I bought these japanese knit and crochet books way back for my birthday. They are absolutely gorgeous! I'm pretty good at figuring stuff out, especially if there are picture diagrams (which there are in the crochet book), but I can barely read an english knitting pattern. Here's my first attempt at deciphering a japanese knitting pattern. Its supposed to be a net style grocery/market bag. It only fits cat toys.
Totally. Wrong. My second attempt was better, but still not quite right. And sometimes my sweet potatoes fall out of the holes and onto the street. :(
