Punishment For Love

The Name

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.

The Scarf

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.

The Yarn

Balls and scraps of yarn without labels.

Something To Do

The Name

Something To Do by Depeche Mode

This marks the last item I was asked to finish.

The Afghan

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.

The Yarn

I have no idea, but would guess at DK* on a J hook, acrylic*.

Dog Eat Dog: More Cush For The Tush

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

Yarn

Unknown Multicolor

Color: Grapevine*
Content: Unknown
Weight: Unknown

Unknown Pink

Color: Patience*
Content: Unknown
Weight: Unknown

Unknown Cream

Color: Antique*

Weight: Unknown

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.

Little Bit O’ Soul

Name

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!

Little Bit O' Soul

Project

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.++

Little Bit O' Soul

Yarn

Thomas Hodgson and Sons Inc, Suncook

Color: 8 Mauve
Content: Natural Fiber, per burn test
Weight: Unknown

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.
