I came so close to finishing one of the two great granny square blankets, I am working on, that I could almost taste it. But when the day was done, I still had one round to go.
Nevertheless, I was pleased with my progress.
On Friday, I had added two more rounds. The twenty-ninth round was a shade of green that reminds me of summer and added what I think of as “depth” to the overall effect:
From there, I went slightly outside my color comfort zone and paired the green of the twenty-ninth round with a cherry red for the thirtieth, which gave it a hint of movement:
With the addition of the red, I was done for the day.
Saturday brought me to the thirty-first round. After trying a bold pink, I ended up going with a delft blue that, to my mind, really made the red standout even better:
Then, because I was not about to give up on the pink, I went with a round a grenadine, a pink from Red Heart Super Saver line that has hint of neon, as well as a suggestion of blue:
I was done crocheting for the day, but I wanted to see how the whole thing was coming together, so I folded the corners in to get a look at how the colors were coming together:
Satisfied with where I had come from with my color travels, on Sunday, I forged ahead with an orchid color, that–to my mind–set off the pink perfectly:
Then I added a round of spring green:
and managed to fit in one of a bright yellow:
I had come so close to finishing, but even though there was a bit of daylight left, I had other things I needed to do with it.
So, when the sun rises on the new day, I will choose the exact right color for the last round, and move forward, one stitch at at time.
