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!

It is a Lace WIP 2013
No I have not disappeared with the new year. I have been working very hard in many things. I am making this Evenstar Shawl as a wedding Veil for a gift. It takes about 4 hours or so a day 4-6 days a week, whenever I have the chance. I am using lifelines , I am learning a lot about myself. I am learning a lot about how I knit and to pay attention as always to my work. This is one of the most exciting projects I have made in my life. I has a border with beads as well. I am on Round 56 of 71 Rounds, this is on the Third Chart and thus the last Chart before the beaded border. This pattern is exquisite and if you want a challenge, this will be a fantastic challenge. I am making this pattern with 100 % Aimsha Silk Lace yarn. I got a 1 Pound Cone from http://www.aurorasilk.com/ . The Yarn is beautifully made and it is worth the money you pay for it. This is how big the half of the shawl is without really stretching it.
I am able to do some quick things once in a while and I will be posting more often. There comes Stitches West around the corner, and that is always fun. I am also going to be making a Man's Shawl with Malabrigo yarns, I am awaiting the yarn and will be crochet. I am hoping it will be some kind of triangular shawl, but you never know what kind of trouble Crafty Andy will get into.
This year I am also going back to school , because I am hoping to go back to work some time in the near future, hopefully 2014. I am a Computer Analyst with a lot of Networking experience. At any rate, lots of fun coming along, just wanted to take a pick and say hi to all of you. Happy 2013 and may this be another great year. Thanks for stopping by!
