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!

Happy Spring 09 Everyone

Are you ready for the most fun ever? Alan Dart has gotten PDF Downloads on his site and will be adding more next month. I just got this Yorkie Knit Pattern PDF, a great value for $3.72 at this moment or £ 2.50, I have been able to get the link the the patterns for stuffed animals that are really to die for. I admire Alan for his accomplishment of great realism in knit patterns. Please go and visit him and get some PDF patterns HERE, you will not be disappointed, they are in knit format and he accepts PAY PAL! I think is a great deal, I have never seen patterns like his, and now they are available for download.

I hope the Spring of 2009 brings us lots of fun. I can feel the change in the air, the economy will turn around very unexpectedly, but not really. A lot of cash has been infused and I believe consumer confidence is back. Those people at AIG I say "Never cheat a Klingon unless you're sure you can get away with it." rule of acquisition #192. I just can't believe that you think you deserve a bonus after what has happened. We shall leave it at that, in the meantime there is yarn to dye for!I like this picture it shows the movement in yarn, is funky. So what I am doing with the yarn, well if you are interested in purchasing a specif skein let me know, but otherwise I am planning to make hats and maybe some scarves, The sock yarn is definitely for socks and there is no limit to the fun I am having. As I am learning about colors , I am learning about fibers and the chemistry of dyeing. Cotton is more difficult to dye than wool, but synthetics like acrylic, that's something left for the manufacturing process. Show and tell will continue as I am more and more involve into dyeing. I ordered some samples from the Knit Picks bare yarns and let's see if I can apply what I have learned so far about dyeing yarn. It can be fun if you take all the precautions needed to protect yourself from the chemicals. Well I hope you enjoy the video and thanks for stopping by.
