Today was Mother’s Day, and I spent most of it working on the Better Homes and Gardens Granny Square Sampler.
Because the time to finish this project seems to be slipping through my fingers, I looked to eliminate those things which could be eliminated in order to afford me more time to work onit.
As such, I took fewer photos thinking that reduced number of interruptions would result in greater efficiency. I’m not really sure that it worked that way, but I did finish 2 of the remaining 7 squares and made substantial progress on a third.
The square on which I made substantial progress is where I started my crochet day. Using Red Heart Super Saver medium purple, lavender, and dark orchid, I made the circular center of Square E-1:
In the above image, all of the colors are a bluer than they appear in life, and I was not able to get an accurate photo of the depth of the color of the last round, but the photo is true to the sentiment of what I was trying to achieve.
After finishing “Square” A-6 which is not, in fact, a square, but rather two five-round granny squares joined together, I started work on Square B-3, which is seen here with the first six of nine rounds completed:
I continued my work, but was at times plagued with color indecision which was not helped by today’s overcast skies and drizzling rain which forced me to work with indoor light, but despite the multiple hesitations, I did continue to move forward on this project:
Tomorrow will be another gray day, and I will continue to do what I can to brighten it up through the magic of crochet.
