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!

Retro Caprican

Can we survive the Ice Age?? Retro Caprican is a challenge because I am using a yarn that was not around in the time of this sweater. I believe this pattern will look luscious with this yarn. A Bernat Boatneck Classic and it is given in thre different weights of yarn and it is given in three normal sizes. Normal for the time that the pattern was written. I think is very Retro Looking even though the pattern was printed in 1960 , the same year I was born. Fantastic a celebration to my life with such a great pattern. I owe thanks to one of my friend Kyle fort the gift of the yarn a few weeks ago. Hope to have this one done in a month.

Thanks for stopping by!
