I finish four more crochet panels and discover an exquisite crochet rose

Autumn is here. The leaves have started to turn, and with each passing day, summer is becoming an increasingly distant memory, and even as I do my best to stay focused on my third Day of the Dead yarn bomb, I am sometimes distracted, and today, one of those distractions was an exquisite crochet rose I hope to incorporate as a decorative element into the final display of the yarn bombs.

When I hit the “Publish” button on my blog post last Thursday, it dawned on me that I didn’t have as much time left to finish the third yarn bomb as I thought I did, and I decided that if I didn’t make enough progress I would have to put it to bed and bring it out next year.

So with that in mind, I did a better job keeping focused on the task at hand: finishing as much of the yarn bomb as I possible could, and not only did I finish the three panels that formed a third of this nine-patch:

Nine of the sixteen crochet panels

I managed to move on further finishing the tenth complete square, and getting one-third of the way through an eleventh crochet square:

Ten and one-third crochet panels of sixteen needed for a crochet yarn bomb
Five and two-thirds crochet panels of a sixteen panel yarn bomb

Once I was confident that I would make it to the finish, I started looking for the “perfect” crochet rose.

In the interest of not spending any time designing a flower when I need to crochet yarn bomb panels, I managed to find a flower that is basically a hyperbolic curlicue on its side:

I worked it according to the directions, and while, it is a little small, the perfection of it is undeniable. It is an exquisite crochet rose, and I think if I add another ten to twelve changes to the original foundation, it will be even more perfect.

In the meantime, I will continue forward, one stitch at a time.
