New Yarns

Quickly, because I'm supposed to be writing Chapter 4 now... A little while ago I went to Artfibers' knit and crochet show. I was a little disappointed by the dearth of crochet showings. Isn't that always the way? But there was a gorgeous cardigan made of linked double crochet--the inspiration for the waist band on the Sweet sweater. I bought three balls of Ming and asked them to wind some extra balls from their last cone.

Also got Trendsetter's Granita--a soft bulky one-ply--from Article Pract to make a cloche for my friend. Poor thing got into a car accident and had some stitches in her scalp. She now needs to wear hats while her hair grows out.

The swatch is in a textured stitch, from a cloche pattern in SweaterBabe.com's Fabulous and Flirty Crochet.

You're doing very well as a novice--soon you will not call yourself that. Continue the good work!
