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!

Irish Hiking Scarf Knit Along or (KAL) et more

Some days I am amazed at the ability of my hands, some days they don't work that great. So when the hands can handle some knitting I knit and when they want crochet I crochet. For the longest I wanted to join the Irish Hiking Scarf Knit ALong. It may be some embedded genetic code from the time of my ancestors from the Iberian Peninsula that is to be awaken when Celtic motifs are seen.

Since the weather have been unusually warm in the city, cotton is nice to work with. A little change from the merino wool, which is always lovely to handle. I have many projects on the works , some in my head and some on the table. I want to make a nice needle holder case and I may do that this weekend as well. This gives me a change and helps my hands stay sharp. A needle case is very easy to make compared to the Hiking scarf. It may be my first quilting project and I will have Minky to thank for the material as I have some Magical Fabric that she sent me to make the case. Go and take a look at her Monster Purse it is very cute.

Well enough of my ramblings for the day, maybe there will be another post today maybe not. I still have to go to the gym and get the adrenaline kicking. Thanks for stopping by.
