My first crochet project

Tada!  It’s a likkle bag!  A bit wonky but cute enough to be allowed house room 🙂

The pattern called for some stitches I haven’t learned yet so I improvised a little.  Although it would be quite easy to look up some videos, I really don’t want to learn from videos (yet) as then class would be quite pointless.  Besides, I might learn the stitches wrong plus I don’t want to skip ahead of others in the class, it’s nice that we’re all beginners together.
