    Mikey, it takes me longer to find a pattern to crochet than to finish a project. This pattern is the one I FINALLY chose. Please remember that you only get one ride on this merry-go-round called life. Live it for yourself, your world, and the people that love you. <3

    Patricia’s idea’s a good one! Or make it and wear it at home, until you can move to San Francisco, where it wouldn’t attract any gnarly attention.

    So make it on a smaller scale and wear it around your neck. In that form it should be perfectly acceptable and you can smile all day without working at it. Just a thought.

    Well, I think you shouldn’t deny yourself! In the right setting, you CAN wear it. It’s not fair that we girls can wear men’s attire and you can’t wear ours! Make one and enjoy wearing, if only for yourself and your partner.

    and you can wear it on the cruises next year, as long as you don’t mind all the “heavy petting” from your fellow cruising crochet crowders!

    I’ll readily admit that I defy Social convention all the time by buying men’s clothing and shoes (ok well technically I’m forced to buy Boys shoes because they are the only ones that fit) but anyway. If I like it i don’t care what social convention says. I do agree with the others. if you like it and want to wear it, then go for it. I only the other hand wouldn’t actually wear something like that because it’s to “Girly” for my tastes. I would make something from the yarn to give to a friend or family member who might like it.

    You don’t have to show the whole world, if you want it for in the house or private parties or just hanging out with friends, etc you can still have something like that or something else made from that yarn.

    I’m also super jealous over women that can wear this kind of stuff….somehow I just look a wreck in it! Certain shapes work with certain styles, and it could starve for a year and still look wrong in this. Pity, cos it looks like fun to make! Oh well, I’ll stick to what I know I can get away with I guess. Rats! Shall we have a party to just wear what we like to and never mind the haters? Hehehe

    Mikey ,have you heard of Bernat’s Sweety yarns ? I found a pattern that calls for it in teal, mint green,rose,pink,peach and white. It uses a size H hook If not any other ideas on what I might use? It’s for a Lily Pond Afghan in a Better Homes and Garden’s Book circa 1991

    Thanks so much Donna Kasulis

    Mikey, can you do a lesson on this shawl? It is gorgeous, but a little tricky!

    Mikey, just a suggestion, get a western type shirt in a dark color and do a medallion in the yarn for the back in a lighter but contrasting color and to cover the pocket in the front with a smaller medallion, that would be acceptable male attire. I have seen many men in western shirts with sequins and fancy designs and no one looks at them strangely
