Substitute crochet remnants

The past couple of days my crochet life has not gone as I had planned.

It started Monday, when I set out to track down these sixteen crochet remnants:

I checked the bag I am currently using as a purse, I went through the bins that house my increasingly large “traveling yarn stash,” and I checked every nearby horizontal surface.

To no avail.

Wherever those sixteen remnants are, I could not put my hands on them then, so I rifled through the bag I am currently using a purse — the one I had just gone through in search of the previously mentioned sixteen remnants — ¬†and lo and behold, I found these twenty substitute crochet remnants:

Like the sixteen remnants I was (and am) unable to find, these were rehab ready with the ends woven in and trimmed.

So I got to work on the first round of rehab as I had with the five-by-five array I recently completed, and soon enough I had twenty crochet remnants with forty ends to be woven and trimmed:

Pleased with the progress I had made, I was going to start weaving in the ends to prepare for the next round, but it was at this point, that an outside event occurred, and life was disrupted in a way that literally took all of my attention, and I found myself unable to focus on the crochet at hand.

So I didn’t.

Instead, I counted the five-inch crochet squares that were finished and found that I have just enough to pack up another boxful for Project Amigo:

My hope is that by clearing out what I can, I will have an easier time both finding the missing remnants and returning to the work and hand — one stitch at a time.

  1. It’s all in the Colour and scale! That looks fantastic. Just curious what colour you would use to join these together? And do you sew or crochet the joins?
