‘Cause the body goes Boom Boom Boom
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*.

Deep Sleep Afghan
Deep Sleep by The B-52’s
Deep Sleep Afghan
Constructed in single crochet with an E hook, I was going to donate to charity as I had received the yarn for free from CSNanaCat. However, as I know of a baby coming into this world, and having completed the afghan way ahead of delivery date, I am going to send to my friend and his wife as a gift for their infant.
I was going to add a solid white border in chenille, as well, but my fellow fiber artists thought white me too much of a contrast. They finally got me to agree on a light/silver grey. However, I don’t know now. I am done and should leave well enough alone.
Dimensions: approximately 25.5 inches square
Newton’s Yarn Country Chenille
Content: 10% Rayon
Care: Dry-clean or hand wash in cold with mild detergent. Air-dry.+
Having received this from CSNanaCat, I didn’t pay particular attention while cake-winding, but when I finally started the second hank, I noticed a difference in dye lots. Close up it’s less noticeable for all the colors, but in the picture a distinction is noticeable. Oh well!
+ Care is suggested care; laundry care not on yarn label.
About The Project Name
Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby? by Dinah Washington [Rae & Christian Remix]
I was looking for a name that might match the print, but came across a baby reference first.
About Is You Is Or Is You Ain’t My Baby
Dimensions: approximately 28.5 inches square
I am surprised and pleased that approximately 258 yards of super bulky makes a decent size baby afghan. This is a tip to file under cost efficiency.

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. 🙂
