It's too hot to wear a bathrobe in bed. Actually I REALLY liked the second one. Is it likely you would share the ruffle pattern and the second jacket pattern? If not, please tell me where you got the pattern and I will get to the library on one of my good days! If you will share, please PM me for the e-mail address. Also, I am allergic to wool, so can your mmmm be substituted for something else? What would you recommend? Thanks so much.
The Petite Bell Ruffle is found in Nicki Epstein's book called Knitting On the Edge...currently still available. (Not out of print yet.) HERE
is a link for it at KNITPICKS. It is featured in the 2nd row of books.
I highly recommend this book. It has been so useful! I am not much of a designer, but I do like to tweak my edgings sometimes! That is about all I do in the "creativity" department! Mostly, I just follow the directions as set forth by the designers.
Knitting On the Edge
at Amazon.com has reduced prices available.
And finally, I found the pattern booklet for you!!!! Click HERE
to visit the Dreamweaversyarns.com website. They even show the patterns inside! It is the Spring-Summer 2007 leaflet. ($14.99) Lots of cute patterns. I had a hard time deciding between 3 designs that look "bed jacket friendly"!
Let me know what you decide to do. Oh, BTW...if you are allergic to wool...why not get a loverly acrylic!? There are many really soft, luscious acrylic choices! Ya gotta do what ya gotta do!
I have a favorite soft acrylic, but I can't think what the name of it is. I know it IS NOT Red Heart. Maybe Caron's.
