« Rumor Has It That... | Main | 2006 - The Year Of The Vest? »

November 18, 2005



Love your picks as usual, are you going to strike the same pose as next to last on left? that will be cute! heehee


Yea, vests! Less yarn (so less money), no sleeves to knit... so they feel almost instant gratification. At least, that's what I've heard. I've never had a vest I looked good in, so I never go "Oooohhh, I wanna make that" when I see them in the magazines. I envy you if you can wear them!

I noticed in part of your site that you made the Seraphina Shawl. Was this Crochet? If so, what yarn did you use (there's a whole slew of Joann Sensations yarns) If so, did you change colors to get that striping? I'm thinking of making one for my girlfriend, that's why I ask.


Cec - You bet - me in a model pose. hehehehe

Leisel - I'm hoping I can wear them - I used to when I was super thin and now...well..I don't know! But as you said, less yarn, no sleeves to knit, there are lots of reasons to try them again!

Harry - Yes, it's crochet. I used one ball of Joann's Rainbow Boucle and no, I didn't change colors - the ball did that on it's own. I used an entire ball in that shawl and if I did it again, I'd use part of a second 'cause that shawl is a little too small for my 6' self. If your friend is smaller, it would be just right. :) Hope this helps!


I am trying to find the Tahki fall/winter 2005 booklet. I need a purse pattern from it. Could you sell me your book? Thanks
