I've been MIA from the computer lately and becoming at one with my crochet hook again. This also helps me whittle down that yarn stash. Remember, I'm not allowed to buy any more yarn until I get that stash worn down!This is a hat I made for a friend and loved the way it turned out so I'm now in the midst of writing the pattern. I'm thinking of calling it "April Springs".This is another version of a ruffled purse made from some of that Christmas yarn my mother-in-law gave me. The colour doesn't really show up well here, but it reminded me of the skin of a peach with yellows, golds and reds, very pretty.
