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!

Doctor Phlox

Here you have the two elements of the Doctor Phlox. It has been plied, blocked-whacked, and dried. I manage to make 280 yards with 120 grams. Only with experience and lots of practice. I enjoy drop spindle and will be enjoying Wheel Spinning soon.

This warn was a lot of fun to make, but I was very tired at the end. DId not like carbonized bamboo for spinning, the nearmere or nylon cashmere was lots of fun to work with.

I was able to spin 560 yards on this spindle at once and then ues a ball winder to make a center pulled ball.
