A Large Custom Order & A Pattern Review

I've been working on a pretty big big order, Four sweaters. I sent her the first one and she loved it. So glad because i'm my own worse critic. It's a crochet pattern by Glenda Bohard-Avila called Gypsy Cardigan. She sells the pattern on Etsy.
 Gypsy Cardigan 

The cardigan is made with an open work pattern of treble crochet stitches, and comes with directions for different sizes. The first one i made (shown) was made with purple acrylic yarn called 0356 Amethyst by Red Heart. The pattern said you can use either acrylic or cotton. I'm now making the second one using a cotton yarn- Peaches & Creme Ecru. I bought all the store had, and figured i could go on line to get more, but i haven't found any. It only came in small skeins of 2.5 oz. I would have preferred to get it by the cone so less joining. I tried searching on line, but the few i found where expensive, like $8. and i only paid $1.77 in Walmart. I may have to be creative here with a color close enough and work it in the trim or something if i run short.

The only thing is although it's a fairly easy pattern, it's a lot of counting so it's not one of those patterns you can sit in front of the t.v. with. I foolishly though so and had to frog about two hours work out of the current sweater. Has increases at the ends.

Still Crocheting For My Animals

I'm only 15 sales from reaching 2500. Who wants to help me make my goal this month?

Crocheting for my animals. Basically the money i make selling my crochet helps pay for  the care of my animals. This is Karina. My newly adopted Chihuahua dog. Going to the vets this month to get all up to date, and spayed soon after.

A New Member of The Family

May i introduce Karina the Chihuahua.

I am fostering her pups and the owners told me i could have pick of the litter in return. They had intended on getting her spayed , but didn't get it done in time. So i decided i wanted her. They agreed. This way i'll make sure she doesn't have any more. She's already attached herself to me. I have her daughter from the first liter also. She's about 3 years old.
