YARN: 100% Rayon Lavender
HOOK SIZE: E ? It doesn't have letter, it's smaller than an F
MADE IN Sep 2008
GENERAL NOTES: I got this yarn at the Knit and Crochet show in Portland and thought it would make a lovely scarf for_________ so I bought it. I may even have enough for another scarf!
I kind of knew the look I wantedfor the scarf, so I did a search for Lacy Shell Crochet Pattern and came up with this site http://crochet.about.com/library/weekly/aa031106.htm. I liked the look of that and tried it but couldn't get it to come out right, so I ended up putting 3 double crochets between the shells.

YARN: Premier Yarns Bouncy 100% Polyamide
NEEDLE SIZE: 14?
PATTERN: Garter Stitch 14 stitches across
MADE IN Sep 2008
GENERAL NOTES: Okay I got this yarn at Big Lots for $1 a skein. It is super super soft (like baby kittens) I've knitted 1 skein so I think there will be enough yarn (I only have 2 skeins). I used really big needles because it's fairly big yarn AND when I used small needles (see Project # ___ )it took forever...of course that was also much smaller yarn.
YARN: TLC Eden Green
NEEDLE SIZE: 10.5
MADE IN Sep 2008
GENERAL NOTES: I bought these lovely wooden needles at the Knit and Crochet Show in Portland . They are 10.5 and not very long, but just right. They feel very nice. I couldn't wait to use them so I broke out the free skein of yarn I got at the show for the Coats and Clarks Ladie who were teaching knitting and crochet and just started going, first I did a bit of a basket weave, then some stockinette stitch and making shapes out of it, some ribbing... maybe I should see if I remember how to do a cable.

YARN: Sensations Rainbow Classic Yarn- Bright Multi

MADE IN MAY 2008
GENERAL NOTES: Darlene made me a capelet from a pattern she found on Joann's website and I thought it would be good for my friend Gayle who was going through Chemo. I've worn mine a lot with the chilly spring we've had plus while I was donating platelets.

SOURCE: Part from Cool Crochet Hats by Linda Kopp and part Lily Sugar and Spice Cool Cap a free flyer I picked up at Pacific Fabrics
YARN: Sirdar Kool Kidz Chunky 100 g (I think it's English). It is light blue with pink, yellow and blue thread wound on the yarn with occasional chunks of it. 93% Acrylic 7% Polyester
HOOK SIZE: G
DATE STARTED: 3/1/2008
DATE FINISHED: 3/2/2008
NOTES: This Yarn was in a bag of yarn purchased at the Goodwill in Forest Grove Oregon, the bag was $4.99. The sticker on the skein said $9.95, looked like an unused skein.
The basic pattern I've been using is the Watchcap from the Cool Crochet Hats. Though I used single crochet and no ribbing. The pattern from Lily after a few rounds only increases every other round until the crown is finished. It gives a less abrupt downward slope.
