New Project Name: Mystery Achievement Afghan
I figured out how to interlock crochet in-the-round!
I wrote down what I’ve done so far, which is good because I am liking the design and it will be measure of how well my documentation skills are for this new method in case I want to write a pattern up.
Today, I might play around with digital designing to see what I can come up with and then see if I might go a different direction for the actual piece…a mystery! :D
The name of this project is spiritually related and inspired…I was listening to music from my library, while composing this post and my interlock crochet progress and the three songs that impressed themselves into my memory are Mystery Achievement by The Pretenders, Snowball by DEVO and Trust by Me’Shell Ndegéocello.
I did “achieve” something really big – a “mystery” to me: interlock crochet in-the-round!
And I didn’t lose a love – sardonically speaking, I never had one to begin with ;)
As I had decided on Mystery Achievement, Trust had started, confirming my choice, and which was another good name.
I knew there was something I was going to add: The yarn I have been using for this afghan development is Michaels Loops & Threads Impeccable (Fiber Content: 100% Acrylic; Yarn Colors: 01044 True Grey & 01011 Soft Taupe; Yarn Weight: 4, Worsted)
Originally, this pattern was going to be named Mediate by INXS because of the mindless crochet. As it developed the colors really reminded me of vintage clothing and I changed the name to Thrift Shop by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, featuring Wanz.

Price: USD $36.00 *
Fabric: 100% Acrylic

This is one more stitch pattern that will be included in my future eBook: Hounds-tooth & Beyond. Unfortunately, I thought I had crocheted all the different stitch patterns I wanted to include, but apparently not. Because they patterns bare many similarities, it was hard to identify my own work because I did not keep good track…live and learn. I then discovered from Ravelry that I need to create separate patterns before including them all in an eBook…aiyaa!
I must admit that I am so impressed how these two colors complemented each other so well and elevate the stitch pattern from thrift store to regal. This pattern is being created after I finish this post and will be available in a separate post. Stay tuned!

Fiber Content: 100% Acrylic

I always use worsted weight when I am testing. Because this is a stitch development project, yarn weight won’t matter much in the end.
