The road to a thousand rehabbed crochet squares is long, and at the moment, I am in the middle — the point at which both the beginning and the end of this journey seem very, very far away.
But however far away I am from where I began or however far away I am from where I am going, right now I am doing my best to pay attention to the work that is in front of me and the stitches that need to be made in order to finish what is shaping up to be fifty-two rehabbed crochet squares.
Some of the progress I have made of late was on twelve of sixteen television test pattern squares:
While there are four more squares that need the two outer strips joined and there will be thirty-two ends to be woven in, I made a lot of what I think of as “inadvertent progress” where I got stuff done that I wasn’t fully aware of.
If someone had asked me, I would have told them that I spent most of my time working on this array of crochet remnants:
Working a round, weaving in the ends, then trimming them, and doing it all over again. While I did do all of that, it also seems that I managed to whipstitch crochet pieces that resulted in four more television test strip crochet squares begin almost ready for prime time.
When I get these two batches of squares done, I will need to set the Project Amigo squares aside for a few weeks while I work on some crochet projects I hope to give as gifts over the holiday, but as always I will move forward, one stitch at a time.
