WANTED:

Help! I am in need of a sweater pattern. Unfortunately, I don’t have a picture to show you what exactly I’m looking for…What I need is a dressy type of sweater, as opposed to a cardigan/hayride type :S; and not too long or too loose, though I suppose I could edit those aspects myself…I spent all afternoon yesterday online trying to find a decent pattern for free but only succeeded in frustrating myself. 😛 If you guys can help me find some good sweater patterns by my lean description, I would be very grateful! 🙂

Oh no!

My apologies for not having posted in SO long…I haven’t been crocheting much since the weather’s been nice and I’ve been busy. But on Thursday, I decided to get out my table runner and work on it a little. To my dismay, I discovered that this:

…had melted through a pocket in my crochet bag onto this…
…leaving this:
A yellow spot! I was upset initially, but then I decided that I’d just finish the project anyhow and ask for advice on how to get hard yellow candy out of your #20 cotton thread table runner. Do any of you have any suggestions of soaps to use or tried-and-true procedures to do?

The spot is about one inch by one inch–not big at all.

I would appreciate any help I can get!!! Thanks!
