The much anticipated break in the weather arrived today, and while the temperature was already 83ºF when I walked my dog, Clooney, this morning, the day’s high temperature did not reach triple digits, and as a result of this respite, I was able to continue the joining and assemble forty-nine of the crochet cookies.
By dinner, there was much thunder and the clouds had begun to gather:
But earlier in the day, after the dog was walked and all necessary chores attended to, I picked up where I left off with the cookieghan and began the work of joining row three.
While the joining did not go as quickly as I might have wanted (does it ever?), it did go more quickly than it had the two previous days, and in what could only be described as crochet joining warp speed, I finished row three and made substantial progress on row four and I had these forty-nine cookies to show for it:
Tomorrow we are due for rain most of the day which is, at it happens, the perfect sort of weather for weaving in ends, and I and the cookieghan will be ready.
