Actually, I started this yesterday, but my rage was so intense I could not focus. I spent the day in bed, in the dark. For dinner I ordered in: $30 effin’ dollars for 2-topping medium pizza, chicken, cookie-brownie and a 20-ounce Coca-Cola from Dominos! Home-delivery robbery!
Here’s the humorous side of this project:
When I got the yarn, again from CSNanaCat, I thought it was pretty with it’s red/blue-thread-stripe. I have not yet performed a burn test, but I am pretty sure it is a natural fiber. As I began to work on it yesterday, I was able to discern other colors as well: orange, yellow and green, but in smaller distances.
My first thought at the rainbow flag hint was to name the shawl after a gay anthem, but today when I found my project on top of the pizza boxes from yesterday, the shawl reverted back to the blue/red striping because the shawl almost disappeared…not for reals.
The color of this yarn reminded me of the color of Regan’s vomit from the movie The Exorcist.
Twelve stitches worked in garter, slipping the first stitch and knitting the last stitch through the back loop on a US 10 needle. This item will be donated to charity.
Care: Machine wash warm. Air dry. + Color: Olive ++ Content: man-made fiber, per burn test Weight: Bulky +++
Unlabeled, comprised of three different textures, which in my opinion, based on the color lend very much to vomit consistency. In all honest, the color could be denoted as gold, which I was not my first association. This latter association only dawned on me, using gold aluminum knitting needles. To seal the gold fate, I remember trying to find gold in Adobe Photoshop, favoring a darker yellow to an pale orange.

I started this yesterday during world wide knit in public day because I was talking so much, I kept screwing up my stitch count on Deep Sleep.
As this yarn was gifted/destashed to me, I will be donating this scarf to charity.
Unknown due to no label, but I am pretty sure it is Red Heart Sashay, mostly comprised of acrylic fibers. GODDAMN Red Heart for not finding a better way to present their product! The simplest would be to wind on a piece of cardboard, presenting the lace already flat.
I had a hard time reconciling a song title to this project when I began back on May 26, 2018. I had settled on Samba de Orfeu because the color of the primary yarn reminded me of a verdant island celebration, like Carnaval!
Beginning May 29, I started a crying jag that has only complicated my allergies, leaving me completely congested and on the verge of tears with the smallest associations I make throughout each day. As such, I searched for a song titled Crocodile Tears and found on by Eydie Gorme that perked me up.
About Crocodile Tears Afghan
To be honest I had no idea what to make anymore that I am no longer attempting sales. Luckily, I had been to the guild the week previous and got some ideas about what is needed for charity. While it is not afghan size, I believe there are some children in need also. And finally, I could work from the center, outward until the yarn had been exhausted, and I was left with only about a six-inch leftover!
Peter Pan > Hey, Saint Peter. Interestingly, another association could be drawn from Captain Hook’s waistcoat > waistcoat stitch, the stitch used to create this scarf.
About Hey, Saint Peter Scarf
I am on a mission to knock out some serious crocheting/knitting and red myself of all the extra yarn I have. That is why I took this opportunity to learn, right? How about Waistcoat Stitch? Also known as, Knit Stitch, and pleasantly referred to as Pigeon Stitch by myself because it does not line up when worked by turning rows, as it does in-the-round.
Hey, Saint Peter had a hex on it from the very beginning. In my previous post, you’ll note my experience with trying to find a video that properly teaches waistcoat stitch. Once again, I started with too loose a tension and unfortunately, by the time I was finishing I was angry crocheting. Because the videos were improperly clear, the first half was done according to my understanding; when I joined the second skein it dawned on me what I was doing wrong. However, this new way presented different problems: for some reason I could not get my crochet-bearing, and I think the reason was because of hook placement. Just glad to be done. Might use waistcoat stitch with a no-ply yarn.
Shades of white, grey and black are very representative of winter for me: snow, gloom, depression.
About A Hazy Shade Of Winter Scarf
More often than not, I will knit novelty yarns because I can see the live stitches on the needle; crochet does not offer such easy visibility sometimes. Because I only had sixty-six yards per skein, I knew it had to be a scarf. I started several times: k1b, ribs, garter, stockinette, I could not make up my mind. I decided to go with stockinette field surrounded by garter because I know stockinette has a tendency to curl and I am not about to block anything.
I still notice how the garter edges keep folding, back, behind the stockinette. Grr! There must be a solution; that shall be my mission.
Love this yarn because I am a mohair fan. Color: Gorgeous! Knitability: Easy, but watch out for the second strand getting loose. Because they only identify yarn color by number, I don’t know which color is the odd man out, nor which color corresponds to which color
