Lucky for me the exact stuff I was looking for was in the discount corner at the local yarn shop. Still meant $5 dollars for 50gms but hay for raspberry coloured 100% merino wool who's complaining! I mixed up two patterns to come up with this one. Unfortunately I printed out the patterns long ago and have forgotten the sites I got them from so I cannot share them.
Here's a photo of the little gem!
It's been finished off with the cutest of pink mother-of-pear buttons. I am also planing to make a beanie to go with the cardigan. I hope it will keep her warm this winter. It will be too small for the following winter.

Sue over at Sue's Favourite Things began a project at the beginning of the year to create blankets for the elderly. She asked if fellow crocheter’s might help in her project by contributing a square or two.
In Sue’s words:-
I hope you can help. If everyone could just send one square I would be most grateful. I know postage is expensive.
For those who would like information
6" x 6" - (15cms x 15cms)
Knitted or Crocheted
Acrylic I think would be better (if possible) don't worry if you haven't got Acrylic.
Any design, any colour. (Basic Granny Square or more involved up to you!)
Just odd bits of wool/yarn you have left over from projects. I don't want it to cost any one
No panic, no rush, no deadline. This is something I want to be doing all year.
The project has gone on to be a real huge success but she still needs more squares. If you are able and willing to help please pop over to her blog.
You can also email her at firstname.lastname@example.org
The next issue of Inside Crochet, will also be covering Sue’s project, available in the UK in early June, 2010.
Below are more pictures of the beautiful blankets that have been created by a wonderful community of global crocheter’s.
You can see photos of all the contributions from around the globe over at the SIBOL Flickr group.

At the moment I am keeping my wool in it that I am using at the time. I have decided to make another which is going to be a 500th post giveaway on my blog.
I think it would look in a wide range of colours. My daughter likes it too.............
Best get on with the next one.

I wanted to make the back different, therefore having two cushions in one. The white wool is in fact 100% cotton yarn. I normally use it for making dish cloths and it was lovely to crochet with. I stitched the panels together and then finished off the edging with some picot stitch.
More of the making can be seen on my blog.

You can see my progress at my place. It really looks complicated but it's really pretty easy to do. Just some time to do it. The blue rows are little motifs. The first row of blue has 15 motifs and the second row has 30 motifs. So it is a little time consuming. But well worth the effort.
