And that’s where my Boardwalk Bag is so far!
This is the color combination I finally settled on for the Moogly Mini Crochet-Along project. I like how it’s coming along so far, but I’m not yet convinced I don’t need to try out one of the other combinations I’d considered, too. Once I finish this one, I’ll probably make a second bag either for myself or for my mom.
The sharp-eyed among you will notice that I’ve departed pretty significantly from the pattern already. I’ve been continuing in one direction instead of turning after each round. I decided since I’m following a specific striping plan (more on that in a minute) with multiple yarns instead of the continuous multicolored yarn the pattern calls for, it would work better to have uniformly oriented stitches.
Of course, there is always a technical downside to making stripes. I’m not looking forward to this little chore. That’s a whole lotta ends to weave.
It took me forever to work out which kind of stripes to make. In my typical overthinking, compulsive fashion, I resorted to a grid via spreadsheet. I’m not kidding. Here’s the beast.
In other news, I can’t tell you how pleased this makes me: Shiny new new elements and drip pans on my stove!
I’d broken one element about a month ago, then another family member who shall remain nameless accidentally melted a Tupperware into another one last week. It really complicated my dinner-making duties to have only two functioning elements (one of which was a small one, useless for spaghetti pots and skillets). And now my cooking life is back to normal. Ahh…it’s the little things!
