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

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.
