May 26, 2006



First time commenter, long time reader (well....a few months anyway. :) )

I'm just about finished making a top VERY similar to that one. I got mine out of a German crochet magazine. In fact, I think the magazine has the same name, just in German. You can see my swatch and a photo of the top here:

I don't crochet nearly as fast as you do, so even though I started this during the Olympics, I'm just finishing up now. I want to wear this to my family reunion this weekend, so I have to finish today or tomorrow! :)


Always love your projects. It keeps me revved up to finish mine!!

Hey-if you can do 12 reps, three times (sets) in a row, and do it easliy and not feel much, go on to 8# or 10#. Arms and shoulders pick up muscle memory very quick, so use the 3# and 5# for doorstops and move on!!!


Wow, a leather sleeper sofa for $150! What a bargain! It should last you forever.

Oh what decisions about color! Let us know what you decide. How about an olive green? That would look good for any season.

Love your weights. Love the blue.

Have a wonderful weekend everyone!


Audrey and Cece are both looking fabulous. Fingers crossed for no booboo's on CeCe :)

And lemme guess, ummm, shopping??


Arm flab - I just might have to go buy me some weights. I'm fighting "my mother's arms" and can't stand it! You'd think that with all the knitting we do we wouldn't have any flab on our arms atleast.
Beautiful sweater, hope you find the color you want to do it in soon. Cece is looking good! I'm onto the sleeves today.

Hi Anna! Thanks for coming out of lurkdom & commenting. :) Yes - your pattern looks very much like mine. I wonder if they're from the same designer? It looks like your sweater has motifs around the neckline, is that right? Regardless, it's lovely. I love the color you chose :)

Have a great time at your reunion!

Thanks, Kim. :) I really need to move on to DH's weight set - at least I can take on & take off weight as needed. These 5 pounders should do for awhile, though - I definitely felt a bit of strain yesterday when I used them for the first time.

Margaret - I'm still so tempted by green, but heck - I think I've gone a little overboard with it. :) I do have that lime green and aqua tape yarn I bought from Elann recently. I had projects in mind for both, but I'm thinking about using the aqua for this. You're right - major decisions!

Jillian - ::wink:::

Sheri - I just wish I had a guarantee that weights would help get rid of that flab! I swear it crept up on me one night when I was sleeping. I just hate it! Grrrr.

That Queen Emma & the Vikings book was interesting! It kickstarted my interest in that time period. 1066 is sitting in my TBR pile and I'm trying not to add the two others to it. I'm going to need to move to a loft w/wall to wall bookshelves & a library ladder soon. (Which is actually a dream of mine).

Audrey is looking good! I like the cabling.

Oh no! Smiley faces! Lordy, I remember when those things were everywhere.


I agree the mint green is for babies, but I tossed my sweater in a RIT dyepot, worked a charm and I have a denim sweater I will wear.


Carrie - Yep, smilies are now back "in." (shudder!) I'm really enjoying 1066 and look forward to starting Emma. I read one other book regarding her life & it was a tad dry. Ever since I researched my family history & found some famous names (like Emma) I've been dying to read more. :)

I like the cabling in Audrey too - and the weight of it in Kool Wool. I can already predict it'll become one of my fav sweaters.

Beth! Dyeing! I never thought of that. Thanks for the idea - it just might salvage that Mint!


The 1066 book looks interesting. I haven't been un the History Book Club in years.

Audrey is turning out very well. I love the cables on her.


I second Beth. Take some dye to that Mint.
