Tote Bag Barry is one of, at last count, five canvas tote bags I use to carrying and keep my various crochet projects in. Tote Bag Barry is a memento from a road trip through Germany’s Romantic Road. I bought him at a supermarket near the Neuschwanstein Castle for a few Euro’s – much cheaper than the tote bags in Hohenschwangau village at the foot of the castle.

Me: Hi Barry. Thank you for taking the time to chat with me today.

Barry: That’s all right. I wasn’t doing much anyway sitting here on the chair in your living room with Crochet Mood Blanket 2014.

Me: I know you don’t have a very exciting life at the moment, especially compared to your time in the REWE Supermarket in Schwangau with all the tourists admiring you. You have to remember that I was one of those admiring tourists and when I saw you I just knew you would be another perfect bag to carry my crochet around.

Barry: Yes but you could take me out of the house once in a while you know. The tree hugging “My Green Bag” cotton bag from the health shop goes to work with you every day!

Me: You’re right Barry, but I keep you at home because you are so much bigger than any of my other tote bags. You’re keeping Crochet Mood Blanket 2014 company and he’s growing every day. By the way, thank you so much for keeping him from unravelling the other day. I really wouldn’t have been able to keep him happy if you hadn’t told him about the diary. I need you around to keep CMB2014 in check. Just like the Neuschwanstein Castle printed on your front, you are a stable influence and impressive, I dare say noble, presence on that chair.

Barry: Well if you put it that way I guess I can overlook the disappointing lack of excursions.

Me: Thank you for understanding Barry. You are my German prince! As CMB2014 gets bigger you soon won’t have to keep him safe any more. I promise to then swap you for the health shop tote bag and you can go with me to work. Will that make you happy Barry?

Barry: Ja. Vielen dank.

Me: You’re welcome Barry.
