While I made excellent progress on the Weekend Granny Throw today, I did not manage to finish it.
Having said that, under the right circumstances, this is definitely a weekend project.
When I left my gentle reader, I had finished the first nine rows of the project:
When I picked up the project today and tried to match where I was with the project to the directions, I discovered that I had erred in making the 9th round with the tea leaf. The ninth round should have been a single round of buff rather than the third round of tea leaf, so before I could start the business of doing, I first needed to complete some undoing.
With ninth round done in tea leaf frogged (unraveled), I then proceeded and was more careful to double check what color I should be using and for how many rounds. By the time I had finished lunch, I had not only taken the one round out, but I had replaced it with the correct color and added three more rounds, bringing the total of rounds completed to an even dozen:
The spectacular weather we had today was not just good for crocheting, it was good for drying laundry as well, so after a brief interruption to attend to some laundry chores, I once again began work on weekend throw, and in short order, I had completed four more rounds:
By this time, I needed to consider what I would make for dinner, and after preparing some winter squash for baking, I returned to my outdoor office and finished three more rounds before I had to set my crochet aside:
Tomorrow’s weather is supposed to be at least as spectacular as today’s, and with no errands pressing to be done (and at least one load of laundry out of the way), I am hoping that I finish this project, and can give you my insights on how you can get this project done in just one weekend.
