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!

Wabi Sabi Socks
I have not looked at this book yet, but I am planning on looking at it tonight. All I can tell you is that from the cover I imagine it will bring me to a place I have wanted to be. Socks in colors and socks that come alive are a great theme for me. Sometimes we don't know where we are going, but definitely we know where we come from. Along with this I am hoping to get another set of Signature DPN Needles and if I am able to save some money for the end of the year, I am hoping to get some of Tom Bihn project and yarn bags with the clear bottom. I have seen those and I like them a lot. They can be pricey, but compared to other bags, they are not expensive at all. You get features like a clear bottom and a snap to secure your yarn of your work in progress. This bags where made with the knitter and crocheter in mind.
I ordered the book from Knit Picks along with some Tools of the trade necessities, T-Pins (stainless steel) and some point protectors. Knit Picks is have a great sale on Overspun Sport Yarn look and see if you want some before is all gone.HERE is the link, the yarn is going fast. The yarn can be used in many ways, but it may twist a bit. Great for felting or projects where it will not matter. Thanks for stopping by.
