Yesterday I went to Atlantic City. I didn't win anything but I didn't loose any money either. Basically I broke even. I had a good time though. Friends from Maryland came up and went with me. The trip was a fund raiser for an upcoming family reunion. This morning I picked up the cardigan and finished it. This really was an easy project that can be completed in about two hours.
Note: edited to add the issue of Simply Creative Crochet 2005 that the pattern was in:

Anyway after I finished the tote bag I picked up the jazzy boucle cardigan that I'm working on for the Olympic CAL. It's coming along nicely.

I decided to participate in the 2006 Olympic Crochet Along. I picked a project I've been wanting to do - the Jazzy Boucle Cardigan from Simply Creative Crochet. The CAL began on Friday, February 10. I haven't started yet, I'm currently testing a pattern for a fellow hooker. I plan to start the jacket as soon as I'm done with the testing.
Pattern calls for Lion Boucle but I'm using Bernat Boucle with the body in a mauve color and cream trim.
I have been holding onto a gift certificate from The Rag Shop that one of my sons gave me for Christmas. Yesterday the Rag Shop had 30% off the entire purchase. My gift certificate was enough to get 13 skeins of the Lion Suede which I love. So.. more yarn added to the stash.
