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!

Alpaca Tweed

I have been blessed with patience and determination, some say it is being stubborn, lol. This has helped me in the quest of having fun with yarn and wools and any fabric that I can spin into yarn. I have some of this fleece that was given to me by a friend and I am carding it to make rolags and from there I make yarn. I am hoping to make some exciting tweedy like yarn. I am also trying to create some dk weight worsted weight kind of yarn and so far am having success. It is easier than I thought. My biggest inspiration has been seeing Abby Franquemont spinning video and ready her book , "Respect The Spindle". I hope you follow my adventures in my craft and that you can come along with me in my search of fiber fun. Thanks for stopping by
