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!

Baby Surprise Jacket WIP

The Baby Surprise Jacket is a real surprise as it is done in cotton and not in wool. Wool has different properties than cotton as we all know and when it comes to weave the ends, cotton takes a bit more work than wool. I used remnants of colors and I am very proud of the outcome. I will have a video explaining a bit more about the assembling of it and the termination of this Sweater. It is almost done, I still want to make a hat and get some very funky buttons this week. Thanks for stopping by!

What a nice job! I really like the colour combination as well... cotton will be nice for summer. It will take the chill off and not be too warm... Do you have a precious baby in mind for the recipient of this sweater Andy?

Good Job! I can't wait to see the video!

Oh I have been busy listening to knitting podcasts. hehe my new love... I can't get enough of them ... :D
