I love the movie You've Got Mail--especially the part where Kathleen Kelly is describing a picture of her and her "enchanting" mother when she was a child. "We're twirling," she says. I used to do that a lot with my daughter when she was little. So, in honor of those wonderful memories...the Let's Twirl Rug and Blanket! It details how to make a wonderful squishy, swirly rug for a bath, entry, kid's room, nursery or kitchen and also how to make a soft and cozy blanket for baby. If you want something larger for an afghan or bed, this is an easily adaptable pattern. It is also perfect for taking with you as you make the motifs, joining them later with a final round. This simple, yet detailed, 12 page pattern includes: -3 page printable pattern -Clear detailed instructions in standard American crochet terms -Join-as-you-go instructions (optional). -Special notes and abbreviations -Placement diagram for color placement of motifs -Blank placement diagram to allow you to design your own color scheme -Photo-tutorial with 25 clear pictures of how to make the twirly motifs as well as how to join them. The rug requires 8 skeins of suggested yarn. The blanket requires 12 skeins of the suggested yarn. Due to the nature of patterns, this pattern may not be returned or exchanged. All sales are final.

Cheerful, Creative, Crocheter and Collector of all things Colorful describes me to a C--er, I mean a T. My sweet, left-handed granny taught me (a righty) to crochet when I was but a youngster. My first project was a hideously long scarf for my dad. It seems I just didn't know when to stop--something my teachers told me in school, too! Although crochet and other craftiness have always been part of my life, I channeled my energy and creativity into teaching Jr. High and High School sciences for many years. When I am not "yarning" (as described by my youngest), I treasure time with my family, friends, running, thrift store shopping, and learning new creative skills.
