Free Is Cool
...in this color it's called "Aqua Velvet". I like it pretty well. I crocheted a swatch holding the disco yarn with some cheapo worsted weight acrylic. What a total pain in the ass!! No wonder they're giving it away. I like looking at it and petting it but have no idea what I want to make with it.
My progress has become snail-paced on Geof's sweater. The pattern is from the February 2005 issue of Crochet World. The instructions for the sleeves was written way more difficult than necessary so I'm improvising. In fact I'm basically improvising the whole thing and just using the pattern as a guide. I've completed the front, back, and 1 1/4 sleeves. I hope to finish it this weekend. We'll see.
While we're on the subject of sweater patterns in Crochet World, I was just looking at the latest issue online for October 2005. I would really like to get my hands on a copy of it. I don't have a subscription to the magazing because the majority of patterns inside are not to my liking, to put it nicely. However this issue looks really good. Here are a few pics I found...
I think both look like they'd be fun to make. I really like the table runner. Guess I'll have to hit up the folks at Crochetville and see if someone has a copy they'd be willing to part with.
Guess that's all for now. Geof and I are heading down to visit my folks for about a week. We're leaving tomorrow so this may be the last post for a little while. Hope everyone has a hauntingly awesome Halloween!!
