Foray into the Dark Side

My first crochet project is done!

gold crochet bag

Despite the stitches being terribly uneven I really like this. I had to make it into a bag because I only had 1 ball of Muskat in this colour.

My favourite bit is where the pink joins the gold...

I used a 5mm hook for the body of the bag and 3mm for the gold bit (it's Twilleys Goldfingering) - they're probably the wrong sizes but they were the only hooks I already own and I didn't want to invest in new hooks until I was sure this is something I want to keep doing.

I'm still not sure.
