Farmer's Market Soap Bag

I love to buy handmade soaps at my local farmer's market. The bars I buy have luscious smells. The guy selling them advises that you keep them in your drawer for a few months, so that they get good and hard and dry. They will last longer and they will make your undies smell very nice.

I crocheted a little bag to hold my soap last night:

This one is made from allhemp3. I designed this as a proto-type for a beginning crochet class. It is super easy, and took me less than an hour, including writing down the pattern, rethinking and editing as I went. I think I will need at least three of these for myself. One for a drawer, and one to hang in my closet while drying (and wafting good smells). The 3rd one will hang in my shower and become my scrubby. I am going to test this one out for a week or so - and if it passes my shower test, I'll put it on my class list.

In other news, I have warped up a "Flip" loom for curtains for a bathroom window. I love how my warp glows! The yarn is 2/17 tsumugi from Habu, sett at 20 e.p.i. The plan, so far, is to do mostly plain weave, with a few rows of texture at the bottom of each panel.
