My first choice was Deep Sleep, but that name had already been used this year. This was the second-most appropriate name in my music library, as when Mojo is inside and covered up, he is Behind The Wall Of Sleep.
The Sleeping Bag
Dimensions: approximately 28-inch Width x 25-inch Height
First of all I can’t believe how long it took…three days! Now that I see how long, It seems short. Oh well, so does the sleeping bag…thinking of crocheting a couple more inches.
I did notice during photography that my seem did not remain straight as I had suspected. Perhaps the use of a stitch marker at the beginning of each round might have helped. I seem to be experiencing early-stage dementia when it comes to crocheting in-the-round and ending a round.
Unknown Fibers, mostly man-made
I really liked working with four yarns plied together and playing with blending. Had I been more prepared, the project would have been more thought out in color. I started with that thickest yarn I had and tried matching ply manually throughout. There are about two rows where I got too thin, otherwise, I think I did a good job maintaining ply.
The best part: I got rid of a bunch of acrylic scraps I had collected.
Mojo told me I had to crochet for animal charity today.
Dimensions (Small): 15 x 16 inches Dimensions (Big): 14 x 18 inches
My animal charity choice: Hope For Paws. However, I had no idea what size to make. A call to Hope For Paws only sealed conformity as the business norm: no one to answer the phone, the voice mail message are way too long with a multitude of instructions, etc.
Unknown baby yarns donated to me by CSNanaCat.
Both pads were crocheted in-the-round, in single crochet. The yarn is triple-stranded and I used an M hook.
The center-out design leaves too much room for positive ease, causing mis-shaping of the rectangle over time. Next time, I will work in rows for a firmer fabric. Still, I’ll have that curling crap to contend with…grrr!
I am a big fan of the color blends that occurred with the triple stranding.
Random selection from my music library. Actually, being a fan of connectivity, I could say that “someday” I was going to remember my in-the-round skills and yesterday was the day.
Another twelve-inch square for one of the El Segundo Slip Stitchers’ charities.
Mixed unknown fibers.
This is the second square using (single crochet, chain, single crochet) in the corners versus 3 single crochet and the former alleviates fabric bias pinching. It is a bit trickier keeping stitch count even, but I have accommodated to the point where stitch markers are no longer needed. My project bag – accidentally double-named – is going to look FABULOUS!
