I am not what I think of “nearly finished” with my journey of a thousand crochet squares, but I am finally at the point where I can see the light at the end of the crochet tunnel.
It is a little, itty bitty, pinprick of light that is almost not visible, but now, with each square I finish, I will get closer to that light, and the little tiny pinprick will become a full sized dot, and that dot will grow into a circle, and that circle will grow into an even larger circle, and one day it will be big enough for me to walk right out into a sunlit landscape with no shadows.
But today is not that day.
Instead, I picked up where I left off on Sunday and built on the work I had already started with weaving in and trimming the ends of the sixteen crochet remnants that are the current focus of my attention. Five of the remnants in transition had eight ends each to be woven in, so it wasn’t exactly “quick work,” but eventually it was all done:
With the remnants ready for the next round of rehab, I got busy, and because several of the rehabs were going through a similar process, it went faster because I was not reinventing the crochet wheel in order to make progress, and on this round of rehab, I got very close to finishing all sixteen squares:
But very close to a finished square does not a finished square make, so I resumed my work and put the finishing touches on the last five squares, and soon, all sixteen remnants were rehabbed:
Which meant I only had one thing left to do — find more crochet remnants, which I did.
I am getting to the point that when I go in search of “the next” batch of remnants, I have to dig a little deeper and sort through a few more bins. But with the end of this journey now in sight, I am going to keep moving forward, one stitch at a time, until I finally step out of this crochet tunnel and into the light.
