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!

Warrior's Hat Update and some Yarn

Today I went to my client to test the hat on his head. I was a great Fit. I have never worked with Lamb's Pride for a hat and I was at a point that I could undo one or two inches without losing the design I have already created. I decide to do this before it got too big.

During the test I saw that I will be needing a 4 to 5 inch brim from this point. The choices of colors is alternating colors , a ribbing like in knitting, maybe I will knit it . It will be in both colors, maybe alternating colors or maybe something else. I will let the yarn tell its story. So far the yarn has told me lots.

Here is some wool in very bright spring colors, it actually is like Easter or they can be for baby items. You can also make some felted Hot Pads or make some Coasters, a Tea cozy? I was a little disappointed because the colors are more bright than I expected, but the yarn is really good. This material is definitely great for felting, even though I have not felted with it. I will take it upon myself to felt something so that I can properly say that it can be used for felting. Some of this wool will be for some of my exchanges and some for gifts.

Thanks for stopping by!
