“I’m a lover, everybody loves me
Anyhow, that’s how I feel
Wow, I feel just like a Pollyanna…
“I’m a lover, everybody loves me
“Does anybody really know what time it is?
“Does anybody really care?
“If so, I can’t imagine why.
“We’ve all got time enough to die.
“I’m your only friend
I’m not your only friend
But I’m a little glowing friend
But really I’m not actually your friend
But I am”

Little L by Jamiroquai
Dimensions: 14.5 (D) X 14 (H) inches
This was supposed to be in my bar-front-loop stitch until I realized I was working in the round and therefore never seeing the back there the bar is…doh! Okay, so what is the fabric I am making…stockinette!? Then realize waistcoat stitch, but with a twist, and with my hyperflexed(?) wrist!?
LOVE the dense cushy fabric, softness of yarn and colors!
All Unknown, presumably acrylics. They were all little oddballs placed in a bag together; I picked up the bag from the meeting last month. Worsted to Aran weights, with an H-hook.
Tainted Love/Where Did Our Love Go? by Soft Cell
I don’t know why I didn’t think of this before, but I have a two name song for two similar projects.
The Preemie Skullies
Size: Preemie, based on 3-3.5 inch circumference
The skully on the left was constructed using the third back loop hdc or ribhdc. I do like the way this one looks but I think it needed to be taller. I was questioning if hat height equals crown to brim or last increase round to brim? Now I know: a quick reread clarified the issue for me: last increase round to brim!
All unlabeled scraps from CSNanaCat, which means acrylic, and the weight was worsted.
I Shall Believe by Sheryl Crow
This is an appropriate name for a hat I improvised the design. I shall believe that I will figure this out.
Size: 0-3 months
I was going for something similar to the one pictured at right. I think my primary mistake was building the crown in double crochet; I feel like maybe I should’ve used Half double crochet. This hat has a weird fit.
While my hat does measure 6-inches high with a rounded crown, I am going to classify the size as 0-3 months based on How to Size Crochet Beanies + Chart by Heart Hook Home.
The yarn for this project is unknown. I had the same yarn on two different cones with different information. Because it was so thin and I wanted to rid myself of it, I double stranded.
Hole In My Life by The Police
Random song title from my music library.
Dimensions: 3 year old (modified)
Pattern: Hat with Bow by Tracie Faulkenberry
Pressed flat, the beanie dome is visible and dominant; however, a little fluffing will reveal a pillbox flavor. I could not try on to see how it lies on the head, but I am not liking the harsh stitch difference. If you are noticing “worms” in the crochet fabric, that is on me; it never occurred to me that hiding my tails behind the front post double crochets would have looked much nicer.
