I didn’t have a very splashy crochet day, but it was one in which I moved measurably and inexorably forward. Joining one piece and then another I added to my “ta-done” pile in small, imperceptible ways, a sort of crochet accretion.

After having spent much of yesterday “organizing” (as it were) the squares that needed to be joined, today, I began my efforts in a downstairs workspace in my home which offered three advantages: the light was good, it wasn’t too cold, and it was near the coffee.

Fueled by caffeine and a slight amount of panic, I joined the squares of the two rows I had laid out yesterday:

I finish joining two more rows of 1 x 1 Bauhaus crochet blocks

Then I spent a few minutes fooling around with all four of the strips and made them into what I think of as colorful “crochet cinnamon rolls” shown here in a view from the top:

and here, in their natural habitat:

Then I set out with my son to his late afternoon orthodontist appointment, and while I waited for him, I made twelve of the 112 1 x 2 Bauhaus blocks that are needed for the twenty-eight Bauhaus quilt block iv motifs:

All in all, it was an excellent day, and I am hoping this exceptionally good crochet mojo lasts until the final end is woven in.
