I almost finish Square 56

As May slid into June, and the activities of the end-of-the-school-year collided with the activities of the-beginning-of-summer, some things got lost in the shuffle, and one of them was the 101 Crochet Squares crochet-a-long I am a part of.

I had, of recent months, managed to not fall any further behind, and some weeks, I even made forward progress, but with the surfeit of activities clamoring for my time and attention, the crochet-a-long got lost in the shuffle; however, today, after endless errands and several hours spent tyring to get caught up on a few things around the house, shortly before six, I got the chance to sit down and attempt to remedy the situation.

After looking over the options available to me, I chose Square 56. Composed of just six rounds, I decided to work it in one color as shown in the example thinking that I just might get the square done before sunset if there were only two ends to weave in.

I worked the first round:

Round 1 of crochet square 56

then the second:

Round 2 of crochet square 56

and third:

Round 3 of crochet square 56

and fourth:

Round 4 of crochet square 56

I raced through the fifth round with the hope that I would be able to finish the square before sunset:

Round 5 of crochet square 56

but it didn’t work out like that.

Instead, I had to set the square aside and run one last errand before taking my dog, Clooney, on his last walk of the day.

But there is tomorrow, and maybe, just maybe, I will get to put this motif to bed before the next sunset.
