I always have some WIP's, and always some of them are blankets. I crochet blankets, I knit blankets. Most of the time they are becoming quite big. But on the moment it is to hot for a blanket on my lap, so I'm crocheting grannies. And because of the weather I'm using cotton. I like to work with wool, but now it's to warm. And than I thought about what to do with it, and voila, it will become a bag. My choice of colours was inspired by the blouse I was wearing, and by the beautiful weather now. I surely love how the colours work together.
Today I was busy crocheting all the grannies together. It amazed me how manygrannies I needed. Ofcourse I knew it, (I did the math) but seeeing it grow was different. I love how they all look together.
I hope I will be able to finish the bag tomorrow. And I will look in my stash for a matching fabric to line it with. It looks very summery, I think. Most of the cotton I use is Catania, I like it that this not to thick, and I love the feeling of this. Sometimes I use Rico, or Phildar, but I prefer Catania. I used to use Durable 8, but I can't find this anymore.
