As April draws to a close, I am trying to finish up a few projects so that I can better focus my efforts on one in particular that I am anxious to begin work on.
Having cleaned up my kitchen yesterday morning, today I directed that energy toward my crochet empire.
Happy with the way my first pet mat turned out (where I used a 10.0mm hook to crochet with a strand of navy Red Heart Super Saver yarn paired with a strand of yarn created from scraps), I got to work making another ball of yarn from the scraps that had collected from several recent projects.
In short order, I tied together all of the scraps that had collected in my purse and the table next to a chair where I do a lot of my crochet:
With my purse and the area surrounding my work area cleared of all the small scraps of yarn that had accumulated, I then turned my attention to what is the twelfth in a series of stash bags I have made using this pattern. I had begun work on this stash bag in the past week, and this morning, I completed the base of the bag:
With stash bag 12 well under way, I then made an effort to make use of the lengthier yarn scraps that have been accumulating in a plastic bag by using them for my great-granny square which has, of late, languished in a cubby in my crochet empire.
Here is how the square looked after a couple of hours of dedicated effort:
This great-granny square is a record, in scraps of yarn, of the projects I have worked on, and when it is done, it will be a reflection of who and what I am.

and what you are is surely colorful and well executed!!!!!! BTW do you have a pattern from Jean L’s book I think its square 80 or 81? I can’t find a copy of it anywhere….
I love the great granny square. It is always a pleasure to see.
The great-granny square looks so colorful. I think like you do when I crochet a scrappy round ripple – I can remember alot of my past projects. I think to myself – I made such & such with this yarn – such & such with that yarn – and so on. It’s nice. 🙂
Why does the stash bag have a blue seam along the base?
That is a yarn scrap I use to keep track of the rounds.
