I have spent the past two days working to put my crochet remnant rehab project to bed for a few weeks so that I can get started on designing and making some gifts I want to have done in time for Christmas, and while I made substantial progress — I finished all of the joining for the sixteen television test pattern crochet motifs I was working on:
Then wove in and trimmed all of the ends, and took this photo:
But that wasn’t where my crochet story ended.
In addition to the sixteen television test pattern motifs that I just finished, I am also working on rehabbing a collection of crochet remnants that I had found in a bin with a particularly extensive assortment of bits and pieces from my crochet past.
There were granny squares from an afghan I began and never finished, small crochet cookies leftover from my 2013 North Carolina State Fair project (aka Cookieghan 2.0), nine one-round granny squares that I made in September of 2015 for what ended up becoming my 2018 North Carolina State Fair project, as well as a few squares from the aptly named “Pixelghan,” and my much beloved yoga blanket:
And given the fact that the assortment is a wide variety of remnants from a wide variety of projects, and those different remnants require different treatments, so there is an element of reinventing the wheel as I move from remnants of one project to another and then another, but I am finally nearing the end with thirty of the thirty-six future five-inch squares completed:
As for tomorrow, when the sunrises on the new day, I will be there with my crochet hook in hand, ready to finish up the remaining six squares moving forward one stitch at a time so that I can then begin work on a new design or two.
