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!

Fulling around

Later on this blog I will share the ordeal of a lifetime.  Somehow I will share the remodeling of my home, with the challenges we encountered.  I will do so because I want to share my experience and how I manage the challenge.  I did find help online, but I can tell you  that my common sense, my scientific background and the prayers, encouragement and goodwill of friends , personal physician and my Buddhist Practice, helped me to be triumphant. 

This is my work in progress right now, it is a boring knit that will get fulled, which is almost felting.  I am hoping to do is boil this sleeve and force the fabric to fuse a bit.  This is a sleeve for my Acer Iconia Tablet.  I used size 10.50 US needles instead of US 13, it makes a big difference, but not for what I am hoping to do. I could have crochet it instead of knittting it, but sometimes crochet fabric does not felt as well as knitted fabric.

I am always amazed at life and the human experience.  You know who your true friends are when you are in the middle of sufferings.  Never lose hope as life ever changing wheel of fortune is always turning and nothing good or bad lasts forever, Be well and thanks for stopping by!
