Ease On Down The Road

Ease On Down The Road

Name

Ease On Down The Road by Michael Jackson, featuring Diana Ross

The colors of this scarf created a visual of Michael Jackson and Diana Ross easing down the road. The colors also ignited memories of the cornfields where Dorothy encountered the scarecrow.

Designer Notes

My crochet hound’s tooth stitch development has been a regressive process from the beginning because I finally made a scarf in the recommended hound’s tooth stitch pattern – Griddle Stitch – and now I see it!

I will be presenting all four scarves to the recipient and let him choose which one he likes best; the three that are left will go into inventory.

And now…back to work on the eBook: Hound’s Tooth & Beyond.

Designer Notes

I am in love with this project because of the look, the colors, the tension and the memories of Peanuts cartoons – it reminds me of Charlie Brown’s shirt. Actually, I just visited the Peanuts website and realized that Charlie Brown’s shirt would be solid with a zig zag black stripe. I guess I can add one more project to my queue.

Coincidentally, as I sat down to post this project, I started my iTunes and the first song that came up was Thriller by Michael Jackson, so I guess I can create another Halloween-themed object. Now that I am in Halloween mode, I am thinking of doing a ghosty cowl – perhaps in tapestry crochet; it depends on how long it will take to design.
