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!

Actually is the Carlito Cardigan by Matthew Gnany.  I named it The Agathon just to have a BSG themed Item.  It definitely reminds me of Helo, or  Tahmoh Penikett the actor that plays , Helo Agathon.  The pattern may be found here on Ravelry. 

http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/carlito-cardigan, which by the way is a free pattern, but I bought before it went for free.

The main reason why I like this Cardigan is that it is a cardigan and in the Area of California where I live a Cardigan is always a good choice. I am using the wool-ease blend of Lionbrand in the mushroom colorway, The other reason that I wanted to do this cardigan is that it looks like a very challenging project that will keep me entertained for hours at a time, and it has lol! This is the left Front of the Cardigan and I am ready to start the front panel for my size. I used a bigger needles, because of the swatch for gauge that I made. Yes I was not going to make this Cardigan without a gauge swatch, it will be insane. Hope you have a wonderful Saturday and Happy Pride Sunday everyone. Thanks for stopping by!
