The past couple of days, after I got a handle on the crochet motif I would be using for my future state fair entry, I got busy making more squares for my future crochet swag bag.
While a crochet bag might not take as much time as a crochet throw, it is still easy to lose your way if you don’t stay focused, so when I wasn’t pouring over potential granny square arrangements to get ideas about how I will piece together the finished squares, I was working on finishing squares, which left me with plenty to do.
After a brief foray into the garage, I found additional yarn scraps that added to the rainbow of colors I could work with, and I continued moving forward.
Then, as the afternoon drew to a close, I had–in addition to the two squares I finished as of Sunday’s blog post–four more flamboyant squares finished and almost ready for adventure:
I didn’t take time to weave in any more ends than were absolutely necessary to finish the square because I don’t need natural light to weave in ends, I just need good enough light, so I used the daylight I had to work on making sure that I have a somewhat coherent–albeit not completely realized–color vision for the final product.
In addition to these four squares, I also got the first two rounds of three future flamboyant squares done:
along with these two one-round starter circles that will lead to greater, more flamboyant things:
In the meantime, I am looking over the finished squares to figure out what the finished bag will need more of:
As for New Mexico, I love the light, and while I am not quite adjusted to the new state fair schedule, I hope to be better settled in by next year, and I will move forward, one stitch at a time.
