In which I get very serious about granny squares

The days have, to my mind, grown alarmingly short.

Each morning the sun rises later and each evening it sets earlier leaving me with much less of the precious daylight I prefer for making color decisions, so with that in mind, I have spent the last two days feverishly working on the solid color granny squares I will need to fill in the many spaces of my 2015 North Carolina State Fair project.

My goal is to have bank of granny squares from which to choose so that I can lay out the order of the squares in the various rows by the light of day, and, if need be, assemble them by artificial light in the evening.

With that in mind, when I was not doing non-crochet things that absolutely, positively had to be done despite the fact that it is State Fair season, I was crocheting granny squares, one after another and taking an occasional break to weave in ends.

Over the past forty-eight hours I managed to crochet three four-round squares:

Three four-round granny squares

eight three-round squares:

twelve two-round squares:

Twelve two-round granny squares

and twenty-five one-round squares:

Twenty-five one-round granny squares

I still have miles of yarn to crochet before this project is done, but if I can manage a few more days like the past two, I will feel much more confident that this project will be finished in time for the October 12 deadline.
