Crocheting the day away

Yesterday’s weather was too good to be true, and today was more of the same.

I took advantage of the sunshine and 72º F temperature and spent nearly all of the daylight hours sitting on the deck working on my current crochet projects.

First up was the African flower meditation.

I had worked the 26th hexagon the day before when the light was quickly fading. I had finished the first four rounds and needed to add a fifth:

The first four rounds of the 26th African flower hexagon

but as I looked at it in the light of a new day and tried unsuccessfully to place it within the meditation itself, I decided the most expedient thing to do was remove the fourth round and replace it with some other color, which I did, and I soon was able to settle on a fifth round color and a final placement within the overall meditation:

The 26th hexagon reworked a bit and joined to the meditation

With yesterday’s hexagon in place, I decided to plow ahead with today’s hexagon and after a brief hesitation here and there and with just a little bit of frogging, I got it done:

The 27th crochet hexagon

and then joined it to its hexagon compatriots:

With my African flower hexagon meditation done for the day, I turned my attention to the Fantascot I started work on yesterday.

Yesterday I finished making the three dot motifs, and today I finished making the pieces necessary for the three flower squares:

crochetbug, crochet squares, crochet flowers, crochet appliqué, appliqué crochet, crochet ascot
Three crochet flower squares to-be

and got a start on the three granny squares:

A trio of three-round granny squares with the first two round completed

Once the shade of the late afternoon covered the deck I found it too chilly to sit outside and ply my craft, but when the cold of January descends, and I think that warm days might never come again, I will be able to look at hexagons 26 and 27 of my meditation, and remember the warmth of a late autumn day.
