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!

Christmas in Cotton, some WIP

The first picture as you can tell is some Tapestry Crochet , I had to redo the sides as I was lazy and did not chart the sides and went ad lib. The snowflakes on the side looked like Space Invaders, remember those? SO I decided to do something else that you will get to see sometime in the next few days. This is made in Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton, it is not the softest of yarns to crochet with, but it feels nice. I will not be overheating when I wear this hat inside or outside either. Being Tapestry Crochet on the crown gives it extra density. So this is one of my WIP in Crochet!

The Second picture is my Garterlac scarf, garter titch entrelac scarf. Even though we were taught how to knit and purl backwards, this particular piece does not require tat skill because is in garter stitch. This is a lovely project and I am learning so much with it. I am glad that I am at the second skein of the project I hope I get to finish it before the Thanksgiving Holiday!
So nothing much, just peace and love. Everyone have a great week and I shall be back in a day or two. Thanks for stopping by!

The entrelac is looking great.
I once made a mohair sweater in entrelac and I was so proud of it until my ex accidentally? put it in the washing machine!
I am going to try entrelac crochet one day.
