Today was the perfect day to stay at home and crochet.
The skies were overcast, the weather was uncertain, and I have plenty of projects that need my attention if I am going to get them done before my quest for glory when the 2011 North Carolina State Fair crochet season begins in early July.
With a fresh pot of coffee and the entire day ahead of me, I decided to pick up where I had left off and concentrate my crochet efforts toward the goal of finishing the seven rainbow granny squares for the groovyghan that I am working on.
I resolved not to take any breaks until I finished the sixth round of all seven of the squares. Stitch by stitch and end by end I worked until I had reached my goal, taking a photo after I completed each round:
With the sixth round of all seven squares done, I ate a quick lunch and renewed my efforts to finish the squares while there was still daylight:
Buoyed that I had that I had completed the groovyghan granny squares, I then turned my attention to the 101 Crochet Squares crochet-a-long of which I am a part.
Armed with my collection of Etimo hooks, my stash of Red Heart Super Saver yarn, and my Moleskine notebook calendar for March where I have a list of all of the squares I have completed and have yet to complete, I reviewed the choices, got out my 5.0 mm hook, and set to work on Square 48. In what seemed like no time, I had it done:
Not all crochet days result in the kind of progress I made today, but I am grateful for each one, and keep working my craft, one stitch at a time.
