Making the Grade

Pardon the pun! I am in the process of rewriting my Pineapple Yoke Pullover pattern and calculating all the changes necessary for sizes small through 3X, so it's amazing that I haven't pulled all my hair out and gone mad.

Grading and revising are not my favorite things, nor are they numbered among my accomplishments. However, this revision has provided an opportunity to make this a better pattern, and I hope everyone likes the new improved version. If all goes as planned, the pattern should be available for purchase in two or three weeks.

My Newest Design

I've gotten really behind in my designing and pattern writing progress, due to illness and some crazy schedules, but at last I've finished my newest design, the Shades of Autumn Shawl.

I chose to crochet my model in colors that remind me of fall leaves and cool weather, but the shawl would look great in other color combinations--- even other yarn weights.
