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!

Sun Satchel a WIP

Satchel 001
There are men knitters that I find very inspiring for different reasons, Stephen West is very inspiring for pushing the envelopes on shawls and twisted stitches and adding colors that make you say wow.  The pattern you see above is the Sun Satchel.  I am sure that is related to the "Old Forge" in some way.   The pattern is very easy, yet you need to have an idea of how to make felted items.  I want a new bag so this is the right project for me.  The most difficult part of this project is selecting the sequence of colors,  I hope I can finish this project by the weekend.  Thanks for stopping by.
