Today was an absolutely beautiful day, with clear, crisp air, and plenty of sunshine, and when the day was done, I found I had lived it one square at a time.
The first order of business for me was to get to the post office to send some of the items I have completed this month. The birthday rug went to my oldest, the fat bag went to the wife of a friend, and the many African Flower hexagons went to Kansas, Florida, Texas, Nebraska, and California.
Additionally, I found a hat that had been completed in late August, and two sets of really cute buttons that also needed to be sent out.
I packed as much of it as I could at home, then headed to the post office, packing tape, scissors, and Sharpie pens in hand, so that I could get two medium flat rate boxes I needed for some of the things I was sending out.
After the boxes were sent, my youngest son and I went out for a celebratory lunch, after which, we returned home, and I resumed work on my unfinished projects.
I began my day in crochet with a bit of tidying up.
Having found a half-dozen scraps tangled in the yarn I am using for my go-go granny dress, I decided that I would crochet it into my great-granny square:
While doing so created another dozen ends to be woven in on this project, it also meant that the yarn scraps I used can no longer get tangled in the yarn I need for the go-go granny.
But soon, I felt the need to turn my attention to the project that I now think of as “The Dress.”
My youngest son’s cat and I do not agree on much, but we do agree that this dress is a must have; the difficulty comes in that each of us thinks that it is our sole property. I don’t think it belongs to the cat, and she doesn’t thing it belongs to me. We are each convinced that the other is trespassing. I am certain I am right, but possession, it is said, is nine-tenths of the law, and my cat clearly had me beat today on the matter of possession:
In between hollow attempts to keep the cat away from my work, and doing a few non-crochet things in preparation for Thanksgiving Day, I did at least manage to add these four squares to those I had already made, and each of these squares had been worked one square at a time in an effort to not lose track of where I was.
Tomorrow is a new day, albeit a busy one with much of the time already spoken for, but I am betting I can get at least one more square completed.
