Behind The Wall Of Sleep: off da hook

The Name

Behind The Wall Of Sleep by The Smithereens

My first choice was Deep Sleep, but that name had already been used this year. This was the second-most appropriate name in my music library, as when Mojo is inside and covered up, he is Behind The Wall Of Sleep.

The Sleeping Bag

Dimensions: approximately 28-inch Width x 25-inch Height

First of all I can’t believe how long it took…three days! Now that I see how long, It seems short. Oh well, so does the sleeping bag…thinking of crocheting a couple more inches.

I did notice during photography that my seem did not remain straight as I had suspected. Perhaps the use of a stitch marker at the beginning of each round might have helped. I seem to be experiencing early-stage dementia when it comes to crocheting in-the-round and ending a round.

The Yarn

Unknown Fibers, mostly man-made

I really liked working with four yarns plied together and playing with blending. Had I been more prepared, the project would have been more thought out in color. I started with that thickest yarn I had and tried matching ply manually throughout. There are about two rows where I got too thin, otherwise, I think I did a good job maintaining ply.

The best part: I got rid of a bunch of acrylic scraps I had collected.
