Destination: Charity; Pattern: Garter Stitch Baby Jacket by Nancy Elizabeth Munroe; Size: 0-6 Months
Looks like I needed someone to “show me” about tension…ugh! I love the colors and the blocking!
Easy pattern, no seaming. I was using aluminum DPNs on the sleeves, but after the second time falling out, I switched to circulars. Too bad, because now I have a seam at the needle joins. Oh well, at least one is under the arm.
Oh, and I am missing the neck button.

What Difference Does It Make? by The Smiths
I thought I was knitting along just fine and dandy until I noticed I had missed a stitch and thrown my seed stitch pattern off…grr! After making a stitch and resuming, my second thought was “what difference does it make?” No one will “see” the errors, especially with such a busy yarn?
Dimensions: 26-inch diameter x 5.5-inch width
Knit cast on 80 on a US 15-24-inch needle, and worked seed stitch throughout. Purl bind off.

Little Red Corvette by Prince
I am trying to rid myself of all my scraps and odd balls, so I got all my DK and sport weight yarns and started crocheting. Nothing was working. Restarted about three times and got frustrated working with the beginning yarns. Then I had the idea of double-stranding.
Pretty challenging crochet, as the Unknown Red 1 yarn was bumpy and so was the pink. However, the red ran the entire length.
Unknown Pink: Man-made fiber
Unknown Magenta: Natural fiber
Unknown Red 1: Natural fiber
Unknown Red 2: Natural fiber
Unknown Carmine: Natural fiber
All yarns burn tested.
If memory serves, the Unknown Red 2 yarn is rayon from Netwon’s Yarn Country; I had used it previously on Holly Golightly (2011-2012), a shawl I gifted to Kathleen. Jeez! six years that scrap has been in my stash; well, it’s gone now!
I was going to construct in single crochet only, but I notice my single crochet was creating a bias on the fabric. So I added double crochets and did not notice any change. Lightbulb! Do a second row of single crochet to counter act the first. As you can see the natural tendency is to twist. I think it’s related to the width.
The double crochets created lightness to a scarf whose heft is substantial.

Because I Got High by Afroman
Today is 4/20, the unofficial day of marijuana and this is what you come up with when you have – a believed – incomplete skein of yarn, ODDBALL.
About Because I Got High
Care: Consult a dry cleaner.
Dimensions: 12-inch diameter x 4-inch width
Price: USD $10.00
Because the targeted scarf was too short, I improvised a connection and turned it into a cute little cowl.
About The Yarn
This ODDBall came to me from CSNanaCat, as part of her de-stash. It was unlabeled and it appeared to me to be incomplete.
Take The Money And Run Bag – Charity Donation
Take The Money And Run by Steve Miller Band
Random selection from my music library, which seems quite appropros, considering the object. Although, upon selection, the thought of a gang of old women + one old man, taking the money, stuffing it into this bag and running got me chuckling.
Wooden* purse handles
Care: Consult a professional dry cleaner
Dimensions: 5-inch depth x 18-inch height x 20-inch width
Price: Charity Donation
Having tired of working on OPP (Other’s People’s Projects) – 😀 who remembers when O.P.P. was something one was down with 🙂 – I just could not bring myself to make anymore squares, especially since they were made at such a high tension. And fortunately, I did not need to because I all of a sudden remembered that I had won these purse handles through the guild raffle. Effectively, the bag closure is similar to a clam shell…better to keep the cash in the bag!
There is no lining – who has time for lining when the stuff won’t sell. Most appropriate for bigger items. A project bag, a money bag, remembering to keep notions and coins in smaller, more secure enclosures.
Care: Machine wash warm, Tumble cry low
