    I don't even remember if I signed up for this or not!! If I did, I sure haven't been faithful in posting!!! I've been using up LOTS of skeins and pieces of skeins, making Warm Shoulders Cape-lets these last two weeks! My Crochet Club meets at a local Assisted Living home every Friday morning, and I took in a couple of the cape-lets to see if anyone would like them. Well!! Since I did that two weeks ago--I've made 8 of them!! The last 3 were just dropped off last weekend, so I don't know if they've been snatched up yet, or not. Man! If I'd known they would go over THAT well, I'd have been making them before this! Well--to the count of skeins of yarn--since I used up remnants for all these, I just have to figure how many skeins I used by how much it takes to make 1. It takes about 14 to 16 oz for one, so I'd guess I've used up somewhere between 112 oz to 128 oz!! Sounds good like that, doesn't it??!!

    Does anyone know the name of this pattern?

    Yes, Lahonda--that is the pattern. I've made several, and have even shortened the patterns to make shawls, just by not making as many repeats. I LOVE the pattern! Have fun!

    This is not a selling site. However there are several sites online where you can sell your crochet. Maybe someone else can suggest a good selling site.

    I can really relate to WIPS being out of control!!!!! I went through only 10 of my bags of yarn and miscellaneous today--and MOST of them were more UFOs than yarn!!! I really need to get this under control!!!!
