crochet with plarn

This week, I took a little break from making sock monkeys. I've been feeling rubbish - in more ways than one! I have been crocheting with plarn (plastic carrier bags turned into yarn). If you'd like to know how to make plarn, have a look at this super easy YouTube video. It's easy-peasy-lemon-squeezy!


I thought it would be funky to make a plastic shopping bag out of recycled plastic shopping bags. However, I now realise that it would have been much quicker if only I had known how to crochet granny squares. Ah well, maybe next time. I'll let you know when I've finished making this bag. I bought lots of socks ready to be made into monkeys, so I'll show you those too. I'll report after the weekend. Cheerio for now.
