The back has a circle design, with a long ruffle.

Summer Crocheting Angst
It is hard to crochet when it’s hot out, especially a big fluffy project. I couldn’t stand the weight and added warmth of this sweater for more than a few rows, then I’d put it down and grab one of my (many) smaller projects. I think I completed 1 pair of baby socks, 2 pair of baby booties, another BICO (Baby its Cold Outside) baby cardigan, a hat for my son Tyler, a belt for myself, and several swatches for potential projects. Yep, all that in between this fluffy mass of warm yarn.

Well, finally she’s done. I probably won’t wear this for awhile. We were still swimming in the pool yesterday, it was almost 90 degrees in Minnesota! For lack of a better name, right now this mass of yarn is going to be called, Some Kind of Fluffy.

Crochet Classes at 3 Kittens Needle Arts in St. Paul
The crochet class schedule is posted on my side bar, check it out. I’d love to see some of you in a class or two. 3 Kittens is an awesome yarn shop, super selection with an expert staff and fantastic owners. Did I mention the porch out front and a coffee shop a few doors down?

"Speaking Engagement" at a local church
In January 2008, I will be speaking at a local church group about crochet and my involvement in Warm Up America. We are going to make 7” x 9” squares so we can assemble an American Flag Afghan to donate to the VA hospital in Minneapolis. I’ll post more about this!

I really love the modern shape of this sweater! Once the cold weather hits this will be put to good use!

Tha jacket is cute and you could pull it off, however me-I would look like "some kind of fluffy in it"-LOL.

I wanna see the belt-silly I know, but I've been wanting to make myself a belt and need some ideas!

Yup, it's some kind of cool alright! I'm with ya on the summer crochet thing, too hot. That's why I dabbled in sewing. For now, the granny squares are enough. :o)

Hi Pam. That jacket is so cute. At least you can wear it in the fall or winter because it's done and ready to be worn.

The jacket looks so yummy and warm! It'll be great for when the temps start dipping! Great job!

Thanks everyone for the nice comments!

I'm holding the front together with a crochet hook, I thought that was an appropriate front closure. I saw the famous designer Gwen Blakley Kinsler do that with a shawl and I LOVED it!
