I have finally caught up! Everything to date (through today) has been crocheted! As you can see, no ends have been dealt with (well, some have) and I still haven't started putting my blanket together, but progress has been made there as well!
I did all the math, many many times to figure out how I wanted to put my blanket together, and tested out Lucy's joining for Granny Squares. Still not 110% on my joining decision, and wanted to just look things over one more time in the light of day (AKA: Saturday).
Here's what I crocheted for week 6:
2/3: NOT FEELING WELL - woke up last Monday morning not feeling well at all. Hopeful that I'm not getting sick and/or catching whatever it is going around my office.
2/4: FREEZING / THINKING OF GRANNIE - the sunrise on my drive to work Tuesday morning made me feel as though Grannie was looking down on me
It was, again, freezing cold but I immediately thought of my colors for freezing and thinking of Grannie, and they really match this sunrise perfectly.
2/5: SNOWY DAY / EXCITED - more snow in WNY and some exciting possibilities arose at work.
2/6: EXCITED - Wednesday's excitement continued into Thursday with good meetings at work, in additional to a few meetings I had outside of the office.
2/7: SICK - ugh....drove home Thursday night with a migraine, woke up with it on Friday morning. Started to cough while getting ready for work, and definitely had a nasty sore throat. Everything went downhill throughout the day on Friday, but I made it through my day in the office, came home and just C.R.A.S.H.E.D. sore throat, fever, body aches, and cough
*BONUS HEX* refused to miss the Opening Ceremonies for the Winter Olympics, even if I did have a flu. I had to make a TEAM USA hex for the day as well!
2/8: TIRED / SICK - didn't feel as terrible Saturday as I did on Friday, I even made it to my 10 a.m. nail appointment. Came home and took a 4 hour nap, slept through most of the Olympic events that night, and still slept a solid 8 hours. I clearly needed all that rest to get over whatever it is/was infecting my system.
2/9: FEELING CRAFTY / SICK - woke yesterday feeling around 75%. Spent most of my day crocheting and watching Dawson's Creek on Netflix. Slowly getting better (even if my voice isn't fully back)
2/10: PRODUCTIVE - "technically" this hex belongs on next week's post. But it was already in my picture before I realized this. So, you're getting it tonight. You may see it again next week, if I remember. We'll call today's productivity a variation on overachieving!
Speaking of today's productivity, I've gotta show off my favorite hex to date:
TOO CUTE, right?? Jonathan asked me if the owl was because I was feeling crafty. I told him it was because I bought an Owl [decoration] that day! I'm just realizing now that the owl was supposed to be happy / feeling crafty, but that I crocheted it happy / thinking of Grannie. Maybe she wanted to be part of today's crocheting - or she was a part of my crafty shopping trip with Mom back on January 18th.
