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!

Hera's Hope Lace Scarf WIP

I am making this scarf in a bigger size with a bigger hook. I am also changing the way I am making the squares. The squares are completed with a sc row, one sc for each chain and or stitch. By doing this I have the square already set up for joining without to think about it much

What I like about this yarn is that is a bit rough so it grabs unto itself, great for this kind of lace crochet project. This yarn still under scrutiny for knitting, I would not buy it for a knit project because they have at least one or two knots in the skein which for a crochet square is no problem ans crochet can hide a multitude of sins. This is a quick project and it is for my mother's birthday . Thanks for stopping by.

It is a light fingering weight 50/50 wool silk I found on ebay, great for crocheting, but I would not recommend it for knitting as it has many knots.
