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!

Here is the starting of the Hufflepuff project. I have gotten Hufflepuff Mania I guess along with the other Houses of course. You notice that I have a paper and a pencil somewhere. I really like the fact of writing down the sets of rows that I am working on. When I start the new row I put a mark by the row number, so whether I stop in the middle or finish, the number that I am at is the one with the marking. I am using Lamb's Pride Lemon Drop Worsted Weight yarn and Black of course. I am really getting the hang of knitting on two circular needles. I guess it is in preparation for when I get to do socks. Now socks is a project that I am looking forward to as well. Maybe later on or before the month goes out I will have a video with a casting on done in circular needles. I will be on the Internet for posterity. I am working on having an almost seemsless color change, let's see what happens.

I have learned that I tend to knit tight, so I have to relax the way I knit and for once I have made the gauge I wanted with number 6 US, 4 mm metric circular needles. 5 stitches to the inch. I am very proud of myself. I think that I am going to do my video when I start my Irish Hiking Scarf either tomorrow or Tuesday.

On another note I am hoping to make it to the movies and see the New Simpson's Movie. Thanks for stopping by!
