    Sorry, that was an address I was trying when crochetville was having tech difficulties, so I didn't get the message. This is my regular address.

    ISO: Paton's Afghan Pattern Name/Source

    The stitches look tunisian, like what can be found in the Interlocking Crochet book by Tanis Galik. But have you tried emailing Paton's customer service?

    Christmas Tree Throw

    For the Humane Society Raffle: (Pattern by Caron) This actually has some very pretty stitches in the pattern as written, but they were obscured by the boucle and bulky yarns I used. The Simply Soft Shadows has been discontinued so I used up all my stash and added a variegated yarn for the trees.
