I have, of late, tried to keep my focus on the journey to a thousand rehabbed crochet squares, but it is not the only project on my “to do right now” list, a fact that came into sharp focus yesterday as I prepared to take my mother to an appointment.
I needed enough to do that I could stay busy the entire time, but it had to fit in the bag I was carrying, so as I sorted through my choices, I eventually decided on juggling crochet projects that were the most portable.
To that end, I took the nine crochet remnants I had most recently selected, and while I waited, I frogged where needed, then wove in and trimmed all of the ends. By the time I was done, the remnants were ready for rehab.
But I had, for the most part, left my yarn at home, which for me means I only brought the five colors I needed to finish the second round of the now long forgotten boho granny squares that I need to make so I can have a new crochet purse. Using my 4.0 mm hook, I got to work, and once I had finished crocheting the missing second rounds, I was back to weaving in and trimming ends:
That kept me busy while I was on the road. Once I was back home I decided to organize a crochet bin I have been using to house what I think of as my “traveling” yarn stash, and when I was done, I had not only found two renegade remnants that belong to two “nearly but not quite completed” nine patch rehab efforts:
I had also identified a substantial collection of crochet remnants to rehab:
As well as three small magic balls made from the many yarn scraps my work has been generating:
With a bit of daylight left before I needed to walk my dog, I wound all three balls of yarn into one (pictured here to the right of my ever growing main magic yarn ball):
and then I wound those into the bigger ball of yarn which left me with this:
With all of the tidying and juggling crochet projects, I almost (but not quite) forgot to get a photo of the nine new crochet squares for Project Amigo:
I look forward to starting all over again tomorrow, moving forward one stitch at a time.
