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!

Homespun Alpaca Yarn

210yardsAlpaca220grams (8)
This was a fun project to do on the wheel. My Kromski Sonata still making yarn after the fix with the Gorilla Glue.  I am always afraid it will com apart, but now I have options to repair that I did not have before.  I will have to say that I am looking at Lendrums a lot and will be probably sit down on one some day and see wat it feels like. I have seen a lot of great reviews on Lendrums. I was also looking at the Side Kick from Schacht  it looks very intriguing again I will have to sit down and give it a spin sometime. I guess I was not satisfied with the "New Voyager" note that it only happened to another person, they changed the manufacturing, and on and on I really felt left out in the cold. I will leave it at that for now.

I tell you how much the Kromski incident has affected my purchasing anything Kromski, is really not going to happen for a long time if it happens at all. As a matter of fact I am not going to buy my next loom from them that is for sure. I think that I rather spend more money on s Flip  25" loom and stand than get something cheaper that may not work as promised. Very dissappointed KROMSKI, every time I get on my wheel I am watching it for signs of Failure!!!! ANyway hope you liked the yarn and I am hoping to make more yarn in the next few days along with some other great Hand Dyes, some with natural things and some with almost natural things like Kool Aid, and some with Jacquard Dyes.  I am hoping to have some nice videos to post as well.Thanks for stopping by.
