Finally Done!!!

Well, I am doing a little happy dance as my sweater is finally finished!

It's a little shorter than what I would have originally liked, but overall, I am happy with how it turned out. I made it using the Modular crochet technique described in the Winter 2005 issue of Crochet Fantasy magazine. It's done mostly with single crochet and "front facing single crochet".

I will definitely be making another one sometime, but for now, it's time to turn to other projects, because too much single crochet all at once will eventually make you go a little loopy. I plan to use some of my scrap yarn to make a bed for our cat, and will probably use either strips or squares and join them together. I have also recently joined a group called "Hugs from the heart", which is an offshoot of an online Yahoo group I belong to, Crochet Talk. Hugs from the heart has members who donate a minimum of 10, 12" squares a year, which are assembled into an "afghan hug" to be sent to members experiencing illness or other difficulties and needing a bit of a pick me up. I'm pretty excited to be a part of something solely designed to brighten someone's day.

That's about it for now. Have a great weekend :)

very nice . . . one day I'm really going to try making a piece of clothing for myself. Love, love, love the color and I'm not partial to any one color.

WOW! That's really nice! I was tempted to make my own sweater... not sure I have the patience. You go girl!
