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!

Recycle me New

In this kind of economy we need to be able to recognize the need to recycle yarn. This hat was the Head Hugger hat. I was not very pleased with the hat, but I really like the yarn, so what to do? I just took apart the hat and recycled the yarn. I am doing that with some other hats as well.

What you see me using here is my new double point needles. I will tell you that it is a great joy to work with this needles on small projects as hats and mittens. There is a point when you will benefit from a circular needle, but so far I have been happy making the hats this way.

This is the "Armando Hat" you can find it in Ravelry, it is a masculine lace hat. It is an easy repeat and works fantastic with the malabrigo yarn that is suggested to be work with. I actually use number 9 US needles with this hat.This is the last view of the front of the hat. This is a great example of a Lace pattern that can be masculine and yet has the touch of a lace project. If you have not tried lace this will be a great beginners project.
To a great weekend of recycling yarn for new projects lol! Thanks for stopping by!
