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!

Honorable Ravenclaw Hat 1 / Family

This is the First Honorable Ravenclaw House Hat for Travelling and functions. It is done in what is called Tapestry Crochet. “Tapestry crocheted textiles can be made in a variety of ways. The technique varies according to which crochet stitches are used, which part of the stitch on the previous row the hook is inserted into, whether the crocheter is right-handed or left-handed, whether the textile is crocheted one way or back and forth, how many colours are used and how the yarns are carried and switched. For more information about Tapestry Crochet you can visit HERE . My cousin Nilka came to San Francisco to visit and work and we had the opportunity to meet and relate a bit. Her Grand Mother from her mother side was the Sister of my Grand Father from my mother side. It is amazing what blood makes you feel for people. She is feels like a sister in many ways. One night we had a good Meal at an Indian Restaurant above.

Here we shared with Mike at a Thai Restaurant, both meals were delicious! Thanks for stopping by!
