Carpe diem (before it seizes you!)

I have had three days of what, in my life, is uninterrupted time to work.

There have been lessons to be gotten to, laundry to be washed, exercise to be done, and meals to be prepared, but for the most part, I have been able to focus my energy on my 2010 North Carolina State Fair project.

As a result of the opportunity to make this concentrated effort, in the last 48 hours I have managed to add two rows to the project. If I maintain my focus, and, as a result, retain the crochet mojo that I currently have through tomorrow, I have a good chance to add yet another row, and end the month of August with nine of 31 rows completed.

This will be one row shy of my fantasy goal for August, but it does put me within reach of finishing the project in time for the state fair.

Today, I put the finishing touches on the row most recently added while my son was at choir practice.

  1. Go CrochetBug Go~! You can do it! I quit working on a crochet hat that was supposed to take 2 hours. I can’t for the life of me work with homespun and a crochet hook. Too squiggly and confusing. Will start hat with something I can see and count stitches tomorrow.

    1. Thanks so much for the encouragement! As quickly as August disappeared, I know that September won’t last any longer.
