Borrowed The Big Book of Weekend Crochet from the library recently, and thougth i’d post my thoughts. nice – had a handful of really neato patterns in it. the patterns were classic, applying basic stitches and details in an appealing and versatile form. the only drawback – too many baby patterns. I really liked several of the sweater/wraps/cardigan patterns, and one or two tank top patterns. The rest was not to my liking. Do I think it’s worth the 18.00$? No. But I might consider it used for way cheaper.
Made this neato shawl for my pal on Secret Crochet Pals. I really love this blue yarn! I got it as a gift from a friend; her Mom had tons and tons of stuff she used for machine knitting, and this came from that.
My base chain was several inches longer than my arm span, and I did shell, sk 2, sc, sk 2 shell for the body. I edged it with 2 rows of sc, then a row of shells. I am pleased with how it turned out.
I made this cute little shrug for Lila not too long ago from this pattern. I poked along at it, taking 2 weeks. Bad, Mommy! She’d near grown out of it between the time I took the measurements to the time she put it on. Sigh.
cute, tho! Baby Poo Poo (the younger cousin) will love it, and soon get it. =p
