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!

Hats, Bags and a Men's Retreat

This is my Baroque Christmas Hat WIP, it is done with Cervinia Sock yarn and F hook .
This one is called the Palermo Sun, which I am writing the pattern as I go,it is a pattern for the daring and it will be fantastic, I will be sharing it here and on Ravelry!
Here is what I am doing with the Sari Silk Yarn, with another strand of wool. Sari Silk yarn is very pretty, but it is not the easiest yarn to make a pattern with. SO I grabbed this Pattern Cables and Bobbles Patchwork Shoulder Bag from HERE and modified to serve my needs. I started the pattern with a bottom in crochet, then I picked up the stitches and I am knitting up and around. This pattern is made for straight needles, I am using four sets of #10 US circulars.
Finally you see the Men Who Knit West Coast Fall Knitting Retreat bag for 2008! I will keep you up to date later on and maybe there will be some videos next week. In the meantime I want to thank you for stopping by!
