Today is the last day of the 100 day project and I can't say enough good things about the experience this year. If you don't know it, the premise of this project is the question "What could you do with 100 days of making?" The possibilities are truly endless! I focused on crochet this year, in spite of the fact that it has never been my go-to project of choice. Through our house move this spring, various house guests and my recent push to prepare for my first pop-up shop last week, I didn't always have as much time as I wanted to dedicate to the project. But I found that I definitely can make time to do something fun and creative every day, which was the most valuable lesson for me.
The highlights of the project for me were learning to read crochet patterns, making an amigurumi stuffed toy and coming very close to finishing my granny square blanket that I started when I lived in the Japanese inaka NINE YEARS AGO. My ravelry notes on the project from when I first started ("This is my first crochet project. It's fun!") make me laugh--it is fun! I look forward to actually finishing it one day in the very near future.
Thanks to everyone who has followed along. I'll still document my crochet and other colorful creations on instagram, so stay tuned!
