I am hoping that this blog will help you and me experience the craft of crochet as well as knitting. During times of silence or turmoil, crochet and knitting continuously help me quiet my mind at my own pace, enabling me to find my center. I have patterns for sale in PDF Format, you can find them at their own Pages at the top menu. The posts are classified By labels which are at the far right, all the way down. We are the Borg! I think it will bring Order into Chaos!

Crochet and Do your Vest!!!!



Isn't it a very clever title? I borrowed the title from the pattern's name by The Crochet Dude, I think the pattern so far is fantastic. Here on the left you will find the way the vest looks on the pattern flyer, please be conscious of the copyright, I asked for permisssion to post this picture, if you want to use it ask The Crochet Dude.


As I go along I will post the progress of my vests. Here on the right side, is my work in progress. I am thinking of working with different materials, one of them being Lion Brand Wool Ease. I am working on plain 100% acrylic in a deep blue by Red Heart yarns. I bet some nice egyptian Cotton, or Linen, which by the way comes from the Flax or Linen plant, will add great texture and feeling to it.

Did you know that the Flax plant seeds have been used for lowering the amount of cholesterol in your blood in modern times? It is also used in cooking as a substitute for eggs in a recipe.

So make sure you don't confuse the terms and eat your vests. LOL. I believe that these materials will make a beautiful vest with an exquisite texture, cool enough to wear in the summer heat. I think the trick will be to use a nice breathable yarn for summer vests and either synthethic or denser yarns for the colder months.

I want to thank all of you for keeping up with me and the Academy for the award, Ooop!, I think I am confused with my other talents and the Emmy Awards, which I probably deserve one anyway, but I will stop right here for today. Thank you , Thank you , Thank you.
