National Crochet Month

I'm not sure which nation is having this, but over on Ravelry we are playing a little freeform game. We are given a random number generator (ie dice, cards, telephone number) to determine the number of stitches worked, and we are given the stitch. Its the first time doing this type of freeform or scrumbling. I rather enjoy it. Though my 'thingy' isn't a thing of beauty it sure is interesting.

By the way, my camera has broken again. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr! I'm getting angry now. I think I'll demand a replacement this time.

March's Sweater

Is Juliet from Zephyr style. This is a very simple top down cardi thats offered in 2 versions. The first one is a cropped cardi thats knit in garter to the underarms, then the lace pattern starts. The second version is longer, the garter is knit to under the boobs and the lace is continued until about 2 inches below the hips. I didn't think the cropped version would suit me and I didn't really like the longer version...I ended my lace at the hips. I also knit a large size up top and a medium in the lace. Fellow ravelers had complained that this was too flared.
