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!

There is Lace in my Haze

Scarf Lace (2) blur
This is my latest creation. It is a lace scarf in the Estonian Style, well that is what I think. It is inspired by the readings of Lace from Estonia by Nancy Bush. It is simple and very fast. There may be more to come in the near future as I get to practice some more. The yarn was variegated in a camo colorway, but I did not like the yarn color that much. It has been overdyed with Brown and I really like the way it looks. The yarn is Oak by Fibranatura and it is a blend of 60 wool,20 silk and 20 linen. I do like the yarn, I hate the color it had, lol. It is blocking , I used this fiber to test the pattern, but the real fiber will be Malabrigo Arroyo. I can't wait until it is made in Arroyo. Malabrigo yarns was kind enough to gift me three skeins of yarn. I am hoping to create a scarf, a Crochet hat and maybe a Crochet Shawl. This guy is actually drying at the moment and once I am done with the Malabrigo version, I will post a clear picture.  This is the before and after of the yarn.
