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!

Hats for the fun of it!!!

I got this wonderful pattern from Brooke Higgins at http://knitty.com/ISSUEsummer05/PATTtychus.html, it is the easiest knit pattern for hats I have ever found. She is very talented. I have to tell you that I have no talent when it comes to making knitted hats with more than two needles, I get very confused. I guess that's why I don't make socks, which I have tried, but become bored easily and because it takes a lot of time for me to get something acomplished. I admit I am a sock virgin. I am thinking of crochetting some socks later this year for the first time. Right now I have two projects going, one of them is these hats, which I think are very crafty and the other is Dachshund Heidi a pattern from http://www.crochetdepot.org/. The Pattern is located at http://www.crochetdepot.org/patterns/DachshundHeidi.pdf You will need acrobat reader to be able to view it.

So if you think that I am working on holidays stocking stuffers, you are so right. It is a well known fact that puertorricans like holidays and if there isn't one, we are more than happy to make a new one without hesitation. Please enjoy life and the fun of sharing a smile, a smile can change someones life. Without a smile I feel naked, I am actually blushing. Can you believe it?

I have made a commitment that everyday I go out into the world I will pick up at least two pieces of trash and put it in a trash receptacle; needless to say I will never litter consciously . So do your part for the cleanliness of your city and pick up at least one piece of litter a day, if you can. We are part of the environment we are all one "Esho Funi".

Some Buddhists call "esho funi" -- the idea that self and environment are two but not two. Esho funi holds that by changing myself, I simultaneously change my environment. A change can be simultaneous only if there is no separation -- no distance in time or space -- between self and environment. So at the deepest level there is no "internal" and "external" -- it's all the same place, same thing.

Have a great weekend from the shores of Kalifornia.
