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!

Photo , Hips Hems,Skacel & Cat Bordhi

I had the great pleasure of meeting Franklin and share some time with him. Franklin is a very talented man and a very interesting knitter which is very creative and can knit lace to die for. I consider him a friend and hope to continue our friendship with time.Franklin as you all know is the author of the hilarious book It Itches: A Stash of Knitting Cartoons.

We had the great honor this day of having Franklin Habit teaching a class on how to photograph your fiber or your finished object or your work in progress, even though I was not sitting at the class I was able to listen in. Today I go my Addis Complete Set, well almost complete, I will be getting two more sets of points in the next two weeks 13, 15. The bag is a beautiful green as you can see.
These two pictures were inspired by the class I took by proxy from Franklin. It opened my eyes as to what to do and how to be very experimental with the camera and to play with lights and shadows.

Stephen Houghton, HizKnits from Yknit gave us a class on Tubular cast on, and hip hems for him, which I will have to practice again because it was fantastic . He is a fun teacher.
Our tour of Skacel was fantastic, we saw the owner and the people that work behind the scenes. It is nice to see what a great place to work that is and how wonderful Karen is. Thanks to Brian Kohler for helping us arrange this and for the great SWAG we got from Skacel. Is a great company and if you want good quality needles this is the company to buy from.
So yes they allowed us in, it was like a kid in Candy Land, wonderful yarns, great needles, and all at our reach, we had the nity gritty about Skacel and Addis.
Last , but not least, we had Cat Bordhi giving us a very inspiring chat, she was very nice lady and gave us lots to think about. She liked my worked and encouraged me to write a book , something that I will eventually do, just have to start Chapter one.
Every Day was fantastic I wish we could do this every month lol! Thanks for stopping by.
