Crochet Work from the Previous Week

I am pleased to say that I am getting much quicker with my crocheting these days.  I completed the tote in a day and a half...the previous one took me the better part of a week.  I got a lot done last week and wanted to post my progress.  The crafty feast is coming up in less than a month so I will be a crocheting mad-woman the next four weeks!

Realistically I am probably not going to have as much inventory for the Crafty Feast as I would have demand so I decided to take pictures of my completed work to have on display to take orders during the event.

So here is what I did.  I started on a crochet tank top from The Happy Hooker on Friday night and finished on Saturday afternoon.  I used Bernat Satin sportweight yarn in Taupe which is beautiful. I loved the results and am going to change the pattern in the back to button it down fully in the back.  I started the tote on Wednesday evening and finished Thursday night (although I did the handles on Friday morning).  Of course there is the purselet I have posted about previously.  I am going to start on another purselet today and anticipate having it completed by this evening.
Here is the tote. I made up the pattern as I went along.  I frogged a square bag I had made over the Memorial Day weekend to make this tote.  I wasn't happy with the square bag even if it did take the better part of a week to make.  I like this bag a lot more and would make a great grocery tote (go green!).
Next week is strictly earring week.  I have to make up a lot of inventory and I will post my process.  I have a new series I'm calling Divinity and will be sure to post them :-).
