I wasn’t too thrilled with the striping sequence at first, I expected more orange and lime green from the way the colours looked in the ball. After I turned the heel of the first sock I was much happier, I think I just needed more stripes in order to appreciate the way they looked.
My third 12 in 2012 project and my first crochet project is complete. Well actually it’s been finished and in use for a few weeks but I just took photos recently.
I love my Granny Square bag. I’ve been using it as my crochet project bag, and something about a crochet bag holding crochet projects just tickles me. I ended up changing a few of the squares in order to get the finished look I wanted. So the squares with yellow outer rounds were frogged back and the yellow replaced with blue.
I want to add a lining to the bag, in order to keep from being paranoid that my crochet hook is going to work it’s way out the holes and end up getting lost. I haven’t got there yet, but since it’s in use I’m calling it complete.
So far this pattern is very addictive, I just want to keep going around in circles! After one night of crocheting it’s 11″ across. I know each round will take longer, but it just seems to be going very quickly, even though I’m not a fast crocheter yet.
