Oh, the jacket is coming along nicely-word of warning-the LB Suede somehow grows as you use it (I swear). Happy Halloween!


So, what did you think of the new colors? I like Lake and Berry, and Snow is of course a good basic. There's a couple of others I'll have to see in person before I make a judgment, but overall I was a bit disappointed in the colors they chose to offer it in.


Happy Halloween!!!

The jacket is looking nice. Perhaps I will do something with all the LB Suede that I have.


I cant wait to see the jacket done! Happy halloween to you, we dont celebrate it here in norway. But some kids may come knocking on the door.


Happy Halloween! I know how you love this day :)

All I could think when you explained all the pattern errors was what would someone do who didn't have all your marvelous experience? That's a crime. I hope it turns out wonderfully! As payment for all that crapola!


Those new cotton-ease colours look nice for clothes. :)

I like how the jacket is coming out. :)

(Oh... and I wear the scarf you gave me lots! I'm curious... what yarns is it made from?))


Once again, you have me wishing I could crochet better. Wanna come east and give some lessons? ;o)

Love the new CE colors. Note to self: use up stash before ordering any new yarns. lol


The jacket is looking lovely. That must be awful having to adjust the patterns just about every single time you make something.

Have a great day everyone!


I knew I could count on you to let us know about CE!! Happy Halloween!


thatnks for the heads up on the return of cotton ease.

lion brand has made many knitters very happy


Happy Samhain to you Bron. It's actually Beltaine here...we being on the opposite side of the planet and all. Enjoy your celebrations. They sound like fun. Thanks for the update on CE. Yay. Great news. :o)


That's looking great- I love that color!


LOL, Deneen - I'll keep a close eye on it!

Leisel - I'm thinking the color card isn't very true to what the colors actually look like. I'm wondering if a store around here will carry the new CE so I can see it up close. Otherwise, I'll be ordering kinda blind.

I, too, was a little disappointed. I was hoping for some richer colors like raspberry/rhubarb, forest green, etc. I think it's a little odd they went from neon brights to washed out pastels!

Vera - I'm really surprised that it's crocheting up as well as it is. I'm cautiously hopeful for the overall project. :)

Jillian - the actual lengthening isn't a huge deal (although I'm glad I caught it when I did!) but doing that almost guarantees running out of yarn & that's frustrating. The ridge thing is odd - the construction is very different - and I should've fixed it when I was right there but I convinced myself it wouldn't matter. Ha! I should know by now. LOL

You bet, Jill - I'll be the "Traveling Crochet Instructor." Lily Chin, eat your heart out! LOL

Margaret - I think all the adjusting I'll have to blame on myself. I'm the one with the long waist! ::wink::

Nik - Definitely!

Terri - Beltaine when it's cold outside - that is toooooo strange. ::wink::

Thanks, Tandi! I'm really liking the color too. :)
