This pattern does not work!! If anyone wants to take a look and tell me what they think...maybe it's just that the photo blurry, but it really wasn't working out the way I imagined it (the shell increases at the beginning) so I think I'm going to try and invent a knit version.

In other news, this is the cutest thing I have ever seen (besides Lindsey Buckingham pretending to be an elephant and chasing Stevie Nicks accross the stage....). It is cute enough to bare children. There's a free pattern for it at

I joined a crochetalong over at Craftster to make Molly Weasley's sleaves from Chamber of Secrets. It's my first CAL and I think everyone's results are going to be amazing 'cause they can't help but be different. I think some people are making a sweater but I think Ill just make the sleaves and then crochet them together to form a shrug. They sort of remind me of the Peter Maxx hat I made ages ago w/ the *ahem* inverted bobbles.

Would it be sacreligous to use knitting in the shrug too? I think that's the most exciting thing going on in crochet right now; combining the two -crochet for stability and structure, knitting for shaping and drape. There are some neat attempts at it in the latest issue of Easy Crochet (gak! I know!). Let's all hope Debbie Stoller doesn't cotton on. (Oh yes I did. lol)

Ooh, neat sleeves - can't wait to see your version. I thinking knitting for drape is a great idea.
Oh, for my Sophie purse - I used Cascade bought from Tangled Skeins, 1 skein (about $10 or less I think). Felted like a dream...

Took a closer look at the sweater on crafster - the body of it is definitely knitted. It looks like a half circle for the sleeve cap, then round and round until the belled cuffs. Very intriguing. A combo of knit and crochet would be cool (maybe knitted lace to pair with the crochet parts? "Cozy" from knitty is a nice structured stitch that might look cool with the crochet...)
