BONUS SWEET DREAMS CROCHET PATTERN:
Sweet Dreams Crochet Blanket
- "Sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite! Make a
bedtime sweet dreams blanket using this free crochet pattern. Your little girl
will love snuggling up in it!"
SWEET DREAMS KNIT PATTERN:
Sweet Dreams Socks - "This simple knit sock pattern is sure
to hug your feet in all the right places and will never sag or
droop. The Sweet Dreams Socks are soft, warm, and have just the
right amount of texture with some easy ribbed stitch work. These
socks are a pretty blend of light pinks, purples, and oranges.
They're perfect for lounging around the house or a casual
weekend running errands or doing yard work. The Sweet Dreams
Socks are as much fun to knit as they are to wear."
|Back in my hippie college days, a professor came up to me in the
cafeteria and asked me, "Ya dig?"
I thought to myself, this guy's pretty far out, so I answered, "Yeh,
man. I dig!"
That's how I got hoodwinked into joining his archaeological expedition.
