After yesterday evening's dinner rush concluded and Young Son was safely engrossed in his pre-bedtime activities, I sat down with a wad of plastic grocery bags and a pair of scissors to make me some plarn.
Last time I engaged in plarn production it seemed to take forever to generate enough to make a bag. But last night, in just over two hours (with occasional interruptions) I managed to cut, loop, and wind a 3 oz ball of plarn. My monster bag weighs only 12 oz.
I may be crocheting before I know it!
As I mentioned before, I'm planning on reproducing the size and shape of a WM bag. But last night as I was cutting, I got the impression that there might possibly be two sizes; perhaps one used by the cashiers and one used at the self-checkout stations. I'll do some measuring tonight and see if I can confirm that. If that's the case, then I shall reproduce the larger.
See? This is what happens when I enter Project Mode. Just imagine what would happen if I spent all of that mental energy on something productive. The mind boggles.
