I had hoped to tick off two of the wips on my list, and if I get a move on, I may still have time this evening to achieve this goal. In the meantime, I have completed one of the projects I was working on. It's another crochet bag (you can see the one I made last year, here).
This one, as you can see is delightfully colourful.
I used the same granny square pattern as last time, the Rosie Posie Grannie Square by Sandra Paul. It really is a great pattern and makes a lovely dense square.
I've used a canvas bag for the lining and the handles this time have been recycled from an old bag that had started to look shabby in the body.
I love it. You can see details of the project and the pattern I used over on my Ravelry page, here.
And of course, the bag has contributed to my stash busting endeavours. I used a total of 267g of Stylecraft Special DK for this project. I've got a special notebook to record how I'm using up the stash and I'm hoping for even bigger reductions in March.
I'm linking this project to Linda's Stash Busting party, which is providing a wonderful incentive to get things finished. Bring on the next wip!
