I'll send the pattern if anybody wants it. Goes pretty fast too.

Karen, that sounds beautiful. Please do send me the pattern. There are some babies on the way in our family and I need to make something so I'll be ready when they arrive.

Karen,
I made that pattern years ago - I think I made about 3 of them and now that I am back crocheting (since they have new cushion handle hooks that work well with my arthritis) I wanted to do it and could not find the pattern.

If you could PM me about it I would appreciate it!

That will be number 5.....once I finish 1 and 2 of course.

Katie, if it is the same one I did and I am pretty sure it is, it looks like a rainbow and the "star" shape is really beautiful!

It's Mary Maxim's Peaceful Pastels. In case either of you want to buy the kit, they do still have it on their web site even though it's been years and years since I first made it. There's a pic of it too but didn't know if I can post pics from somewhere even with credit given so didn't.

Just to let you know, I had to order the peach yarn on-line when I used the pattern to make others. None of my local stores carried it and I live in a big metropolitan area, although not a "crafty" one.

The last one I made, I was working on it at our booth in a trade show and kept getting compliments from the ladies about it. One of the guys we know though kept making fun of the "little old lady" stuff I was doing. One lady fell in love with it and asked if I could send her the pattern if she gave me her addy. It is so easy to do after you've done a few rows that I just handed her my instructions.

ETA: I e-mailed a PDF to both of you. Let me know if you don't get it.

Karen

Yep, I got it. I love it. I can't wait to start, but I have to get the yarn first. Can't do that until next week. Boo, hiss! That's okay. I'm almost done with my Channel sweater. Just have to make the pockets and sew it together.

i guess because a lot of people that know me and especially my family, think i am to detail oriented. i have a habit, i should kick, of apologizing for that. i am the kind of a person that if i can't do the very best job i can, then i don't want to do it at all. lol

Karen, I want to thank you for sending it so quickly; however, I have to ask if you could send it to me again. I am on two computers right now and it accidentally got deleted on one, and for some reason it didn't download to the other one. I will be more careful this time! Thanks!
