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!

This is my first Fair Isle project on socks and it is so cute. I got this pattern from Ravelry it is called Swedish Fish Socks, By SpillyJane http://spillyjane.blogspot.com . The pattern is simple, but it looks like a lot of fun. There is a Sunday Sock Group in San Francisco that meets on a Cafe and this is their KAL. I am so excited, because the pattern is a lot prettier than this. The yarn is malabrigo sock yarn and the blue is Noro Kureyon Sock yarn. I am hoping that the mixture of the two will make a great blend. I am using US 2 and because I tend to knit lose I am kind of testing how this come out. If I can not wear them because they are too tight, I have the right to give them to, but we shall keep it a secret lol. I am making the Lizard Socks for me. Thanks for stopping by.
