Spring is always the busiest part of the year for me.
Gone are the cold (but luxurious) ice and snow days of winter that bring the world grinding to a halt and leave me with lots to time to crochet, and in their stead are warmer, longer days that go by so fast the world seems a blur.
Today, when time was not rushing by, I did manage to get in some crochet time.
I spent much of yesterday reworking some of the four-round squares for my latest granny square bag project and crocheting the first round of the two-round granny squares that will form the handle/edging.
Today, I set the two-round grannies-to-be aside and focused my attention on finishing the second eight-round square and getting more of the four-round granny squares done. Then, when mid-afternoon arrived, I got my son from school and we went out on some unavoidable errands, and I made use of the fact I was already out and stopped by the fabric store nearest my house and selected these two solids for the lining of my current project:
Here is how the fabric looked with one of the squares:
and here is how it looked with the other:
With time speeding past, the thrill of running afternoon errands and making our way home through rush hour traffic was a distant memory, and I returned to work on the four-round squares, and then, shortly before taking my dog for his last walk of the day, I got these photos of the squares I have finished so far:
I know that soon the languid days of summer will be here, and I will spend any number of hours out on my back deck contemplating life and crochet, but until then, I will do my best to enjoy life at the speed of spring.
