I bet ya'll had a lot of making up to do with Emma and Arnold when the company left!


So productive. I have to tell you, I found a sweater in the latest Simply Creative Crochet mag and it's a top down raglan with bell sleeves and I believe a Doris Chan-it takes a lot of expensive wool and wool makes me all itchy anyway. I am thinking about making it in Caron Simply Soft-been wrestling with it for days now. I just need two skeins of a tweedy color to go with the tan and brown I already have. I won't start til January, but I want it so badly, but admit I am afraid of how it'll come out made with the CSS and washing it.


Go with Caron Simply do you feel about that Sage Green color? I like that Orchid color, but it may be too Eastery.


Oh, and your Shaped Ribbed is working up fast! I have lost some steam on mine and still am working on the back piece. I am taking a small break on it and hopefully will go back to it tomorrow. You have stamina!


That's so sad to hear about the pregnant woman being trampled. That is just awful. I really like the sweater with the wide neck. That will be awesome. Where is it from?


The photos are great Bron. Such a great looking family and two cute pups too. Love the Calico yarn you've chosen for that cardi. Perfect. It should look lovely.
Have a good week! I'll be checking in to see all you've done when I get back. :o)


Linda - Luckily we were at my Bio-Mom's so Emma just had a lot of jealous sniffing to do when we got home. :)

Deneen - Yeah - I really hesitate to substitute the very inexpensive yarn sometimes. BUT - anything is better than wool for me!

Wendy - I really need to meditate on which color of Caron to use. I was in Michael's yesterday & didn't see anything that tripped my trigger - the colors were a little too bright. On the other hand, the Red Heart tan flecked yarn is really what I was thinking of ...and I've used it before. It's really soft too. Then again, I'm thinking a nice navy blue or dark green would be good for that sweater/coat. Maybe I'll check Smiley's!

I'm really tired of all that ribbing so I'm afraid if I stop, I won't start again! I got a good start on the sleeves yesterday - just 20" or so to go! LOL

Wanda - I found the pattern at Elann along with the Calico yarn. It's one of 6 in a book by Berroco.

Thanks, Terri. :) See ya in a week!
