This morning, after completing all of the attendant chores that accompany, waking I got back to the business of unraveling squares.
As you may recall from the last episode, this is how far I had gotten in my efforts to reclaim yarn:
After many hours focused on unraveling yarn and resisting the temptation to start on any one of the amazing projects that has been tempting me, I had gotten this far:
I unraveled squares of all colors of the rainbow. Reds, oranges, yellows, greens, blues, purples, and a lot of colors in between.
As the number of squares to be unraveled diminished, and the time to begin making new hexagons grew nearer, I grabbed a tape measure, notebook, and pen and sketched out the details of my future rug.
Based on the measurements I took, the rug will require anywhere from 263 to 305 hexagons depending on which size is the best fit for the space it will be filling. Until I begin to join the hexagons and lay them out in the area I plan to place the rug, I won’t know which size will better fit the space.
I hope to have this box of yarn unraveled and wound into neatly organized balls by Saturday afternoon.
Then I can begin the process of taking two steps forward.
