“Say my name, say my name, say my stupid name…

Red Hill Mining Town by U2
The last “red” song in my music library. Unfortunately, I still have more of the red natural fiber yarn.
Dimensions: approximately 88-inch length x 2.5-inch width
This time I did, what I think is called – a brioche knit in a 1 x 1 rib.
Unknown Red, Orange, Pink 1, Pink 2, Mahogany, Taupe
All yarns burn tested. Unknown Pink 2 was the only yarn that was a man-made fiber; all others were natural fibers. Too bad I didn’t test before incorporating into scarf. Unfortunately, because I was in a dispassionate phase, I incorporated it despite being thinner than the other five yarns.
My apathy seems to be worsening as I continue to try and rid myself of this red yarn. I think adding to this is the fact that while I am crocheting/knitting for charity, I feel like I am crocheting/knitting without purpose. I think after I rid myself of this red yarn, I will work on something for me.
First of all, I think I cast on and bound off wrong. I used both strands when I should have only used one color.
America The Beautiful written by Katharine Lee Bates, and composed by church organist and choirmaster Samuel A. Ward
My first impression on looking at this scarf was a landscape from sea to mountain top based on the arrangement of the yarn pieces. That led me to thinking about the lyrics from America The Beautiful: “from sea to shining sea.”
Upon further examination, I realized that the scraps represent the different people who live in America, all coming together for the good of a productive and functional scarf…government, country; it could happen!
I will leave you with this “crown thy good with brotherhood,” you frikkin’ idiots! The idiots being all the people I hate.
America The Beautiful Scarf
Nine stitches, crocheted using seed stitch. I definitely start my projects with a looser tension, indicative of the varying width. Then again, it could be the yarn weight differences, but I doubt it because they all seemed pretty equal to me.
America The Beautiful shall be donated to charity at the El Segundo Slipt Stitchers guild meeting in July.
