The week in review: February 17 through February 21, 2013

Buoyed by yesterday’s progress, and cognizant of the fact that there are just 26 hexagons between me and being able to work on the border of this project, the first thing I did today, after I got my son off to school was to take an inventory of what I had already done so that I would know what I needed to do.

It turned out I had two completed turtles, two frogs (one completed, one not), one dog, one lion:

a menagerie of crochet hexagons for a crochet blanket
A menagerie of crochet hexagons to be

and two bear ears:

two crochet ears for a crochet bear
Two ears for a crochet bear to-be

I started by working on the four remaining animals needed including two pigs:

the center of two crochet pig crochet hexagons
Two future crochet pigs

one bear (to go with the two bear ears):

A crochet bear face for a crochet hexagon
One crochet bear to-be

and one bird:

a crochet circle for a blue bird crochet hexagon
A future crochet bird

Having gotten at least a start on all of the animal hexagons I would need, I turned my attention to the colorful cluster hexagons, and completed 9 of the sixteen needed to complete the project:

crochet flower hexagons for a crochet blanket
Nine crochet hexagons, all in a row

While I don’t know that I will get this done by Monday, I am confident I will have it done before March 1 rolls around.

Now for the week in review!
