Yesterday, I spent most of my time supervising the unpacking of our final container of stuff. Other than weaving in the ends from the last round of rehab, I didn’t get much done, so today I decided to step up my game and do some coffee shop crochet.
When I go to the coffee shop, I have no other claims on my time. I am there to drink coffee and get done whatever work I have brought with me that needs doing. There is no dog to walk (or if there is, it’s not mine), no dishes to wash, no laundry taunting me, and there is (for all practical purposes) an endless supply of coffee.
What more could a crocheter want?
In my case, some squares to rehab and the tools with which to do it. After weaving in the ends from the previous round of rehab, I had six squares left to finish, so that is what I brought with me to the coffee shop:
As can be seen in the above photo there were a dozen ends to weave in and three more rounds of crochet to be done. So I did all of that, and I wove in the new ends created by the final rounds of crocheted needed to finish the three remaining squares:
With all of that now in the rearview mirror of my crochet life, I took a group photo of the thirteen remnants now that they are done because I love to see before:
and after photos:
Seeing them helps me see that I actually have made progress, and because I have been sending these squares off as I get them done, there will be no final photo with all one thousand squares.
With the thirteen remnants rehabbed, I had to dig around in various bags, but eventually, I came up with these nine remnants:
I now have fewer than 100 squares to rehab before I reach my goal, and for this last effort, I will move forward as I have through the entire journey: one stitch at a time.
