Sometimes it seems that the universe knows exactly what you need and sends someone to pack it up in a box and mail it you. Or it could be that since I have been writing about rehabbing a thousand crochet remnants for almost eighteen months now, one of my astute readers took pity on me and helped by sending crochet remnants to assist me in reaching my stated goal of a thousand rehabbed crochet squares.
Either way, I am enormously grateful.
Last night when I remembered to check my mailbox, I found a curiously interesting small box inside. It was pushed safely to the back behind the regular Wednesday circulars and other assorted mail.
My interest sparked, I read over the address and saw that it was from a regular reader. I had already received a lovely packet of squares to add to my Project Amigo count from her. What, I wondered, could it be?
Back in the house, I fished out a box cutting knife that I have been using to open our myriad boxes from our endless move, and I opened the box that had arrived in the mail. When I finally got it open, I could see that it was filled with crochet joy which included this assortment of miniature skeins of yarn:
My inner nine-year-old was thrilled, and today, I further captured the essence of the joy with this photo of the neutrals:
as well as this photo of the more rainbow inspired yarns:
Adding to the general wonderfulness of it all were these twenty-seven crochet remnants:
There are, as can be seen, a few ends to be woven in, but there is also an added thrill of taking what someone else has begun and adding to it.
That, and it all came in a super cute box.
I’m not always enthusiastic about surprises, but sometimes you don’t know you wanted something until you get it.
