I am determined to keep my legs elevated ALL DAY in hopes of alleviated severe inflammation, so I crocheted since awakening the last of the Caron One Pound from which I was crocheting the seed stitch. This leaves me five-and-a-half inches away from my goal, to finish the first strip
I have indicated, by use of yellow arrows, to indicate the amount of displacement between the Caron One Pound and the existing yarn. It does not appear as bad as it was when I had just finished the first end. Once I add the final two strips, I am now more sure it should all even out.
Time to break out the Red Heart Super Saver I found at a yard sale last week.
My latest, concentrated effort is the field of white crochet seed stitch. The current Caron One Pound (color: 501 White; Content: 100% Acrylic; Weight: 4, Aran) I am using seems a bit more on the aran side versus worsted of the original piece; although, I see no width-stretching that, I hope, will even out in the end.
While you can’t see it, my field is fairly even in width to the beginning striped piece. I am hoping to complete the 38 x 8.5 section before I go to sleep tonight.
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?
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.

Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby Afghan: On da Hook
Time to do some serious knitting with my big balls. 😀 😀 😀
This is actually one skein of Bernat Baby Blanket that I have divided evenly for my next project, which will involve increases with ball one and decreases for ball two. I received this skein from CSNanaCat’s recent de-stash. 🙂
