After a long time

Knitting with pale cream acrylic yarn

This is the yarn i bought longtime back and i started unevenly with my self-taught knitting knowledge. I frogged the scarf completely after reaching about 10 inches. why??? i thought i would be practical, nobody in chennai wears scarfs… i mean that are knit. so i frogged and thought of making a tote in seed stitch. Here are the pictures of the scarf before i frogged it.

My seed stitch is not so perfect, as you can see the stockinette creeped in between sometimes. I am using UK size 6 needles, I think its US size 8. The yarn gives me 8 rows and 4.5 stitches per inch. I have couple of ideas for the handles but let me finish the tote first before i think of them.

I recently joined crochet_india group on yahoo and its fun to know that there is so much talent here though there is a crunch for good yarn. Here is the crochet motif that am making for a table cloth. The second picture does justice regarding the yarn color. Its a mercedised cotton yarn by Anchor, which is available in 50gm balls for 55 rs or about 1.5 dollars
