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!

Double the Fun Heel Flap

heelflapDblyarn (6)
This is the Newland Picons, and one of the things that I decided to to different this time is to use some extra yarn that was included with this skein to reinforce the heel and the toe.  I am using two strands to make the heel flap and I will turn the heel with the two of them as well.  I don't know if I will be doing the toe in the same manner just yet. This is one of those times that I can tell you that the signature needles have made a big difference as they are very strong and the yarn does not fall off.  These needles are worth their money and I can see myself getting another set of dpns  US 1.

None the less here is some crochet, is Tapestry Crochet as I am working on creating the Pattern for one of the Philosopher's hats that I have created in the past.  This is the reversed side, I don't want anyone to steal the pattern lol! I will put the hat down for a bit and allow myself to get some more inspiration as I tackle the making of the pattern once more.  This pattern will be a bit modified from the original, most of the patterns that I recreate are, but it is for the better.  Well a bit of crochet and a bit of knitting and some pattern design, This is going to be an interesting 4th of July weekend.  Thanks for stopping by!
