SOCK MONKEYS (4.50) by Valesha Marshell Kirksey.
||These are just
too cute! Benny and Blossom are worked using 2 strands of sport weight
yarn to get the tweed effect (one strand of ecru and one strand of tan); I
suppose you could use worsted weight yarn if you could find a good ecru/tan
tweed color. Also included are patterns for Benny's vest and hat and
Blossom's pinafore, hat, and Mary Jane shoes.

|ELEGANT SHELLS Classic Collection Book 1
($6.00)by Terry Kimbrough
Sorry, discontinued and no stock left.
|Eight beautiful solid color afghans in this collection, all
very lacy and with deep borders. Garden Beauty has shells and posts, with
the same pattern radiating out on the edging; Peachy is a closer shell with
almost a wicker look and an open chain/shell edging. Lavender & Lace has a
close "nested" shell and a ripple shell border; Tea Time has shell granny
squares and an open shell and chain border. Rhapsody has rows of large
shells and a smaller shell border; Tradition is worked in one piece but has
the look of motifs with a shell in the center of each and vintage looking
"hanky" edging. Boudoir alternates plain shells and puff stitch sprays
with the border repeating the puff stitch pattern, and Charming starts off
with a smallish center of shells and lacet rows and has a very wide border,
actually more like 2 borders - the inner one of shells and the outer one
more lacy with cluster stitches. All are made with worsted weight yarn.

|CONTEST FAVORITES MILE-A-MINUTE AFGHANS ($9.95)
||This is a treasure
trove of patterns for mile-a-minute lovers - 30 patterns from Crochet with
Heart's afghan contest. 10 patterns are featured with entire afghan
instructions, and the others are shown with patterns for the strip. I
particularly liked the one that looks like motifs worked separately and
then joined together, but each strip is really worked like you would expect
of a mile-a-minute, round and round! All made using worsted weight yarn.
