“…on end of the rainbow with a fortune to win; it’s so different from the world I’m living in…
‘Cause the body goes Boom Boom Boom
Another Day by Paul McCartney & Wings
This was a random music selection, but it does fit the hat in an American kind of way. The colors of this hat remind me of ice cream, or a target.
Dimensions: Baby, 14-16 inch (C)
Pattern: Itty Bitty Beach Bum Hat by Kiel Lemon
I really love this pattern!

Bread And Butter by The Newbeats
This was the closest I was able to associate with my music library, after searching yellow, plaid, gingham, square, checkers and finally butter.
Dimensions: 30 x 33 inches
This is my first plaid/gingham attempt. Being the king of scraps, I was had plenty of yellow scraps to work with. And because I like a challenge, even it is a coincidence, I am digging the gradients in this design: midtone: hue shift and undertone: light to dark – a gradi-plaid, ginghad, plaham?
Super Yarn Mart! Odd Balls
Color: Lemon Meringue*
Content: 100% miscellaneous odd lots of undetemined fiber content
Color: 26 [Butterscotch*]
Content: 100% Dupont Orlon Acrylic Fibre
All yarns were worsted/aran weights. I did not keep good track of the unlabeled yarns, as this was a learning project. All colors fall within the yellow-orange spectrum, including some self-named colors: Buttercup* and Gold.*
Below is the palette I worked from, incorporating lightest shades first.
Something To Do by Depeche Mode
This marks the last item I was asked to finish.
Dimensions: 38 x 22.5 inches (approximate)
I added the color on the opposite side of the grey to provide some balance. I never did a tension check, considering how loose I was crocheted the worsted on an H hook. Oh well. Unfortunately, I noticed the cuffs on Con Los Años Que Me Quedan are not even either.
Ugh! I just want to get back to some knitting, hoping the different hand motion will provide some relief for my right hand; and I want to work on some of my own stuff now.
I have no idea, but would guess at DK* on a J hook, acrylic*.

Con Los Años Que Me Quedan by Gloria Estefan
My first impression from the images was that the baby is looking to the left. My first name desire was that song where she sings “to the left,” or something like that, but I could not recall the performer or the song name. However my English search by the word “left” did return a Spanish name meaning, a title I can identify with as well: With the Years That I Have Left.
The Infant Set
Well, we got an infant cardigan and bonnet that were pushed off on me, for finishing, again. Just sew in the ends, I was told. At least this time it was true, unlike the infant afghan, which is next. Please know that my complaints are tongue-in-cheek. I love to help; just don’t judge how I help!
I did have to do minimal seaming, some of which I did wrong, requiring a second attempt. Very odd seams I might add; maybe some form of darts?
Based on my years of experience as a hooker, I am pretty sure my assignments of worsted and acrylic are 99.9% true. The color: Cotton Candy Sugar Rush* or pastel multicolor made up of pink white and baby blue.
