9 crafting days until Christmas: a pictorial essay

I began the day with one goal: to finish the soccer ball.

As it happens, this was not a realistic of goal, but despite the fact the ball is not finished, I did make substantial progress.

While it was, for the most part, an errand-free day, it was not a day free of interruptions; however, by nine o’clock this morning, I had finished weaving in the ends of the fourth round to the ten as-yet-to-be-completed African flower hexagons:

Ten crochet hexgons with the first four rounds completed

About an hour later, I had attached a pentagon to a ring of five hexagons I had joined yesterday, and then joined the newly completed panel to one that was already finished:

Two panels of the crochet soccer ball to-be completed and joined

Because I needed to eat lunch and attend to some household matters, I didn’t take another picture until just after one o’clock, at which point I had completed the fifth round on five more hexagons:

Two panels completed and the components of the third

By three o’clock, I had made additional progress:

crochet soccer ball, crochetbug, crochet hexagons, crochet pentagons, African flower hexagon, crochet flower,
Three panels and three crochet hexagons

By four o’clock the ball had really begun to take shape, but I needed to get ready to attend one of our Christmas traditions, a musical production of Dickens’ A Christmas Carol:

The crochet soccer ball begins to take shape

I think that what I’d really like for Christmas this year is some more time.
