“Couldn’t we just make love instead? Say yes ’cause it’s what we do best, and I’ve had such a hard day.
“Every time you speak; a pearl falls in my cup.
“I’m a lover, everybody loves me
Anyhow, that’s how I feel
Wow, I feel just like a Pollyanna…
“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.
Brokenhearted by K. D. Lang
I have been told – twice now – that this cowl looks very christmassy. While I have to admit that it does, I named it Brokenhearted because that is how I was feeling during the knit.
Dimensions: 11-inch diameter x 20-inch height
Ever since this cold weather set in, I have needed more protection while crocheting/knitting so I decided to make a longer cowl that I could pull up over my head.
Knit in garter.

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*.

Deep Ending by Deee-Lite
This scarf marks the end of the red natural fiber yarn that I had been trying to end.
Dimensions: 4 x 104 inches
This scarf is a mix of back look single crochet and filet crochet. The single crochet portions present similar to brioche: one color dominant on one side, a second color dominant on the other.

Color: 9942 Misty Blue
Damn! My aim was to use all natural fibers. I completely brain-farted on the Patons, but those mohair guard-hairs misled me.
The Cascade Heritage Silk Paints was double-twined with the Patons Lace and made for great coloration.
The Unknown Red is the yarn I have been trying so hard to rid myself of because of it’s crinkle / boucle texture.
I started in back loop single crochet, but thought the scarf might be too dense. I have this irrational fear that crochet is heavier than knitting; so much so that I feel the item I am crocheting may be cumbersome at times. So, I added sections of filet crochet to lighten it up.
I am amazed at some of the colorations in this scarf: the grey against the bright red and the blues/purples against the lighter reds of carmine and salmon.
I based my pattern repeat on nineteen rows; unfortunately, I ran out of red yarns and just ended it.
