I continue inching forward

Yesterday, right after I dropped my son off for his before school band rehearsal, I headed over to Durham so I could take my mother to an appointment with the doctor who treats her back situation.

Because of where I was in my granny square project, and because the treatments are now administered at a larger, clinic where the parking is not as close, I opted to bring along something simpler to carry that had been tempting me for quite awhile.

Using a partial skein of the light gray Red Heart Super Saver that was left over from my “Rhapsody in Gray” project, a 4.0 mm hook, and this free pattern, I spent my waiting time working one round and then another, and before I knew it, my mom was ready to go home, and I had gotten this far with my elephant-to-be:

Today, however, once I had my son dropped off at school and the dog walked, I was footloose and fancy free, so using the same 4.0 mm hook and a panoply of yarns, I got to work finishing the squares I hope will complete my bag. Shortly after 2:00 pm, I finished them:

I finally finish the requisite two-round grannies for my granny square bag

Two errands and a couple of hours later, I had made even more progress, having not only cut out the fabrics that will be used to make the inner and outer linings of the bag-to-be, but also having pinned the edges that need to be sewn:

I finish sewing six of the seams for the inner and outer lining

Tomorrow’s weather is supposed to be overcast with periods of rain, and I am hoping that it is the perfect weather for finishing a granny square bag.
