Time: 1 week
(20 minutes in the mornings and whole evenings)
I have learned to crochet, first in English, now in French!
Last Saturday I was at Walmart for a 1 hour shopping until Marius’s photos were being processed. Obviously half the time I was in the sewing isle deciding what thread to buy. You know! is it too little, is it too much, does it cost a fortune? should I get green? I like the blue, oh that lilac is so pretty! Off…just two of these denim blue balls were left, I grabbed them and crossed my fingers hoping it would be sufficient. It was!
Since last Saturday this is what I have been doing in the car to/from work (Marius was doing the driving of course!) and every night: a whole week of looping yarn around.
Here is the top from Phildar ( I added two more straps that tie over the shoulders and made it just a little longer by adding 2 rows of 4 treble stitches in every fourth stitch).
All I need now is to learn how to crochet from Russian patterns, as there are gorgeous cheap Russian knitting and crochet magazines around here.

Thank you Tany for the patterns and thanks for the internet, as I had to do a little translating and a lot of google-ing to get this done.
Needless to say, I could not have done it without those precious videos from nexstitch.com.
