My post-state-fair stupor is beginning to lift, but I have not quite shaken it, and when I do, I find that there are any number of household chores clamoring for my attention.
So this morning, once I had attended to a few of the household tasks that had been set aside as a result of my state fair efforts as well as a few of the chores that crop up every day, I was able to focus my attention on my current front burner project: the unfelted fat bag.
I am anxious to finish this project because I will use the information gathered to finish the felted version, and while I didn’t finish all of the crochet that needed doing, I did get within five rounds of completing the body of the bag:
and I finished four of the six hyperbolic curlicues that will be used to make a tassel that will serve (in conjunction with a crocheted loop) as a closure for this bag-to-be:
and it seems to me that the curlicues will add just the right amount of joi to this project.
Tomorrow, I will probably start my crochet day by weaving in the loose ends that have accumulated on this project, and then I will finish crocheting the body of the bag and begin the process of determining how I will finish the bag.
I am particularly looking forward to figuring out how to put the tassel together, because I don’t think it is possible for a project to have too many hyperbolic curlicues.
