I woke both yesterday and today with the best of crochet intentions, and despite my diligence, I didn’t get done as much as I had hoped to get done, which, it seems, is a perennial state for me.
Be that as it may, shortly after lunch today, I took an inventory of where I was:
I had completed the second round of rehab for my current nine patch of crochet remnants undergoing rehab, and I had thirty-six of the thirty-nine crochet circles needed for the boho granny squares for my future boho crochet purse. All I really needed to do was to crochet three more circles, weave in the ends, and then deal with this pile of crochet yarn scraps that have accumulated:
The three crochet circles went quickly, and it was seemed like no time at all the ends were woven in, but then I needed to tackle the pile of yarn scraps. I tied one end and then another and then another (here is a video of the technique I use), and then finally it was mostly done:
I got this overview of the crochet remnants on their way to becoming full-fledged five-inch crochet squares:
and I tied the last end of the smaller scrap yarn ball to the last end of the larger scrap yarn ball, and wound it all into one even larger yarn ball:
I don’t expect that I will ever get done everything I hope to get done in a day, but at least I enjoy myself along the way, one square, one yarn scrap, and one stitch at a time.

Thank you, Miss Leslie, for your explanation of “frogging”. I’m gonna remember that!
The crochet circles are beautiful. As always! Your work is very interesting to me.
I can totally relate about best of intentions but you have shown how we sometimes don’t recognise the progress we are making until we take time to stop and take stock.
I keep my yarn scraps for filling and as stitch markers. What will you use your yarn scrap balls for? How do you deal with the knots?
