I find travel alternately exhilarating and exhausting, and this past week, I got to experience both ends of that spectrum. Yesterday, in particular, I rode an assortment of conveyances used for travel including the aforementioned, planes, trains, automobiles, and buses, all in addition to the ever popular “walking.”
I like seeing things I haven’t seen before which often leads to learning things I would not have otherwise learned, and I am always looking for ways to incorporate the ideas I run across into my crochet.
This week, however, I had little opportunity to incorporate ideas into my work as the amount of travel I was doing made it difficult to to much more than keep track of the pieces I had brought with me, and today, when I finally settled in for a bit, I had some missing squares to reckon with.
When I went to put together the three-by-four array I have been working on for almost a week now:
I found I was six squares shy of the original array:
and the four-by-four array of assorted granny squares that I had unearthed in one of the boxes that housed remnants of the yarn slug:
was missing three of it’s array:
So what is a crocheter to do?
In my case she needed to unpack and then unpack some more, but eventually, I not only found the three future five-inch crochet squares missing from the larger array:
I also found the six crochet remnants missing from the twelve crochet square array:
Now that I am settled (for the moment), I am going to use this time of relative stillness and work on finishing these crochet remnants, one stitch at a time.
