Cross

Cross by James Patterson


     This is the first Alex Cross series book that I found to be a bit to much for me, great action, lots of suspense but the psychopath was just too sick in this book.


I love reading and have been reading as far back as I can remember. When I moved to this home several years ago, I set myself u[ a library and it's loaded with great books to read.  With 6 bookcases, I think I'll be busy reading for a long time.

Cut two pieces of yarn 10 inches long, and tie at top of tassel, (do not cut this yarn at top of tassel, you'll need it to tie it to the chain) remove tassel from cardboard.

Cut bottom of tassel even, and tie one tassel to each end of chain, work threads into tassel or chain. Make second tassel. Slip last chain closest to tassel on each side of dowel for hanging.

The Think Green Bag


The Think Green Bag by       Jason J Wurst

I like machine knitting, and this pattern is just one of the many knitting machine reviews you will find on this blog, for more click here:
http://ninasatmyhouse.blogspot.com/search/label/Knitting%20Machine%20Book%20reviews

  $6.00.6 pages. For the standard and mid-gauge machines, no ribber needed. Great for the beginner! Pattern has 2 bags with lots of options, it says cotton but if you used acrylic the bags would last a long time. Has bonus nightgown pattern! Easy to follow instructions.

Amy's Hi-Low Crochet Scarf

Amy's Hi-Low Crochet Scarf@2004  By N.L. Banks

Another pattern for you, this time its a scarf I made for my daughter Amy.   It is easy to crochet, so I hope you like it. I made this using worsted weight yarn, but if you use a thicker yarn, it will be warmer, wider and longer.

 

Materials:
J hook
2 skeins 100% Acrylic yarn in any color (7 oz). A light color will show the
stitches better. I used a Fisherman color, (cream)   

With the J hook, chain 26.

Row 1: Sl st in 2nd ch from hook and in each of next 4 ch, * 1 hdc in each of next 5 ch, Slip st in each of next 5 ch; rep from * to end, Ch 1, turn.

Note: Work all following rows thru back loops only.

Row 2: Work Slip st over each Slip st, hdc over each hdc. Ch 2, turn.

Row 3: Work hdc over each Slip st, sl st over each hdc. Ch 2, turn.

Row 4: Work hdc over each hdc, slip st over each Slip st, ending ch 1, turn.

Row 5: Work sl st over each hdc,  hdc over each slip st, Ch 1, turn.

Row 6: Work slip st over each slip st, hdc over each hdc. Ch 2, turn.

Repeat last 4 rows for pattern. Work, following pattern until you have
no yarn left. This will make a nice long scarf.
