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!

Picons One

The Picons are a sock pattern based on Marlowe Crawford's Newland. I actually was able to double the yarn on the heel flap and the turning of the heel, I also double the yarn at the toe. I was very surprised to find that I liked the xtra cushion from the heel and the toe. I used a different yarn to double up on the tow, but not so different that it did not go along with the colorway. I may have re - discovered my love for socks with a cushioned heel and a cushioned toe. Thanks for stopping by!
