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!

Corn Yarn WIP

One of the things that I have noticed with the new fibers out there, is that they have made ribbon yarns with them. It seems that bamboo and corn behave better when they are in some kind of ribbon yarn. This yarn I will have to look in my Ravelry Account to tell you which brand it is. It is Kollage Cornucopia. It is very elastic and kind of stringy, the feel is nice to the touch. So anywho, I will keep you up to date in my adventures of the Corn Kind. By the way this is going to be a skull cap in Crochet, using a bone hook size G. Thanks for stopping by!

The hat is lookin' good so far. Can't wait to see the end product.

I find it so amazing the things that they are making yarn from these days. It's a far cry from the "squeeky" acrylics and scratchy wools that we grew up with.

Oh, just a small request......send some sun shine my way, please :)
