Wow! What a fun thing to crochet and what spectacular results! I made my cozy in pink & white and it is pretty and frilly, not to mention it works like a charm! My iced coffee stayed so cold that it nearly turned to a slushy and my hand didn't freeze as usual!
I can't thank you enough for the pattern! Kind regards, Geneva
Hi,I just have a few questions.First Id like to ask you when it says ex: 1 MC, an then 3 CC I understand that means the white an the color but is that all single crochet,it doesn't say what stitch? Second of all when your going from white to color or vies versa do you incorporate the next color or do you actually have to fasten off an tie off the next color because it seems to me like you would have alot of loose ends to sew in if you fasten off each time.It's a beautiful pattern an Id like to try an make it. Thank You Theresa

The "row count" patterns
are all worked in single crochet stitches.
The following is in the materials section:
"Pattern specifies how many single crochet stitches to work for each color."
I carry my unused color
along the row and drop it at the point where I will need it again on the way
I never cut the yarn until the end.
Take a look at this page:
for info on graphs and charts.
I hope you enjoy the pattern.
words can be short and easy to speak, but their echoes are truly endless.

I have to tell you about this new book.
SweaterBabe.com's Fabulous & Flirty Crochet
I'm so happy to have it in my crochet library.
Katherine Lee has an eye for style and a definite knack for creating beautiful
I was really happy with the large colorful project photos.
There's something for everyone!
The aspect of Fabulous and Flirty Crochet that stood out to me was the section on the yarns used in the patterns.
One page shows "actual size" photos of the yarns which makes it super easy to substitute other yarns if you want to.
For those who stay strictly to the recommended yarn in a pattern Katherine has included a yarn resource list.
The projects are very fashionable and perfect for gift giving... though I'm sure you'll have to make something for yourself :o)
I can't wait to try the Flirty Skirt and the Ruffled Strap Tank.

First I had to work late. Then I discovered that I'd locked my keys in the car. But the last straw was learning that roadside service couldn't get a locksmith to me for at least two hours. Finally the guy showed, looking exhausted.
As he struggled with my door, I joked, "Do those Slim Jim tools come in purse-size?" "Yeah," he muttered. "They're called keys."
Roger came to Sunday School late. His teacher knew that he was usually very prompt and asked him if anything was wrong.
The boy replied no, nothing was wrong, that he was going fishing but his dad told him that he needed to go to church.
The teacher was very impressed and asked Roger if his dad had explained to him why it was more important to go to church than to go fishing.?
"Yes he did. Dad said he didn't have enough bait for both of us."
woman was bragging about her son, a college student: "He's so brilliant! Every time we get a letter from him we have to go to the dictionary."
"You're lucky," her friend said. "Every time we get a letter from ours, we have to go to the bank."
A lady went to a pet shop. "I'd like to buy two yellow canaries," she told the owner.
"We don't have any canaries, but we have these," the owner said, as he showed the lady some pale green parakeets.
"That's not what I'm looking for," the lady stated. But the pet store owner refused to give up.
He said, "Just think of them as yellow canaries that aren't quite ripe yet."
In the frozen foods department
of our local grocery store, I noticed a man shopping with his son.
As I walked by, he checked something off his list, and I heard him whisper conspiratorially to the child;
"You know, if we really mess this up, we'll never have to do it again."
A lawyer's dog, running about unleashed, beelines for a butcher shop and steals a roast. Butcher goes to lawyer's office and asks, "If a dog running unleashed steals a piece of meat from my store, do I have a right to demand payment for the meat from the dog's owner?"
The lawyer answers, "Absolutely."
"Then you owe me $8.50. Your dog was loose and stole a roast from me today."
The lawyer, without a word, writes the butcher a check for $8.50.
Several days later, the
butcher opens the mail and finds an envelope from the lawyer:
$50 due for a consultation.
A fellow was walking along a country road when he came upon a farmer working in his field. The man called out to the farmer, "How long will it take me to get to the next town?"
The farmer didn't answer. The guy waited a bit and then started walking again.
After the man had gone about a hundred yards, the farmer yelled out, "About 20 minutes."
"Thank you. But why didn't you tell me that when I asked you?"
"Didn't know how fast you could walk."
One day, at the dry-cleaning
shop of a local air force base, I overheard a young airman describe in great
detail how he wanted his uniform cleaned and pressed. When he finished, the
counter clerk asked,
"Are you getting an award, or do you have an important military function to attend?"
"Nothing like that," the airman said.
"I'm going home on leave, and my little brother is taking me to his second-grade class for show-and-tell."
My husband, a forester, often has to consult property owners to determine boundary lines. Walking up a dirt road to question one such individual, he encountered signs that read: "No Trespassing," "Beware of Dog," and "Keep Out...This Means You!"
Finally arriving at the door, he talked with the congenial, cooperative landowner. When my husband was ready to leave, the man said to him, "Come and see me again sometime. I don't get many visitors up this way."
A crew of highway maintenance workers were sent to repair some road signs that vandals had knocked down in a forested area. The first one they put back up was a symbol warning of a deer crossing the road.
As they moved down the road to repair the next sign, one member of the crew looked back and spotted a deer running across the highway. She turned to a co-worker and said, "I wonder how long he's been waiting to cross."
Trying to explain to our five-year-old daughter how much computers had changed, my husband pointed to our brand-new personal computer and told her that when he was in college, a computer with the same amount of power would have been the size of a house.
Wide-eyed, our daughter asked, "How big was the mouse?"
My brother and I arrived at boot camp together. On the first morning, our unit was dragged out of bed by our drill sergeant and made to assemble outside.
"My name's Sergeant Jackson,"
"Is there anyone here who thinks he can whip me?"
My six-foot-three, 280-pound
brother raised his hand and said,
"Yes, sir, I do."
Our sergeant grabbed him
by the arm and led him out in front of the group.
"Men," he said, "this is my new assistant.
Now, is there anyone here who thinks he can whip both of us?"
