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!

Progress on the Ravenclaw Cap/Scarf #1


Well this is one of my Knit-Crochet endeavors. I think that one of the things I enjoy a lot is to make hats. I am really liking the way this hat is coming along. Today I made a little progress on the scarf and decided to dedicate the rest of the time to create a design for the hat. I want to make sure that the lists that I belong to do not kick me out because I only Knit or crochet lol! It works a lot better when you leave a project have a little nap while you rethink the pattern and allow it to come out, specially since I am not following any pattern graph , but my basic cap pattern, which you can find HERE. As I say, I allow the yarn to tell me a story and sometimes I get inspiration from things I see in nature or around me.

Good Question from Kyle. What are those markers for? The markers (more or less) mark the are where I started the color changes and slipped the stitch. Not the specific spot but the idea of how it travels when you use the technique. So you can see that the travelling joggless stripes move along as the work progresses.

My knitting has been very easy and the tension is very even. I am going to have enough of the blue yarn from Knit Picks to make a hat with the copper colored yarn.

Today I found a cool site, The Leaky Cauldron, and if you are a Harry Potter Theme Fan, you will be delighted in the patterns that they have to share. There are patterns for more than knitting and crochet. One of my favorite patterns is the Illusion Ravenclaw Scarf, this is a very cool looking scarf. I have never made a scarf like that. I may break down and make my copper and blue scarf in that way.

Thank you for stopping by ... more to come!

Good Question Kyle. I will make the comment here and on the posting. The markers are where I started the color changes and slipped the stitch. SO you can see that the travelling joggless stripes move along as the work progresses.

addendum to above posted commentary Not the specific spot but the idea of how it travels when you use the technique.
