As my regular readers know, the ball park is one of my favorite places to crochet, and this past Sunday, when I was at a game cheering on the Durham Bulls, I had occasion to encounter a gentleman who is clearly not one of my regular readers.
I was sitting in my usual seat putting the finishing touches on Sunday night’s blog post when a man I had never met briefly stopped to tell me I shouldn’t be working while I was at the ball park.
I would have given him a piece of my mind but two things stopped me. One, I had a blog post to write, and two, as much as he clearly could have used a piece of my mind, it wasn’t as clear to me that he would put it to good use, so other than a friendly glare, I ignored him and went on with my work.
And soon, the blog post was done, I put my computer away, and I got out what were, at that moment, my front burner crochet remnants being rehabbed into crochet squares. Here they are in all of their “ends woven in, ready for adventure glory”
and in the bottom of the ninth inning, which the Bulls went into down two runs, this happened:

Unfortunately the gentleman who had been so generous with his unsolicited advice about not doing work at the ball park — he missed the big win because he gave up on the Bulls and left before the game was over.
With both the weekend and a third baseball game behind me, I was faced with the reality of beginning to sort through the things that had been in our now former storage unit, and while I was sorting through the myriad bins, I found nine more remnants to be rehabbed:
I started by weaving in the ends:
Then, with the aid of a ruler, I identified three five-inch crochet squares among the remnants:
From there I managed to finish three more before it was time to start work on tonight’s blog post:
I appreciate the time that all my readers give me when they read my blog posts, and my motto is this: neither snow nor rain nor heat nor baseball games nor strangers who dare to interrupt will stop me from completing my blog post.
