Well I bought my issue of Knit1 today at wal-mart...ya.. I really love this magazine and think I will buy the subcription to it, alot of really nice articals in the piece. thank you everyone that helped me out with finding this... Robin.

Are you going to make the Butterfly Shawl? I still haven't started although I have all the yarn. Too many things calling for my attention. I want to get started soon, though.

Holy cow; I got behind and I didn't even realize until today that Tom Boonen left the race on Tuesday. I can't believe it....

What the heck though, with the green hand run-in?!? That was a weird moment.

Weirder yet: They have banned the green hands from the last several yards of the race. I guess if the riders get cut by one in the middle of the race, it's okay?

And then Thor said the next day that he got cut by someone's camera. But he's the only one who said so. Wouldn't he know?

Spacecase, your sock looks fantastic! What kind of yarn is that?

Thanks! This is KnitPicks Simple Stripes. I was just on their website to make sure I had the name right and it looks like they don't have this color listed anymore. In fact, is says "Quantities Limited." I hope it is not being discontinued....

Hi all!

I love Candi Jensen's crochet patterns for kids. I just bought Candy Tots and Candy Babies, and I'm going to be making lots of clothes from these books in the upcoming months. Thought maybe there were others who would like to crochetalong.

This is my first project

from Candy Tots. I have 7 of these squares done -- only 151 to go! Cheesy

I like the game, but I also like the helicopterviews from France! And see the lovely towns and the crazy people beside the road.

I agree, this is my favorite part. This is my first Tour. We started watching because my husband recently became interested in bicycling. He was hoping to hear more about the bikes and equipment they use and the training they do, I think. I am enjoying seeing all the landscapes and places they are biking through.

During Stage 1, I worked on my sock

When I picked it up, I suddenly remembered this yarn color is called "Vineyard" which is appropriate for France, and the stripes with the white along the center remind me of the highway. So I guess this is a good Tour project!

Buttonhole Row: (WS) K1-tbl, p1-tbl, yo, k2tog, work to end as est. Work 3 more rows in Twisted Rib, end with a RS row.

Buttonhole TAB: (WS) Bind off 4 sts, purl to end - 50 (54, 58) sts.

I had to read that about 3 times before it made sense to me  Roll Eyes Looks like the YO in that first row is the buttonhole and then you bind off 4 stitches to make the tab to overlap onto the collar and button the button. Then you start on the body and shoulders.
28  CROCHET / Projects from The Happy Hooker by Debbie Stoller / Re: 2 FOs: Fat-Bottom Bag & Short 'n Sweet on: July 02, 2006 06:52:43 AM
Thanks for the kind words everybody! Both of these projects were a lot fun and I was pleased with how they turned out. I've used them both a lot since I finished them and I find myself wishing I had more colors of each so I can use them even more! Every day! That may be the best thing about making your own clothes. When you find a pattern you love, you can have it in every color, forever.

Thanks MK! And thanks for this gorgeous pattern. I have a hard time not wearing my gloves around all the time. (They just look So Good with my pajamas.)

I will probably end up making a lot more of these - for myself and for other people. After the first one, where I was still getting a feel for the pattern, the second one went super-fast. And I love it when I can crochet things together, instead of sew.   Grin  I think the next set I do might be just plain crochet across the back, instead of the lace, using self-striping yarn. My sister would like that.

I actually crocheted the prologue, last night on OLN channel. I do have several pairs of socks I intend to knit for Christmas presents; that would be a good Tour project. I'm not sure how much of it I'm actually going to get to watch on TV, though. (Baseball season  Wink) Still, I'd love to knit a long.
