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!

Tapestry Crochet WIP 2012

TapestryCrochetHat
It is amazing how these hats all look the same on the inside, but turn them around and the view is different.  I am working on my next hat to be published, it is the most asked about Hat I have in my collection, The Philosopher's Hat.  I am almost done testing the crown and will be testing the Head Band  soon.  This hat came to life at the 1st Men Fall Knitting Retreat in 2008.  Sometimes the hats I make are like drawings are to a design.  Sometimes I make patterns while making the hat, but most times I make a Hat and then create the pattern.  It is gratifying both ways, just different.

I am still working on my First Knit Fair Isle Hat for sale, soon to be published.  Life is busy and I am enjoying my creative endeavors.  Once in a while I read a book, but then I have time to weave and spin. Thanks for stopping by!
