I have been chatting with a new friend, Amie of NexStitch patterns, about crochet and knitting and how they relate to my buttons. I wanted to share her great website with you all. She has these great PDF patterns for all sorts of neat ponchos, purses, shawls, and even bikinis! I love the sweetpea shawl shown above...I would so wear that in a brown or greeny color...I really like the pattern of the crochet. Seeing things like this make me want to learn to work with yarn!
