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!

Old Forge in the making

I have wanted to make this blanket, since the first time I saw it on the net. Westknits is a very inspiring guy. I decided to get the dark wool from the same place he got it from. It is a place called Beaverslide Dry Goods and the wool is on the way. I did dye some really deep cherry red wool for the contrasting color. I started doing the Emily Ocker crochet cast on, then on dpns until I got to a point that I decided it was time for two circulars. OldForgeCaprica (1)

The two circulars will make it easier to work . I am going to be making a lot of Westknits projects in the next few weeks, while I am testing some of my patterns ready to publish. This month there is a Teddy Bear Pattern that will make it's debut. in the meantime here we go to a fun blanket. Thanks for stopping by!
