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!

Bamboo Yarn Visit, Blocking a Hat



I finnally finished the Hat and it was fun making this video. Bamboo is a very peculiar yarn, it has many filaments and a luster sheen. This one in specific is Royal Bamboo by Plymouth Yarns. It behaves a lot like cotton when wet. It soaks up water of course it is plant material. I would recommend itfor knitting with size 7 or abov needles. Crochetting was a challenge for me, so I decided to do a knit project. Thanks for stopping by!

Yes...I have used this brand crocheting and I agree..difficult to work with...very slippery, but very soft.
