What's New?

Well, it may be time to upgrade the internet connection. Lately, going online has been a study in patience and frustration. Hence why it has been a full week since my last post! How am I posting now? Library. Love free internet. Internet that doesn't unexpectedly blink out. Randomly...

On the crochet front I have begun and frogged another baby sweater several times. I am trying to adapt one of the patterns for a boy's sweater. I have the yoke done and really like the look, however, keep waffling on the body. For a baby sweater does the bottom need to flare out or can it be straight? HELP! Please offer your experience. I could use some help.

While reading the latest issue of "Crochet Today" magazine (which I love and highly recommend) I saw an article on how to avoid sore hands and wrists. It gave a few warm up exercises and recommened wearing wristlets to keep the wrists warm and flexible. Ah, a good excuse to make some wristlets! In fact I believe that I will use the remainder of the Moda Dea washable wool that blogless Amanda gave me the other night for this project (hope there is enough!) It is nearly a full skein left over from the helmet liner my sister knit - Amanda rescued it with some judicious reworking of the opening. Thanks Amanda!

I don't think it matters if the baby sweater flares or not. I'm not a skilled crocheter so I don't know how to make the yarn behave the way you decide to!

Good luck and let us kow how it goes!

Your wristlets were coming out fantastic!
