When I Come Around by Green Day is the name of this project. Ironic because January 2018 is when my great nephew is expected to come around. The other thing I noticed is that the romper is green and the name of the band is Green Day. My romper measures 9 x 14 (H) inches.
About The Pattern
Blue Orchid Baby Romper by Croby Patterns written by Doroteja
While I am not crazy about the trellis top I am glad to finally have found a infant romper for a boy. Either the pattern is written in shorthand or I did not read the entire pattern once again, experiencing difficulty starting each row. The larger sizes are available if you download the PDF, but I don’t trust their PDF method, which is more involved than necessary.
About The Yarn
Bernat Baby Coordinates (Fiber Content: 75.2% Acrylic, 22.2% Rayon, 2.6% Nylon; Yarn Color: 01012 Iced Mint; Yarn Weight: 3, DK)
I am not crazy about this yarn for the damn pile and that string that runs through the yarn. I have noticed it is easier to crochet with a Susan Bates versus Boye hook. I used a US F/3.75 mm hook. Otherwise, I am glad to have a baby to use this yarn up on.
Despite rusty counting skills…
Despite rusty counting skills, I finally finished Days Go By Sweater for M. K. Aguilar. I can’t believe how complicated a simple pattern can be. I saw this sweater as I was surfing for a pattern. I immediately loved the Hexagon Sweater at Cozy’s Corner. As it turned out, it is based on Elizabeth Zimmerman’s sweater, the pattern I never acquired. The first thing that bothered me about the pattern was the neglect that one is crocheting a piece that is “meant” to ripple and curl. Because of this error, I made the pieces twice! I’ll chalk counting errors up to poor health and painful feed.
Anyway, I am finally done and I love it! I might put snaps on, but will wait to talk to the mama. This sweater was made from Bernat Baby Coordinates (Fiber Content: 75.2% Acrylic, 22.2 % Acetate, 2.6% Nylon; Yarn Color: 01009 Soft Blue; Yarn Weight: 2, Sport) with a US F/3.75 mm hook. I want to make one in green and blue stripes next.
The project name – Days Go By by Dirty Vegas – was a random pick from my music library, but is kind of apropos as to the passing of time to birth day.
I received the featured image in my email…
I received the featured image in my email yesterday. I was contracted to make these back in 2015. They took seven months to crochet at a cost of USD $500.00.
Unfortunately, I did not collect my full payment. I discounted them $100.00 due to discoloration of older thread I started with. Bleach washing did not rectify the problem. Then I discounted another $100.00 just to get them to the customer and out of my house. I forgot to mention that they were not completely paid for until about last month, May 2017.
I love how they look on that chair!
A Hooker’s World How Deep Is The Ocean Scarf Pattern v1 USD $2.00
Thanks to Kathy – one of my pattern purchasers – I have updated A Hooker’s World How Deep Is The Ocean Scarf Pattern with an error that has been there since 2014! Yikes. As such, a long-time error like this would not suffice with a simple strike-through correction.
A Hooker’s World How Deep Is The Ocean Crochet Scarf Pattern now includes: Advanced Instructions and better written Fundamental-To-Intermediate Instructions. Of course, I have updated my price for this pattern: USD $2.00.
I found this pattern to an excellent choice with any short- or long-pooling gradient yarn because the advanced simple crochet really breaks up the pattern/pooling into something unique, actually showing off the texture right through everything.

My crochet houndstooth stitch development has been a regressive process from the beginning…
My crochet houndstooth stitch development has been a regressive process from the beginning because I finally made a scarf in the recommended houndstooth stitch pattern – Griddle Stitch – and now I see it!
I will be presenting all four scarves to the recipient and let him choose which one he likes best; the three that are left will go into inventory.
The work up of this scarf was very quick as I only had to change color every row, alleviating additional yarn twisting. This scarf measures 66 (L) x 5 inches. I used Michaels Loops & Threads Impeccable (Fiber Content: 100% Acrylic, Yarn Colors: 01040 Black and 01005 White; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted) with an 8/H – 5.0 mm crochet hook. The project name should be obvious: Black or White by Michael Jackson.
And now…back to work on the eBook: Houndstooth & Beyond.
