I just wanted to share my crocheted ruffle cardigan with you. I picked up a free project sheet from the craft store. It was a red heart plush pattern. You can find The free pattern here. It was a very simple pattern to make but I just didn’t like the way the ruffles were made around the edge. So I came up with a design of my own.
I used Lion brand yarn ball, which is called Pound of Love. It is Super soft 4 ply knitting worsted weight. 100% premium Acrylic and machine washable and also dryable. The color is 110 denim. I used a size K crochet hook. Something else I thought of is using Aleenes flexible fabric glue which is stretchable to glue the lose ends. I just hate when I wash my things I have made for the ends to come lose. So I thought this might fix the problem. I hope you all like it.
We have a family member who is expecting…. Time to get a few things made. We know it is a boy. And the name they have picked is Landon.
I enterd this doily in the gathering threads contest for the homepage picture and won…. Yayyyyy But to be honest all the doiys are very pretty. They all have so much talent there. I was shocked it won. It was fun making this one.
I am sorry I was so excited about wining the homepage contest that I forgot to post all the information. I used size 7 hook and size 10 threads. I can’t remember the names of the colors.

It is the “The Sweet Daisy”
By Aly Hymel
I just love her work.
This is my DAL #11 called “Oval Petals” This really isn’t a very big doily, its only 14 rounds, but is cute when made up. I used size 10 thread and size 8 needle.
Hope you like it,
Here are a couple of the DAL’s I have completed.
DAL #10 is done in the colors of Burgundy and Ecru size 10 thread and #8 hook. I really like this pattern. I am sure I will be making a few more.
DAL #9 was done in Ecru and Black trim. I also used a #8 hook.
This is my doily special project I did with my Yahoo Group called Gathering Threads. The doily is called “Lone Star”.
This is a very pretty pattern. As you can tell I like pink and purples. So this is done in a soft shade of pink with a
white shells and pink trim.
I am all done with my ADAL I am so proud of it. I could hardly wait to get it posted here. It is 1:26 am and I couldn’t stop till I posted it. Have to be up by 6:00 am but oh well. This one was worth it. I posted pictures of the doily in the Shella’s Album.
I used Aunt Lydias Classic Crochet Thread in size 10 and also #7 Hook. The color is “Dusty Rose”
I hope you all like it also.

I just sent this one out to my ex-mother in law in Texas. It was so much fun to make. It is a great pattern and easy to work up.

I made this one for my first Secret pal at Crochetville. I wish I had used a solid color. It is so hard to see the stitches with the variegated thread. I am going to do another one soon and only in solids.
Pretty Kitties Doily
I know this was a free pattern from http://www.freepatterns.com/fp_pdfs/2005/Crochet/afc_augfreepattern.pdf. I made this for my last secret pal Vicki (mythunderbird) I thought she would enjoy it since she is a cat lover.
