It’s a miracle I had enough yarn for this project and that it came out to a decent size because not until I finished did I realize the yarn I used was bulky, not worsted. I knitted the project on US 8 needles because I thought the yarn was worsted weight. I 💚 this project.

About The Pattern

Garden View Shawlette by Tracey Withanee

💚💚💚 Easy to follow, by the middle section I was on auto-pilot, which of course caused a few row tinks and stitch adjustments.

I am really liking the softness of the cotton, combined with the same sensation yesterday working on some Russian Bargello techniques. For my Russian Bargello, I only have 300 mg of cotton: Patons Grace in Color 60409 Ruby , Mondial Cotton Soft Speciale Baby in Color 200 Black, and an unknown cotton left over from Pink Elephant. I am thinking I will use this sample as a pillow cover.

And I need to find another pattern for Mini Mikey’s booties because the one I was using – “Crochet Baby Booties – GREEN ZEBRA by Croby Patterns” – was poorly written. I thought it seemed familiar to another pattern I had crocheted in the past for Eve’s twins: Crochet wrap around button infant boots- girls and boys by Ashlee Prisbrey. It kills me how people can copy other people’s work; I am highly skeptical that two pattern would be created in the exact same manner. Whatever! I’m not in it.

Change of Plans

Mojo's Costume

Boo!

I was going to finish The Girl From Ipanema Goes To Greenland shawlette today, but I received the string lights for Mojo’s Halloween costume.

Unfortunately, I am short a string!

Fortunately, I have money today to order another in time for Halloween delivery.

Unfortunately, I already broke one string.

Fortunately, they are going to send me a replacement with my current order.

Now after having strung the lights once, I realize a battery pack under the spider belly might be better than letting the battery capsules hang from the spider legs.Save

ŠA Hooker’s World

Cast On: May 3, 2015
Yarn A: A Hooker’s World Hand-Dyed Merino Superwash (Yarn Color: The Painted Desert) a la Newton’s Yarn Country Merino Superwash (Fiber Content: 100% Merino Wool; Yarn Color: Unknown [Natural]; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted)
Yarn B: Unknown (Fiber Content: !00% Wool; Yarn Color: Unknown [Mint Green]; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted)
Needle: US 9

This project name started with the yarn cakes, which reminded me of succulents, leading to The Painted Desert by 10,000 Maniacs.

A quick look at my stash revealed a bunch of the mint green color I had stashed away, more than enough to equal the 10.3 oz of The Painted Desert I ended up with. I knit this stitch pattern in It’s My Life Shawl and loved the definition. My first “impressions” are of an english garden, but I think I’ve used all my garden song names previously. Next I thought green and The Girl From Ipanema Goes To Greenland by the B-52’s. Love them!

I could not wait to show you how it’s coming along and share my vision: I am thinking of working to 99 stitches in each section, then I don’t know if I want a yellow accent row – though more I think about it, the more I do – or a green accent row – which might not accent as much. Well, I have 24 more rows before I have to make that decision. I am thinking some kind of thicker purl bump row or a thin lattice row.

Future plans include tow more mixed section of 99 rows, separated by accent rows and then a decorative edge in mint green.
