Crafty crocheting

I can't crochet.

I can't knit.

Whew, now I feel better, getting that off my chest.

Clarence and the girls all crochet. The girls knit, too.

A few minutes ago, Julianne showed me this little cupcake she crocheted. Without a pattern.
I'm very impressed.

Since it's a slow news day around here, I decided to take a picture of it and post it here. Then I got thinking about the tote bags that Clarence has crocheted out of store bags. I had to take a picture of my tote bag next.

Clarence has made several large totes over the last few years. His mom taught him to crochet as a kid, then, a few years ago, taught him how to turn the plastic bags into "yarn" and make things with it.
I'm very impressed.

Although I thought his bags were cool, they weren't all very pretty. He made this bag to order, just for me. I asked if he could put hearts on it and he figured out a pattern for them (using one of my cookie cutters). I love it and have carried it for several years now. It holds a ton!

Am I going to learn to crochet or knit? Are you kidding?
