Gosh! I can’t believe it was way back in June that I rescued a pile of crocheted squares from a thrift shop. Below is the photo I took of them.
I know I’ve been busy knitting Super Scarves, but I can’t believe I’ve let these pieces ‘age’ as long as I have! I finally decided what I’m going to do with them. I dumped out the lot, sorted them out and found the most dense blocks. I’ve paired them back to back and am crocheting them together to make potholders – for me! I needed to replace some of my beat up potholders and this is my inexpensive solution. By the end of the day, I will have replenished my supply.
There are less dense blocks that have lovely designs and I’ve decided to use them in a decorative antimacassar for the back of my couch. I will connect the squares on the diagonal and try to arrange toe colors to achieve some symmetry.
But for today, just the potholders Goodnight is at basketball open gym. When she’s done, we are going to wrap up her science fair experimentation out on the front lawn. She’s way ahead of schedule with the project, but we need to take advantage of the good weather for this one.
