As I ran out of green yarn first, I decided to name this project in its honor: Green Onions by Booker T. & The MGs. This was made from my leftovers from Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most Cowl, which I am loving for its softness and warmth. Had I thought about it sooner, I could have made a matching scarf for Mojo, but it is too long now…add another project to my never-ending queue…ha ha ha ha ha!

Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most Shawl

With leftovers from It’s My Life Shawl and being a big admirer of West’s designs, I am trying to replicate Exploration Station into a crochet pattern.

As you can see, my swirls are not as definitive as West’s, but my is reversible and I there colors are different on each side! I might try again with taller stitches to better replicate the swirl pattern, but I think math is definitely needed to figure out the formula for short-rowing, and I don’t want to become a mathematician also!

My plan today is to start the simulated brioche using back/front post double or treble crochets. After that, I may need to purchase more yarn to finish this project.

In case you were wondering about the project name – Spring Can Really Hang You Up The Most by Ella Fitzgerald – I have been really going through a tough emotional state lately and I think pink and green really represent spring to me the most.
