Crazy Over You

“Every time I dream that were together;
knowing just how much I really love you;
you step into the room and steal my heart away;
can I live this dream just one more day?

Flowers On The Wall

The Name

Flowers On The Wall by The Statler Brothers

While the first thought that came to mind was Gryffindor, but in keeping with my naming conventions, I went with Flowers On The Wall, as the colors remind me of a sunflower.

The Scarf

Dimensions: 4 x 64 inches

Knit cast-on of nine stitches, worked in garter, alternating colors every two rows throughout. I might add fringe as I have an excess of yellow.

The Yarn

Lion Brand Hometown USA
Color: 219 Norfolk Merlot & 158 Pittsburgh Yellow; Content: 100% Acrylic; Weight: Super Bulky

I love this yarn for it’s softness and twist/ply. However, I won’t buy again unless I check the yardage. I had the yellow from a friend donation. I went JOANN‘s to buy a complimentary color. I did not notice until I got home that the yardage was different on the new skein: 64 merlot yards versus 84 yellow yards.

The perfect comment on modern economics: the cost of stuff keeps going up and they are giving us less. Disgusting!

Black Cow

The Name

Black Cow by Steely Dan

A black name for a black cowl.

The Cowl

Dimensions: 22-inch diameter x 5-inch width

Cast on 80 stitches with a knit cast on. Worked seed stitch for the entire skein. Purl bind off.

I was shocked that it did not measure up, diameter-wise, to the first one I created. I will concede the Lion Brand Jiffy Thick & Quick was thicker and more stiff. The Lion Brand Hometown USA is much softer and pliable.

However, the shorter length is still double-wrap-able.
