Subject: Dog Sweater Pattern

Can some one tell me where to find this free pattern?
Giget's Pink Ruffled Dog Sweater.
I have looked all over the site and I cannot find the directions for the original pattern.



Giget's owner made her sweater
using our basic dog sweater pattern.

This link is for the extra embellishments she added:

Hope this helps.

"True friendship is like sound health;
the value of it is seldom known until it is lost.
~~ Charles Caleb Colton ~~



A new commandment I give unto you, that ye love one another; even as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another.

John 13:34-35


Thou shalt not take vengeance, nor bear any grudge against the children of thy people; but thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself: I am Jehovah.

Leviticus 19:18


If ye love me, ye will keep my commandments.

John 14:15

If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing. Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

1 Corinthians 13:3-8



This quote is from Our Daily Bread - October, 2011 Issue

Be careful the environment you choose, for it will
shape you; be careful the friends you choose, for
you will become like them.  - W. Clement Stone

"For where two or three have gathered
together in My name, there I am in their midst."
Matthew 18:20

If you have trouble with the yarn splitting when you are making a stitch, try turning the pointed part of your crochet hook down toward the base of the stitch. This should make the stitch go a bit smoother and prevent the yarn from splitting.






Scrap Yarn Ideas ... do you have number 90?

89. I braid lengths of scrap yarn into toys for my cats. I make braids of different lengths and knot four or five together, my cats love to chase and chew on these and the braids don't tangle.

where do U fine the best quality of yarns?(is yarns a word?) lol

Ngstillstanding Goggins

<< reply >>

Some of the nicest yarns will be found in the specialty yarn shops... of which we have none in my area :( I visited a yarn shop in Lexington, KY once that carried many varieties of yarn: hand painted, hand-spun, any fiber you could ask for. These yarns are very expensive but I'm sure well worth the prices. I tend to purchase many of the yarns I use in department stores. Of the department store yarns, I like Red Heart Super Saver, Bernat Baby Coordinates, Simply Soft and Peaches & Creme.


Subject: Open_Edge_Dishcloth

I am a new crocheter and I can't do the reverse single crochet. Would it work out okay if I just do a single crochet stitch instead?

<< reply >>

A regular single crochet stitch would be fine.

However, the Reverse Single Crochet stitch is easy.
The Reverse Single is exactly like a regular single crochet...
only you work into the stitch to the right of your hook
instead of the stitch to the left of the hook.

Our daughter is looking for a pattern for a cursive lower case "h".
I told her to try and "l" and add part of an "n" I would sure be her
"hero" if I could find one quickly for her. I would of course give you the credit.
But she could say "my mom always knows where to look" :-)

She's looking for an aplique type, like Laverne wore on Lavern and Shirley.

Thank you for your prayers and the cool patterns.

in Christ
Annette Thivierge

<< reply >>

I haven’t been able to locate a cursive lower case “h”... guess
I should add that to my future design list.

This lady has lower case alphabet applique patterns for sale and
you might be able to use the ”y” upside down for a cursive “h”:

Hello there, my name is meaghan and ive been looking for a pattern for viking horns and i cannot find them anywhere! if you could possibly help me out that would be making a Minnesota Vikings hat for my Grandma and would really appreciate the help!

RE: Baby_Beanie

I just want to thank you for the free baby patterns. i really appreciate it so much .
Sincerely, mary

Subject: Can_Cozy

I have been trying to make the ca cozy you shared a pattern for and am at a stand still. I have completed the bottom of the holder and cannon figure out what Is meant by dec in the directions for round 4. It says *sc in bl only of the next st. Sc dec, in back loops only,……. Thank you for your help.

<< reply >>

RND 4: * Sc in bl only of next st. Sc dec, in back loops only, over next 2 sts. Rep from * around. Join with sl st in 1st sc. Ch 1, do not turn. (32 sts.)

For Round 4 you do the following:
Single crochet in the back loop only of the next stitch.

Work a single crochet decrease, still working in the back loops only, over the next two stitches.

To work the Single Crochet Decrease in the back loops...
Insert the hook into the back loop only of the next stitch , draw up a loop (2 loops on the hook).
Insert the hook into the back loop only of the next stitch, draw up a loop (3 loops on the hook).
Yarn over and draw through all 3 loops.

Now repeat from the asterisk ( * ) around.
Join with a slip stitch in the first single crochet on that round.
Chain 1, do not turn.
You should have 32 stitches when you finish Round 4.

Enjoy the pattern.

This book is a wonderful addition to any crochet library.
I've had numerous requests over the years of what to crochet for boys.
Crobots are definitely the answer!
This 96-page book is filled with numerous types of Crobot patterns as well as well-illustrated instructions for the
crochet stitches, assembly stitches and other embellishments used in the patterns.
The patterns are well written, some of the book is written in a small font but the pictures are wonderful. NOTE: This book comes to you with a safety warning regarding the small parts used in the patterns.
Therefore, please use your own discretion as to the age of the child you intend the gift for.

I have to tell you about this new book.'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 crochet patterns.
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.

"Laughter is an instant vacation." - Milton Berle
~ ~ ~ ~ ~

A lady came to the hospital to visit a friend. She had not been in a
hospital for several years and felt very ignorant about all the new

A technician followed her onto the elevator, wheeling a large,
intimidating looking machine with tubes and wires and dials.

"Boy, would I hate to be hooked up to that thing," she said.

"So would I," replied the technician. "It's a floor-cleaning machine."

Mrs. Smith, I ain’t got no crayons.

Young man, you mean, I don’t have any crayons.
You don’t have any crayons.
We don’t have any crayons.
They don’t have any crayons.
Do you see what I’m getting at?

I think so. What happened to all the crayons?

An old nun, who was living in a convent next to a construction site was appalled at the coarse
language of the workers, and decided to spend some time with them to correct their ways.
She decided she would take her lunch, sit with the workers, and talk with them about Jesus.
She put her sandwich in a brown bag, and walked over to the spot where the men were eating.

Sporting a big smile, she walked up to the group and asked,"Do you men know Jesus?"
They shook their heads, and looked at each other, very confused. One of the workers looked up into the steel works and yelled out, "Anybody up there know Jesus?"

One of the steelworkers yelled down, "Why?"

The worker yelled back, "Cause his wife's here, with his lunch."

A couple of years ago when I was a CNA on a telemetry floor, several of us were sitting around the nurses' station just winding down the shift.

We were sitting next to the telemetry monitors when a patient rang in and on speaker we heard him say in a loud and pitiful voice, "Can you send my nurse in. I'm having pain!"

To that the monitor tech inquired, "Where are you having pain?"

The patient replied in all seriousness, "In Room 221"

My husband and I attended a bridal fair trying to drum up work for his fledgling wedding photography business. One vendor assumed we were engaged and asked when the big day

"Oh, we've been married ten years," I said.

"Really?" she asked, "But you look so happy."

Unfortunately, getting a new passport required a new photo. As I handed my ten-year-old passport and the new picture to the clerk, I sighed. "I like the original better," I told her.

"Trust me," she said. "Ten years from now, you'll like this one."

A American family took their first-grader on a car trip to Canada.
To help pass the time, the boy practiced his new reading skills by
calling out road signs. He fell asleep just before they entered

When he awoke, he looked out his window at the highway signs - now in French - and said in a worried tone, "I think I forgot how to read while I was asleep."

Question: What is the best way to describe retirement?
Answer: The never ending Coffee Break.

One of our kindergarten students decided to see what would happen if he poked a pencil into his ear, and sure enough, the eraser end popped off and lodged in his ear.

During the lengthy removal process, I was chatting with him to keep him still and asked, "Didn't your mother ever tell you to never put anything smaller than your elbow in your ear?"

"Nope!" he replied. "My mom always says that with me, what goes in one ear always comes out the other!"

The last time I visited my grandmother in the retirement home, she kept calling me "Major". She suffers from dementia and I thought that she was going through one of her moods.

When I asked her why she was calling me Major, she said, "Today, sweetie, you're being a major pain."

A Marine on a Navy ship in the Mediterranean, I went into the barber shop for the first time, and my attention quickly focused on the unique cutting style of the barber. He started at the top of the head and cut down the sides.

I asked him where he had learned to cut hair.

"Well, sir," he responded in a drawl, "when they asked who knew how, I told them I'd never cut hair but I used to shear sheep."

Guards escorted a handcuffed prisoner into the courtroom where I stood as the court deputy.

"Is this a tough judge?" the prisoner asked.

"Yes," the bailiff said. "A tough but fair judge."

"Yeah? How tough?"

"The toughest judge since Pontius Pilate," the bailiff replied.

"I don't know him," said the prisoner. "I'm not from around here."
