I get to work a few minutes early every day - this is what I do.
The granny square sitting there is no more - I've taken it apart because I realized that I've already got a large granny square that I've been working on. I'm going to use it to make a bag. I think. This is the blog I'm looking at:
Crocheted 11 multi-colored hexagons into a scarf. I know, I know - it's too warm for a scarf. I'll have to wait at least 6 months before I can wear it. I'll hang it in my craft room so I can look at it every once in a while 'till then. :)
A while back I decorated this notebook I bought from the Dollar Tree and ever since it's just sat doing nothing. I'm thinking of using it as a crochet notebook - but what would I put in it? Can you give me any ideas? Please? :)
I belong to a crochet group and Vivian (one of the members) and I just recently swapped a small baggie of buttons for this 99 grannies book. She got the buttons - I got the book. I am soooo happy. I thoroughly enjoyed looking through this book last night and dreaming about all the different squares with what colors I can crochet. Of course, we all know it doesn't quite work that way. In reality I'll probably only crochet a few of them. I can dream though. :)

Here's a picture of my progress on the circle squares afghan I'm working on. So colorful - I love it. It's starting to get a little tricky to handle when crocheting on a new square - and it's verrrrry warm. :)
You will notice that there are no 'holes' in the corners - that seemed to bother a few viewers with my previous afghans. It really doesn't bother me - I think the holes give the afghan a lacey look. But then again - the 'solid' corners look very nice too.
I've started working on yet another project. While cleaning my craft room (yes, I'm still doing that), I came across 2 skeins of Red Heart Stripes in "denim stripe". Cool looking yarn and I wanted to crochet with it but what do I crochet? A scarf? No, too warm now. A purse? No, not enough yarn. What then? Well - how about a mesh grocery bag? OK - perfect. I need a few more. (I have about 5 pink ones I keep in my car for when I shop at the Bottom Dollar grocery store.) You have to pay 5 cents for each bag there, but pretty soon all the stores around here are going to be charging 5 cents a bag. I am using this pattern:
