If you're a fan of the TV show "Ghost Whisperer", you might have seen the beautiful, long, white sweater "Melinda" wore on an episode back in Feb. As soon as the show was over, I set to work designing a replica from memory. This sweater is made with a cotton/teri yarn and is so soft and snuggly. I wrote the pattern and I'm selling it for $7. E-mail me if you're interested in buying a copy of the pattern. email@example.com

Okay, here's the finished sweater. I like the way it looks, but it's too big on me. So I'm going to sell this one on my website and make me another one. I just put one large button at the top. It has Latin? words on it & an image like a family crest, so I thought it was perfect for this sweater. I've worked hard on this project and I think I came pretty close. What do you think? (my camera makes the colors on my sweater look brighter than they really are) E-mail me for info on ordering a custom made sweater or the pattern. firstname.lastname@example.org More pics on my site at www.crochetcabin.bravehost.com

Molly Weasley Sweater
Well, my Weasley sweater is coming along nicely. Almost done. Here it is - what I have so far. My camera makes the colors look brighter than they actually are. They are more like the original in the movie. It's been fun working on this design. It's my version of the sweater the character Molly Weasley wears in the Harry Potter movie, "Chamber of Secrets". I bought the DVD after reading several posts on Crochetville, an internet group I belong to. The scene is in Chapter 4, and I re-played it a dozen times, paused it and studied it, then set to work. In the movie, Mrs. Weasely is wearing a sleeveless smock-type apron over the sweater, so the body of the sweater can't be seen, except at the neckline. But it's the sleeves that really make this sweater interesting. The colors are fantastic, and I tried to mimic the pattern as best I could. I have it all written in long hand, and plan to get it written properly on the computer this week. I will post more pics of the finished sweater later this week.
