I belong to a couple of different sewing groups and several of the women are what we refer to as Snow Birds – people who spend the winter in the south, thus avoiding our frigid Michigan winters. Most of these ladies participate in sewing groups in their winter communities. One spring after the Snow Birds had returned, the lady next to me chatted about all the new and interesting projects she’d worked on down south, including crocheting with plastic bags instead of yarn. Crocheting with plastic bags? I had a lot of them at home.
By last Thanksgiving, I was ready to start again. I couldn’t find the pattern I’d used the first time, but I found another one I liked even better. I made three of them with various colored stripes. And then my mom told me she wanted one with a longer handle, so I made one for her.
Making the plastic yarn (some websites call it plarn):
Francie wants to get her PhD and become an archaeologist, like her famous father. The sudden invitation to participate in a dig on the beautiful Greek island of Paros is a wonderful opportunity. She has no time for distractions like Alex, the handsome Project Director. Experience has taught her to stay clear of handsome, charismatic Greek men.
On the shores of the Aegean Sea, Alex and Francie work together, searching for treasures from Greece's past. While pursuing their goals, they discover some of the truths they had believed to be carved in stone may have been flawed.
