Very good, and thanks! - I shall keep a lok out for the Vogue Stitchionary - always looking for more stitch patterns :) Not a bad price from Amazon and free shipping too! Hmmmm...


You are very welcome Bron! I'm so glad you like the vintage patterns and I'm happy to send them to you.
I start my day reading your Blog (after checking my email, LOL). Yours is my favorite.


Robbyn - Yes, I'm probably going to return the preview copy & then pick up a cheaper copy from a bookseller. :)

Thanks, Margaret. :) Such a nice compliment really makes my day. :)

Love the colors in the may not be cotton ease...but then, what could be? ;) but it has potential! I'm excited to see what you do with it.

Amy Boogie

I have had both CP and CE. They are not alike in my opinion. I think there are pretty big differences in them not that they both aren't good yarns just that I don't see why stores are saying they're a direct substitute.


Earplugs or an iPod will give you the quiet while the boys are at home. Or duct tape works too. And you know that I am kidding about the duct tape.


I have to agree. I had some cotton plus and I was so unimpressed by it, decided to give it away. Maybe I will wait for your final reviews before I buy it again.


Lisa - I agree that it definitely has potential! If I can crochet with it, I'll be ecstatic!

Amy - I agree. I'm really confused as to how anyone could say they're the same. Unless the stores are just desperate not to lose sales! Then again, I'll be there were a lot of peeved customers who were expecting something like CE.

Wendy - I'm definitely going to try it out soon - it's burning a hole in my stash. :::wink::
