The first time I had Dim Sum was in San Francisco’s Chinatown, and the array of choices was nothing short of astonishing.
My plan to complete as many of my unfinished crochet projects as I can in the month of November is similar to the offerings one finds when eating Dim Sum; there is an unfathomable array of choices of a little of this and a little of that.
For me, today was a day of disparate errands punctuated with bouts of crochet and modest progress, and rather than completing any one crochet project, as with Dim Sum, I sampled various techniques with various projects.
First was a rug I am making for my oldest son. I had mistakenly thought that every detail of the ten circles that will comprise the rug had been attended to, but when I laid them out to be joined, I discovered such was not the case. Several of the circles had renegade ends to be woven in, and three of the circles needed a round of slip stitching around the outer edge.
Impatient to get started on the joining, after weaving in ends on two of the circles, I sorted through the pile looking for circles that had been completed so I could begin joining them. I got this far before it was time to get my youngest son to his trumpet lesson:
The work of the late morning and early afternoon had been productive, but had also left me with a project too cumbersome to take to the trumpet lesson. I grabbed my traveling stash of Red Heart Super Saver yarn, a 4.00 mm crochet hook, and began the drive to my son’s trumpet lesson.
Once we arrived, I got to work on making a granny square for my Go-go granny dress to be. To my delight, not only did I finish the one square, I finished another as well.
As I concentrate my crochet efforts on completing various and sundry projects that have accumulated over the years, I do not expect that I will finish them all, but I do expect to finish at least a few of the projects so as to free up space to better organize the projects that remain.
