Mixed Grill Bowling Bag

First there was this...



Then there was this...



Give your barbecue tongs a clink for the newest grillalicious accessory to hit the Project Wrongway runway, the Mixed Grill Bowling Bag!



Okay, let me just say, before proceeding with the meaty details of this item, that this bag is modeled after an actual bowling bag. It is not an actual bowling bag and will not hold a ball. It's definitely sturdy, but I bowling balls are heavy peeps and this is made from yarn. However, it warms my heart that you all think that I possess the skill to make something so, well, functional.

Okay, let's move on shall we?

I definitely took this bag to the next level. I don't really know what level that happens to be, but hey, no matter. An evolution is an evolution.

So, in addition to the steak, we've got a few standard Monster Crochet motifs such as kebabs...



As well as cheeseburgers and franks...



Like its predecessor, This bag is highly constructed, roomy and equipped with zippage. And this one is all mine! No, shipping to a publisher; never be seen again other than on a printed page. Mine, mine mine! Unless of course the offspring fancies it. In that case, it'll be hers, hers, HERS!

Ahem...

Crochet Stats-O-Rama
Fibers: Rio de la Plata in heated coals color, medium rare burger color, slightly cooked meat color, American cheese color, and metal skewer color. Cascade Pastaza in grill color, hot dog color, onion color, tomato color and green bell pepper color. Pity those poor yarn store employees who actually attempt to help me upon my entrance into their shop. They have no idea what they're getting into...
Hook: US G Hook
Pattern: Moi

Awww man! You shattered my dreams of strolling into the local alley with is lil gem and lifting my bowling ball from its dark recess while everyone stares with envy. Dang it...

Sus said...

This is my favorite mixed grill item yet!! Frabulous!!

Ellen Bloom said...

LOVE IT!!!! SO MUCH!!!!
Think of all the gigantic knitting and crochet projects you can tote around in it. If it were mine, I'd cover it with some sort of sofa plastic to preserve it's gorgeousness and give it more of that retro look!

Steve said...

That is GREAT! Just don't really keep raw meat and food inside...

MonkeyGurrrrrl said...

:) OF course, it's amazing. And so kind of you to offer to give it up to the offspring.

Delish as always...a bag you can really sink your teeth into!

And just for you, I've put a pic on the blog taken at Blessing of the Cars a couple of years ago. *smoochies*

Renee said...

I love it! I would totally use one of those bags as a purse/craft carryall. I think the kebab is my favourite, but heck they're all great!

Imaginary Maggie said...

I'm an avid knitter but now I SIMPLY HAVE TO LEARN HOW TO CROCHET! Please understand that I have been bowling for 14 years and next week I'm in the roll-offs! I might even come home with a big trophy to put on my mantle! How cool would it me if I walked into the finals with that purse? OMG I'm such a midwesterner! Someone make me stop yelling!

I love it! For a moment I thought that the names of the yarn colors were really called heated coals, medium rare burger, slightly cooked meat and American cheese. :D

Momo said...

Ah! That's so great. I especially adore the Kebabs.

Lindsey said...

I bow down in your presence... I love the bag! Can we expect to see it appear on just charts by any chance? Please oh please?

Shell said...

Classic lines, wonderful construction and prone to inducing fits in Vegans and P.E.T.A. Love it.

Batty said...

Classic and yet refreshingly different. Makes me want to get out the barbecue grill this very second!
