Crochet I(n)R(eal)L(ife)

In real life, this is how far I got with my state fair project today:

A more detailed view looks like this:

Seams were ¬†joined, ends were woven in and trimmed, photos were taken, but still….

In my fantasy crochet life, I finished row seven on Tuesday; however, reality intruded on my fantasy, andI did not get row seven assembled and attached until today — five days later. While my fantasy crochet life is a testament to the depth and breadth of my imagination, it does not a finished project make, and now that this is happened, I don’t know how I will make up the five days that just whizzed past me.

Viewing this photo of my project testing the waters as a car cozy, I consider checking the state fair premium book to see if there is a category such as “crochet blankets that cover a small part of your car”:

it is clear that this project, like me, seems to have aspirations that exceed its boundaries:

Now that row seven is finished it is time to once again take the long view and look toward tackling row eight.
