I finish the never-ending square


That is how it felt to work on the second square for a future granny square purse.

It is appropriate that I worked ┬áthe second ten-round square for a new granny square bag that I want to make during that sports event known as “March Madness,” because if I could magically include all of the rounds of crochet I frogged in search of the perfect combination of colors for this square, it’s possible that I could have crocheted a square area large enough to cover a basketball court.

Yesterday — after many ill-fated attempts to find the “right” color I managed to get as far as the seventh round of what was to be the second ten-round square:

The first seven rounds of the never-ending square

Today, after a late start and several missteps, I began fitfully working on rounds eight, nine, and ten.

The day before, when the sun was still high in the sky, I had set aside four colors (Red Heart Super Saver coral, magenta, primary, and cherry cola) and hoped that from those four, I could come up with some order of three that would please me.

After second guessing the eighth round more times than I care to considered, I finally finished it. I proceeded with both trepidation and hope to the ninth round. When I finally finished the ninth round, I was hopeful, but not sure which color to go with: cherry cola or primary.

I love Red Heart Super Saver cherry cola, but I had a suspicion that primary might be just what was needed, so I decided to try it first, and was delighted with the result.

Here is the second ten-round square oriented one way:

here it is, turned 45┬║ and appearing as it will when it becomes part of the bag:

and here it is with the other ten-round square that I made for this project:

Now that the two centerpiece squares are done, all that is left for me to do is to find the perfect combinations of colors for the remaining sixteen five-round squares.
