Punishment For Love by Bronski Beat
Purple Haze was a lazy man’s choice for the first name, as there is a lot of purple in here – I am sure a whole skein/ball at least; and, I don’t remember when I made the scarf. After having to rename due to duplicate naming, I think I happened across the correct name for how I am currently feeling.
Dimensions: 3-3.5 (width) x 82 (length) inches
Crocheted with a K hook in back loop single crochet, double-stranding at times to maintain yarn weight.
Balls and scraps of yarn without labels.
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*.

I did it!
I crocheted a second – confirming my pattern – and seamed it with a crab stitch to the first one to create a cushier pet pad for Fido’s tush
I used up my leftovers from side one below, first. I had to add the yarns above, beginning with a double strand of the Unknown Multicolor and Unknown Pink until Unknown Pink ran out; then I just continued with the Unknown Multicolor alone.
Dog Eat Dog by Adam and The Ants
Pet pad for a dog that likes to eat other dogs. :D Not! Just animal association between project and name.
The Pet Pad
Dimensions: 8 x 10 inches
Even now, I am considering making a second because it feels kind of thin; I certainly have enough oddballs.
Color: Reversal of Color*
Color: 33129 Porcelain
Content: 80% Manufactured Fibers – Acrylic, 10% Wool, 10% Goat – Mohair
Weight: 2 – Sport, Baby
Color: Turnabout Tulip*

Just consuming some oddballs. The Patons Lace was double-stranded to begin, but increased to quad-stranded.
This “pet pad” is part of my research and development for Man! I Feel Like A Woman; design construction only.

Little Bit O’ Soul by Music Explosion
Little Bit O’ Soul facilitated stitch development this time and – to me – relates to the meditative feelings from true prayer, and prayer let me to that feeling when it comes from your soul…joy!
As Like A Prayer and Church Of The Poison Mind are officially hibernating – one due to misplacement; the other due to lack of yarn to finish. So, as this is my third attempt at – what I have coined a prayer shawl: rectangular shawl/wrap with a repeating pattern; I added the repeating pattern part myself – I figured this was my chance to finally and actually finish a prayer shawl.
Dimensions: 14-inch width x 80-inch length (98-inch length)
Care: Recommendation is for dry cleaning, as fiber content is technically unknown.+ Suggested care would be cold hand wash, gently. Lay out or hang to dry.++
Thomas Hodgson and Sons Inc, Suncook
Color: 8 Mauve
Content: Natural Fiber, per burn test
This cone magically reappeared in my stash. This time I would finish a prayer shawl because I know I had enough yarn now and because I have changed my attitude towards my stash and just grab what’s next just to get rid of all this yarn.
