Good Afternoon Everyone,

Teaching still is the best part of my job. I just love teaching both knitting and crochet classes and have been doing so for a lot of years.  The look on the faces of students when they "get it" is priceless.  I am grateful that I will have another opportunity to teach at the CGOA conference in Portland, OR this July. 

Nothing makes a teacher happier than having happy students. When one writes and shares some of the things that they make, that is even more rewarding.  Loren, who took my Entrelac Crochet class quite a few years ago, has gone on to such great lengths with this method. I have lost track of just how many blankets that she has made for her family and friends, but her latest creation just blew me away. Wow Loren, this is just beautiful and clearly made with love. I am so proud of you. Thanks for sharing.

Here's what Loren writes (makes my heart sing).

Hi Margaret 
Attached is a picture of my latest entrelac blanket.   This was SO MUCH FUN!  Each color was stitched individually.  Big job, but worth it. 
I can't thank you enough for all your help.

I know this is not, perhaps, the correct place to ask this, but I did not find an e-mail address and I cannot contact the publishers of your book to ask.

I have come across a very old book of yours from 1981 (Weekend Crochet Projects). I remember some of the items of clothing which my Mother made from this book.

I would like to make one of the sweaters in the book for my Grandson, but cannot find the "pattern stitch".

The sweater is "Boy's Rugged Pullover" on page 70. For the Back, after the sideways crochet rib and picking up sc along the long side for the beginning of the back, it says "Work in pattern stitch for 10 1/2 inches from the beginning".

It was the look of this jumper which attracted me to the pattern, but I cannot find the pattern stitch to be used. Were any errata published? Or do you have a copy of the pattern to let me know what the pattern stitch actually is?

I look forward to hearing back from you on this.
