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!

Testing 123 , Kauni Yarns

I have never made anything from this yarn, until I decided to design a hat with it.  I got it at Stitches West, and there was a lot of hovering around the skeins.   Kauni is one of the most excellent yarns I have seen. I just like the texture of it, how easy it fuses when you want to join. It is light. I just made a Fair Isle hat,(which will be published soon), with a mere 50 grams of the stuff. Yes you heard me right, you got 150 grams of Kauni in a variegated version and a Solid and you can make 5 wool hats. The hat is light like a feather.

So what else could I do, retest the pattern by knitting the opposites now and see what a wonderful combination is going to be.  I have to say I am in love with this yarn. In my opinion it is a good investment. Stay tuned to the pattern next week.  Thanks for stopping by!
