Y’all, I leave tomorrow! As in 24 hours until the beach. Last night Hubs and I had a going away get together at our favorite bar (which just so happens to be the same bar we met in) and so many of our friends and family went out of their way to show up to give us their love and support. It was emotional and a blast… and my head only hurts a little today, so I must have done something right haha
That said, between all of the packing my crochet breaks really turned into a lifesaving device PLUS I made a new bag! It’s funny how and when inspiration hits us (take me, typing this… on my phone… in bed). I was packing all of my yarn and found a work in progress that I didn’t start in the basket of yarn my dad gave me from storage a couple years back. It looked like two squares attached by two straps, but not quite big enough to use for anything. I studied the granny squares it was made up of, added a few more, added a little embellishment, and it was probably the best little purse I’ve made yet! I can’t believe how handy it is that I just started figuring out granny squares… what last week?
So! Next week I’m going to make a couple more from scratch and write the pattern.
Actually it fits my hook case perfectly, I’m thinking this is my new project bag!
The next time I post, I’ll have sand between my toes 🙂
