Wow, Readers Digest has a crochet book?!! Looks like nice patterns in there.

So glad you are feeling better. The doctor's office needs to make a note in your chart about your reaction to the medication, at the very least. It would be wonderful if doctors' offices stayed open on the weekends!

Have a great day everyone!


I'd seen the Reader's Digest online some time ago, but without the pictures I didn't know if it was worth ordering. The pictures you included show that it's a pretty good book, and I'm going to buy it. I like classic styles because it takes me so long to finish anything. LOL
The Shine Sport is working up nicely. It's going to make a beautiful top.
I'm glad your feeling better, but the doctor sure needed to call you after the bad reaction you had to the medicine.


I didn't read your blog yesterday so I hope you're feeling okay. Poor thing.

The patterns in the book look pretty cute. Are these advanced patterns, or a pretty decent mix of intermediate and easy patterns? I may have to check it out. :)

Hope you feel better.


That book looks awesome! I love that hat, the granny square gloves and the afghan. Thanks for the heads up!

I hope you get this issue resolved with the doctor soon or find a new one!

And um, is there a way to obtain this magazine the pineapple pullover pattern is in? I'd LOVE to make that for my mom.


Oh - so glad you're feeling a little better; I was beginning to worry.

That sweater looks fantastic - and I think I like the color of the "Shine" better than the "Brilla" anyway. I'm dying to see it on you!


Doctors suck, seriously they don't "get it".

I got that book from the library and fell in love with the paisley afghan-I won't make it, but I did love it.

I hope your doctor has called you by now. Maybe.

I really like the Reader's Digest needlecraft books, they're just so....easy to read and the stitch patterns really pop.

But is that Crochet in No time? For you, isn't that the equivalent of putting instant coffee into the microwave and telling it to hurry up? You prolific needleworker, you. ;)


Hehehe...Carrie. You crack me up.

No - the Dr. didn't call me, another nurse did. Sigh. Details in the next blog entry!

Deneen - I'm thinking maybe I could make that paisley afghan an ongoing project. (Yeah - right - I know I'd never finish it!) But, like you, I DID love it!

Robbyn - I love the caramel color too. :) It's SO soft! This is my first experience with the sport weight Shine and I'm very impressed. I think it'll fuzz like crazy with wash & wear, but it might be worth it for the inexpensive price.

Thanks, Rebecca! As far as getting a copy of the magazine, I'll post details of it on my blog tomorrow but I'm kinda doubting you could get one here. I'm not sure about ordering from France, though.

April - the patterns are a pretty good mix between easy & advanced. Plus there are lots of good graphs & pix to help you along the way. :)

Linda - I took a chance ordering it so I'm really happy I liked it. :) I really was pleasantly surprised!

Margaret - I swear, the medical community needs to get in shape around here. I'm having nothing but bad luck lately!


I got that book a few months back, and made a couple of the baby berets. It's really a nice book.

Hope you're feeling better.


I heart that afghan too! I even kinda like the granny square hat. Is that wrong? Anyway, I almost decided I had to stop reading your blog because I feel so inadequate. How do you ever accomplish so much! Not just knitting and crocheting either. I am bone lazy and usually proud of it. I hope you are feeling better soon. I was sick for a couple of weeks recently and did not do a dang thing!


Love the 5th pic-very dainty tank made only of small pinkish flowers barely attached together.
