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!

Knit Picks Circular et more

Knit Picks has two types of circular needles and lots of cables to attach to them on the go. I ordered some to see what they look like and to make something with them. I am hoping to make the Adult's Surprise Jacket from Elizabeth Zimmerman , which you may find at http://schoolhousepress.com . I am going to use the nickle plated needles and see how the behave. I ordered A set of Harmony Tips to see how they behave. So far I am not impressed with the Harmony 's looks, don't take me wrong they are pretty, but I thought the colors would be brighter, more vivid. The finish is very good, rather excellent and I will see how the behave when I knit with them.
This is part of a Baby Assemble that I am putting together with the DagronFly Dreams Afghan, So far I am very happy with the work I am doing, the stitch is a bit difficult for my hands, but giving it some rest it works out fine. I am hoping to get a hat and booties finished this weekend.

I like the harmony needles ! Of course I don't know much (lol) I've tried the nickel plated, but for me they are too slippery. I'm sure that goes with my newbie status as a knitter.

The set is beautiful !!! I love your work Mr. Crafty Andy !
