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!

Autumnal Beret wip

Since last year I wanted to make this Beret and this year I got to start. I got a superwash Cascade yarn and the Rowan Kid Silk-Mohair blend, it is so soft , it screams. I am mixing these two beauties to make this a very soft and fuzzy Beret. It is in the spirit of Autumn that I embrace the browns, let's see what happens. So I end the month of September 2010 on a soft note and start the month of October 2010 on a soft note as well. There is a little trip in the works that is fiber related, but you will witness what happens in a few days. I will start this project with DPNs, but will be moving to Addi Lace circulars, because the kid -silk mohair blend loves to be on Addis. A versatile mix of Super Kid Mohair and Silk which can be cleverly adapted to a lot of projects and when blended gives you a delicious halo to play with.  This is  a Moss Stitch Beret by Kent Turman and is a free Pattern on Ravelry which you can find HERE . Thanks for stopping by!
