One down and granny harem pants to go!

Friday night at 6:30 I finally lit on a pattern to make a lacy cardi to wear to the CGOA conference. Only two weeks to go. Michael's was wonderous in that they decided to have a 4 hour madness sale so I bought the Caron Spa that I have been fondling for a bit. I imagine that after the upcoming trip I will be in love with much more expensive yarns.

At any rate, this was what my cardi looked like at that point in time. I took it with me to the Saturday crochet meeting to work on and apologized for not working on a scarf at the time. By the way, I love these ladies I'm working with!! I am so happy I found them and all because of a last minute decision to go to the conference. I was so worried I wouldn't fit in with them and they have welcomed me with open arms. What fun they are!

At any rate, Saturday and Sunday crocheting and a bit Monday night. I finished the motifs this morning somewhere in the wee hours and tonight I wove in ends. I am hoping to find a nice decorative gigantic button to use on it or one of those off the wall pins. Here's the completed item and I am hoping that I will not regret making this. Hubby commented it would be a hoot if several ladies just "happened" to make the same item in the same color. It would only happen to me!


  1. Beautiful! If any one else made it 'just like yours', it's because it is perfect!

  2. it is gorgeous. I was amazed at how much you had done on Saturday morning!

  3. What a lovely cardi--wear it in good health! Have fun at the conference!
