Hi java!

Thanks so much for the wonderful compliments. As for the answers to your questions I didn't count the exact hours. I just allotted a certain number of days for each section of the project.

I averaged about 2-3 hours of crocheting almost every day for the 2 week period so it might be 40 plus hours total...give or take.

I used the exact same materials that are listed for the pattern.

YARN/WEIGHT: Red Heart Super Saver, worsted weight, acrylic
HOOK SIZE: crochet hook size "I" (5.5mm)

Hope the info helps  Smiley

DaisyAlly...Thanks! Funny enough I am the Queen of Impatience but with the right motivation I kept going. Picturing my Aunt in pain and in serious need of a pick-me-up did it for me.

ZellaBella ...You're so kind. Thanks for the well wishes for my Aunt.

DreamerOnCloud9...Thank you and you're welcome. Hope you enjoy making it as much as I did. Your kitty made me squeal with joy...too much cuteness!

Thank you everyone!

p.s. SummerGirlfriend...Benjie thanks you Grin and he thinks your fur baby's also a cutie patootie. I agree!

p.p.s. victrola...oooh I didn't see your pup's picture until now so I had to show the love. What an absolute sweetheart! Too precious!

Hi Rio_Supreme!

Thank you for being so kind.  Ha ha...yeah, my computer has senile moments too but not to worry I think it has more to do with the actual site. They tend to have frequent chunks of time when they're offline.

Anyhoo, try the link again a little bit later or better yet I'll post the direct link to the "Pets" section of the website as well as the main page for their "Free Patterns" section. Tons to look at.  Grin

Definitely get your needles clicking away to warm up your sweet whippet.  Awwww, you definitely have to post a picture of him modelling your creation when you finish...going to look fabulous!

My Aunt recently broke her leg and I wanted to cheer her up by sending her a crocheted gift. Found this free afghan pattern on the Coats and Clark site and it worked up pretty quickly. 48 squares, 4 different colors, 12 of each color and voila...pretty flowers!

It took me a couple of weeks to finish with lots of breaks in between so even with my procrastination it graduated from UFO status to FO status in relatively good time. Any and all comments welcome. Thanks for looking.  Grin  All thumbnails are clickable so clicky clicky!  Wink

I've been an avid crocheter for over eight years now so I admit I was getting a little bored living the life of a "hooker".  Cheesy  What to do...what to do? I decided to expand my crafting skills and finally picked up the sticks in the last year or so. The final verdict? I am in L-O-V-E!

My appetite for knitting patterns, needles, magazines, etc. seems to be growing faster than my actual ability to complete projects so my list of FO's is quite small to date. However, I have stayed the course and managed to finish and even modify a few patterns to my liking. Here are some pics of my recent creations along with pattern links/info.

Any and all comments would be greatly appreciated. I get oodles of inspiration everyday looking at all of your masterpieces and I strive to be that good some day.  Grin

DOG SWEATER: Here's my baby Benjie modelling his first ever knit sweater. I couldn't handle the number of loose ends that were popping up once I got to the leg holes so I improvised (got lazy) and added in plain sections of colors without following the chart. That's probably why there's a lumpy mid-section but I'm still happy with the end result just the same...Benjie not so much. He's not digging the turtleneck collar.
PATTERN: Garnstudio DROPS Pattern #102-42

CABLE CARDIGAN/JACKET: Made this for my mom's birthday and she actually liked it. Woo hoo! She's very fussy about her clothes so I had to modify the pattern to suit her liking. Big "oopsy" factor...ran out of black yarn and had to use a different brand which explains why one sleeve & the collar are a little darker than the rest of the jacket. I swear it's not that obvious in natural lighting.

PATTERN: Family Circle Easy Knitting Holiday 2005
Pattern #15 designed by Gayle Bunn (Jacket with garter stitch collar and 8 stitch cables)

MODIFICATIONS: SLEEVES: I eliminated the sleeve shaping that would have created a flared sleeve & rather than follow the plain stockinette stitch I followed the cable pattern for the body and put three 8 st-cables on each sleeve. BODY: Took out the waist shaping to give it a straight line and lengthened it to hit mid-thigh.

BOY'S CABLE VEST: Christmas 2007 present for my cousin's son.

PATTERN: Cable Vest Pattern No: 70202A Lion Brand Cotton-Ease http://www.lionbrand.com

BABY SHRUG: Yet another Christmas 2007 present but this time for my cousin's little girl.
