Sigh-I honestly wish the tech editors knew something about crocheting/knitting. I have a pattern I am working on now that, I have decided to use the chart only for-don't feel like rewriting the whole thing in case it's horrible and I hate it halfway through it. Kinda takes all the fun out of it though.

Sometimes I wonder why the heck I even bother!


Your lime slice is adorable! Love the idea of an orange to team with it - is a lemon far behind?

I think I'm following the crochet directions with the exception of "SH." What is that, please? I hope this project is smooth sailing from here on in. That is a truly fantabulous crochet book - I think it may need to move in with me too.

I sympathize with your need for spring break. I'm so happy it's Friday, it's pathetic!

Hope the PE class goes well.


I'm guessing this is the way the pattern showed it, but don't citrus seeds tend to be clustered around the center? I find they all tend to be sort of attached to the center seam of the casing.

I'm glad you were able to figure out the pattern! :)


Andrea - You're such a professor sometimes. ::wink:: That's my avant garde *interpretation* of a lime slice, meant to be representational kitchen art.


Paula - the "SH" is "shell" and it's explained in the instructions. :)

Regarding PE - I got to switch to science instead! LOL I got out of it once again. hehe

Deneen - I agree with you 100%. While the instructions weren't *technically* wrong, they certainly were obtuse to the point of frustration!!!


Glad you figured out the cardi issue. Because I'm thinking about searching it out for me!

That post read mostly to me the way the adults in the Charlie Brown cartoons talk, but I'm glad you figured it out! And are feeling better, and got to take a paid nap! That's awesome.

That baby outfit is so cute!

I haven't seen The Illusionist yet. I really liked The P- , the other one. With Hugh Jackman. The Prize? The Prestige! The Prestige. Yikes.


Glad that you figured out the cardi - the instructions would have frustrated me as well, and I am sure I would not have figured them out - Go Bron!

Love the 2 pattern books - that tea pot cozy on the front is very cute. I keep looking at my cotton, petting it and putting it back, soon....soon....


I'm glad you are working out the pattern before I start it. I wonder what pattern checking process that these books go through. I guess it varies.

Karen Carter

Glad you figured it out, not just for you, but for me! HEHEHEHEH


The school where I taught before retirement isn't getting a spring break this year. They are using those days to make up for snow days.
I'm am so thankful that you figured out the cardi pattern. Maybe there's hope for me making one now. Drawing a diagram was a great idea! I'll have to try that next time I get stuck on a pattern.
Love the kitchen patterns, especially the place mats.


Really glad you got that pattern sorted. Phew. Glad you can salvage it now as it really is a lovely looking cardi. Love the lime slice too. :o)


that lime slice is just cute as all get out Bron!
