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!

Chenille, we all go through Stages

This is the Video Camera bag that I made using three strands of chenille. As a man I find chenille is a tough material to make things for me, but if you choose the right color combination, you can give anything a masculine look, lol! I will be having a Video presentation this weekend of my finish objects, and some of my works in progress. In the video you will see the full functionality of this bag, plus I will give you an explanation of the two Crochet Styles that I used to make this bag.

This below is a work in progress. I am working on a Tunisian Crochet Lapghan using those same there strands of material. In my mind feels like "Finally I found something useful for this chenille yarn besides making a Teddy Bear." Hilarious , but very crafty!

Thanks for stopping by!

I like it. You know, the linked treble crochet is a wonderful stitch for making a denser fabric-I'm thinking about a pattern using that stitch for a tote bag.

Nice bag, Andy. I'm on a huge bag kick lately and I can't get enough of them! I've never used chenille before. I have been tempted but I don't know what to make out of it. You've lit that fire under me though to get some!
