No sooner had I finished my second practically perfect granny square bag than I started on a third, only the third one is going to be a bit smaller as I am making to for someone who likes a bag that tends toward medium rather than ginormous.
To that end, I did the math and decided on a scheme for reducing the size of some of the granny squares.
It all adds up on paper, but I have not taken the time to sketch it out to see how the proportions will look, so I am both optimistically curious and a bit cautions.
But today, I threw that caution to the wind, got out my hook and my yarn and set to work.
Guided by the color choices I made on a previous project I managed to finish four of the smaller squares in what was for me, record time:
I got all but the last round completed of another smaller square:
I nearly finished a larger square:
and I got a start on the second larger square:
Then, because I love group photos so much, I got this one of most of the nearly completed squares in one possible arrangement:
As I continue to work on what is turning out to be a series of bags, I can see that each bag has its own personality and that that personality is reflected in the colors I use and how I arrange them, and this one is — so far — the sassiest of the three.
Tomorrow promises lovely light by which to crochet, and my hope is that I can get all of the granny squares for the body of the bag completed, plying my craft as I always do: one stitch at a time.
