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!

Scarfing in February, plus a hat

Remember the Berlin Brioche Scarf I started the other day. This has been one of the most challenging patterns, but I have learned a lot about knitting with it. The Brioche Stitch is all knit and I like that, no purling so far. I look forward to making a Harry Potter Ravenclaw Two Color Brioche Stitch for this Fall. Watch for it as I may come up with the Pattern myself!The garterlac Scarf is another beauty of a scarf. You want to learn this stitch, this pattern is the best to learn it. I believe you can get it from Skacel. I bet you this scarf will be a beauty in Noro Silk Garden Chunky or worsted weight.
The Palermo Sun has been until now very difficult to make, but having made two other Tapestry Crochet Hats , has allowed me to master some techniques which I am using as I am creating this pattern which will be released soon after my other pattern is proofed.
Well I just sent a "you tube" video from which this pictures came from. Thanks for stopping by.

The hat is kooking good. I will be interested to see it once it is finished. The entrelac garter stitch scarf looks good. I really like the colourway.
