This short stack of crochet squares will be mailed to various ROAKs and comfortghan requests on Crochetville. (Click on the picture mosaic in the previous post to see a slide show of them all.) I had a bunch of random half skeins of worsted acrylic yarn from way back when I first started all this yarn business in high school. Just sorting though it all was interesting. There were skeins I had no memory of acquiring and tail ends of yarn from my very first projects.
So with a dozen or so partial skeins in a big wicker basket I made simple crochet blocks. It was really relaxing to grab a color and crochet away. I could fasten off and choose a new color at any moment and the yarn I had selected for demolition disappeared fast. They’re not exceptionally delicate or precisely planned but I thoroughly enjoyed the process. Now I’m ready to start the New Year with a slightly leaner stash. Could a LYS be in my future?
