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!

Odinn by Ragnheidur Eiriksdottir
I have always wanted to make this kind of sweater. A Lopapeysa, but the weather in San Francisco is never that cold. I have made this sweater using Encore, which is a blend 80 Acrylic/ 20 Wool and it is really good.
I started this project June 22 and finished it July 4th. This pattern is a very quick knit as it is made with a chunky yarn. I was very glad to finish it and get my photographer , Michael Heylin, to help me with the photo op. I hope you enjoy the pictures and that you get motivated to make one of this babies. It is easier than you think, but you have to mind your color-work tension and gauge. Thanks for stopping by!
