Marie, for some reason the Alden always intimidated me -- what an interesting thing to say about crochet. Now I am going to have to look through it :D

It's the Slip Stitch Sampler Throw. There is a link to it on my Ravelry projects page. I think you will be seeing a lot of it for a long time at our Thursday night meetings.

But that's a good effect of a one-bedroom apartment. People fill their garages and basements to the rafters with stuff they should recycle, give away or throw out. Not a good thing.

Michelle, this is my first sparkly batt. Oh wait, it's the second, but I didn't like the coarse strips that made the first one sparkly. I really enjoy the sparkly parts of this one.

Laritza, thanks for the encouragement to ply it without any intermediate "unspinning." Since it is a highly twisted single skein, I think I will try chain plying it.

Martha, a huge milestone for you and your son, and an exciting one. Best of luck with his applications. Roberta

Thanks Kirsten! I wasn't sure since the instructions for the row in which you place the marker mention the "outlined pattern repeat," which I thought referenced the lace pattern. Is it ok if I post your answer on Ravelry Knittylove, where I originally posted my question about the repeats?

One more question about Que Sera, this time about the Cluster 3 -- I assume we slip the stitches as if to knit, right? And at the end, we purl each one of the three stitches individually?

I fell in love with Que Sera, but posted the following question on the Knittylove forum on Ravelry. I am a little confused by the instructions for the lower band. After casting on, knitting in Double Moss stitch, and knitting the first buttonhole row, the instructions say: Next Row WS: Work 6 sts in pattern, place marker, work in pattern to last 6 sts (outlined pattern repeat will be worked 1112, 14, 15, 16, 18, 19 times), place marker, work last 6 sts in pattern. From then on, it says, you work the lower body in the lace pattern. But… what pattern am I working on the bands? The only pattern I see is the pattern for the lace. Is that used on the bands as well? Or do they just mean that the body lace pattern starts after the first buttonhole row? Isn't that a wrong side row? Can you clarify this?

Thanks Kim! I was going to call you tonight to ask, LOL. I just have so much beautiful sock yarn it is hard to choose.
