In which I finish one bag and start work on another

Mother’s Day is always a productive crochet day for me because not only do I not do any cooking or housework, I feel obligated to enjoy the day with hook and yarn in hand, and this year was no exception.

I had, over the course of the last few days, finished sewing in the lining, added a row of single crochet along the length of fourĀ five-round granny squares, woven in and trimmed the resulting ends so all that was left was to secure the combination edging and strap.

Using my Clover bent-tipped yarn needle and a selection of yarns to match, I carefully secured the finishing edge and straps, and in what seemed both no time and forever, the bag was done.

Here is how it looked on one side:

and here it’s how it looked on the other:

There was still some daylight left to Mother’s Day, so I used what time there was before it would be time to walk the dog to start work on a third, but slightly smaller practically perfect granny square bag.

Using color combinations from the not-quite completed boho heart mandala:

I got a start on the new bag:

Obviously, there is quite a way to go before this third bag is finished, but I will move forward as I always do — one stitch at a time.
