Item Number Title/Price Description

GRANNY'S DELIGHT AFGHANS ($2.50) 9 patterns that use the basic granny square pattern in a variety of ways: Mini Patch Quilt Granny (join as you go!), Granny Melody, All Star Granny, Colorful Granny, Classic Granny, Granny's Choice, Nine-Patch Granny, Picture Perfect, Irish Chain Granny. All use worsted weight yarns.

AFGHAN MEDLEY TO KNIT ($2.50) 4 designs are knit in one color to let the pattern shine: Harmony, Golden Tone, Sweet Medley, and Blue Rhapsody. 1 design has contrasting color hearts worked in: Heart Song. All use worsted weight yarn.

FLORAL AFGHANS ($2.50) I think all 5 of these were previously published by LA, but it's still a very nice set of flower afghans: Pansies and Lace, Flower Patch, Cottage Rose, Garden Fresh, and Flower Garden afghans. All are done in blocks and all use worsted weight yarn.

DELIGHTFUL DOILIES ($2.50) 6 doilies from LA publications, in different styles: Lacy Delight (20"), Captivating Delight (16"), Pinwheel Delight (13"), Heavenly Delight (18"), Pineapple Delight (17-3/4"), and Rose Delight (21"x16-1/2" oval). I plan to make the last one (originally published in Crochet with Heart), because I love flower doilies. All made in size 10 cotton.

RAINBOW WRAPS FOR BABY ($2.50) Five baby blankets to cuddle your little one Rainbow Ruffles features lacy white squares with a different pastel ruffle added to each, Rainbow Showers has stripes in white and pastels, Rainbow Blocks has pastel diamonds set with white and put together in a "tumbling blocks" pattern, Rainbow Mist has white and pastel stripes with an interesting raised stitch pattern, and Pastel Raindrops uses white and pastels to look like ribbons running through the blanket. All patterns use either sport or worsted weight yarns.

KITCHEN DECOR ($2.50) A great selection of 19 projects for the kitchen: Fashionable Kitchen Serving Set (potholder and hot pad), Stylish Kitchen Trio (3 dishcloths), Classic Kitchen Potholders (3 styles), Country Garden Kitchen Collection (towel and cherry, melon, and strawberry potholders), Delightful Kitchen Duo (dishcloth and dishtowel), Quick and Easy Kitchen Helpers (dishcloth and hot pad), and Cozy Kitchen Companions (dishcloth and potholder). Made with sport or worsted weight yarn.

BABY LAYETTES AND AFGHANS ($3.50) 10 designs: Sweet Dreams Afghans (beautiful, heirloom quality!), Pretty Puffs Afghan, Lacy-Soft Layette (9 to 12 month sacque, bonnet, slippers, and bonnet, plus shawl), and Sweet and Soft Layette (3 month size sacque, bonnet, and booties, plus blanket). Made with baby or sport weight yarn.

SCRAP WRAPS ($3.50) 10 designs: "Scrap" is a good word here, because although all these patterns use a fair amount of black (or your choice of background color) to offset the 15 or so colors used in each afghan most of these take very little of any one color and different dye lots certainly wouldn't be noticed! The 5 patterns are Granny's Favorite (join-as-you-go, hooray!), Graceful Appeal (shell stripes), Bold Color Bands (stripes), Cheerful Checks (checkerboard effect stripes), and Yo-Yo Fantasy (one-row motifs crocheted together with black - no sewing together!). All are made with worsted weight yarn.

QUICK & EASY Q-HOOK AFGHANS ($3.50) 10 designs: A nice selection of 7 patterns using all worked with 2 strands held together and a Q hook, although I wouldn't consider anything I have to sew together "quick & easy". But most of these are one-piece! Comforting uses ecru and variegated in a nice all-over pattern, Breezy uses one color and post stitches for a windowpane effect, Romance is flower motifs in your choice of colors, Zippy uses 3 shades of the same color in a ripple pattern, Simplicity has blocks (but only 12!) in two-color stripes, Daydream has panels in one color, and Refreshing is a stripe in 3 colors with long stitches for interest. All are made using worsted weight yarn.

LI'L SWEETHEART BABY AFGHANS ($2.50) Five patterns for the new baby Lovable has popcorn hearts in solid color, Soft Hearts is panels with hearts worked in, Beribboned "Fan-cy" is a shell pattern in one color, Pretty Puffs is join-as-you-go motifs with a puff stitch border, and Twinkle, Twinkle has motifs joined into strips and then joined with a very lacy pattern. All are made with sport or worsted weight yarn.
