  1. Looking for a pattern for a sweater for my soon to be four year old granddaughter. Looking for a worsted weight cardigan with a high waist and decorative bottom. Long sleeved. If anyone knows of a pattern, I am looking at a size for a five or six year old as size so it will fir her awhile.


  2. I am making a ripple afghan in white and purple red heart. The red heart is a lot softer than it used to be, but my tension finger is getting sore still. Might have to bandaid that when working on this. I am working on it as I can, I have a knit diagonal afghan I am finishing now for a young boy with cancer, then a knit prayer shawl for the grandma who I work with. That has to be done first. But I put a row and a half at my meeting today. Going four rows of white then purple, considering doing two rows of purple these two rounds, then alternating. I see them often done in three colors, not so much two, so I thought this would break up the pattern a little. What do you think?

    Christi have fun with your graphghan I just cant do those, they drive me crazy. I have three patterns somewhere.


  3. I think it turned out well. How is everyone else doing? Well I hope my sister likes it, need to send it to Georgia now. My granddaughter thought a pin on it would look nice, it will be my sisters 50th bday present and she wants to send the pin and matching earings with.

     

    Yes she deserves the pin and earings too, she's getting OLD! lol, Christi and her sister are friends of mine. My sister turned fifty just recently too. I guess we are the younguns. Even though we are the grandmas. Love you! Sweater is beautiful. What was the weight of the yarn, worsted?


  4. I finished the spider man afghan and the rose and white one. I gave the pink one away, and my grandson got the spider man one. The other spider man one was found by daughter and it went to younger grandson.

    now busy making a baby one, with blue camo yarn and light blue and beige. increased from one amount of points to another, not sure of the number. but it looks good! no pictures of afghans though, sorry.


  5. Here are my pic .... what a great partner! Thanks you so much Honey Dew! I love it all! The card was awesome! LOL! I promise I will pass it on to my next swap partner! And I forgot to include the skein of red heart "stripes" in the photo....sorry! I love that yarn to death!

    The post it notes are to underline pattern repeats to make it easier to follow and the highlighters are to highlight specific pattern parts in your pattern. I am glad you liked it. I know red heart gets a bad wrap for its super saver yarn, but the stripes are very soft. I am going to get me some, like I need to buy more yarn.

    The yarn bombing is too cool.


  6. yep, I liked. I sent my package out to Jackie, Hope she gets it soon. Now to get busy on my next swap. swaps are so fun, like Christmas year round. I sent my package out meaning to fill out a card for Jackie, sent the package with a blank card still out of the envelope, card and all! Pays to pay attention when mailing.

    I had a picture of the colorful washcloth too but it did not like to load. I am in a washcloth swap right now, and now I have three new crocheted or knit washclothes, soon to get another one. They are all going to work with me, because I wash dishes on my job, but not at home.Lol, that's what husbands are for.


  7. Thank you, contacted her for the six point one, now can you direct me to how to turn it into a six to twelve to twenty four one? Threads or links or info on getting the pattern from annies attic? Does annies attic still make that pattern? I hear that Aggie may's six point is easier. I have only done twelve point ones. I am using baby yarn and size g hook to make a baby one. Is this possible or should I go for a simpler pattern for a baby one.


  8. mary, thank you so much for the box of goodies you sent me! A pretty scarf, a handbag, and a washcloth, and a box of herbal tea, fruit flavors! Yumm! Thank you, i love it.

  9. it is huge! But it will fit a twin size bed. I am wondering if it's gettin too big. But it is fun to make. And the points are really sharp. Going to see if the red can make one more round then maybe call it quits, even though I have a skein of blue still.

    Very pretty blue afghan.


  10. Your scarf is washed and drying now, should take a day or two, sprat/Jackie. I should have it out by maybe monday. And pictures up by then of what I got, Mary. Hi to the rest of you.I had the unexpected exitement of having someone back into me when I was parking today. So call to the insurance company tomarro, no police as it was a parking spot at Meijers gas station. I hope it goes smoothly and they agree it wasn't my fault. They hit me, I did not hit them. So I hope it goes that way. Noone was hurt and damage is not big, cars still drivable, it was only bumpers. But their vehicle looked worse than mine and their vehicle was newer.


  11. I am making a spiderman afghan right now, it's 59 inches so far with an I hook and I plan on doing at least ten more rounds. I did four rows of each color with a double crochet row of black between colors.

    I have started another RR with pink and white and I am planning a gray and black spider man one.

    Everyones look so nice, I especially like the blue ones, and the green ones.


  12. I sentuan emial rather lengthy one, mary and jackie. My flowers are growing with no help from me. No flower buying for me this year and no planting.We are redoing the bathrooms aand floors in there this spring and summer, so all money goes to that. Well a little bit for swaps and yarn and patterns, you know. I got a card for twenty dollars at Barnes and nobles from my daughter, need sugestions on how to spend it . Going to look at the books I want and see what isn't available at the store and at the library, and then purchase. Going to look at books by fav authors on fantastic fiction.


  13. I am failing at scarf making ability. I redid the second row and did it wrong. So back to the drawing board for me. Smaller hook me thinks for the finer yarn. Got plenty of time still right? I crochet faster than I knit, but this is fine yarn, so it slows me down some.

    Hope everyone has a good week, and hi to the other two who haven't been included in the three way swap emails, sorry.
