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!

XOXOXO Middle & Index Fingers

Can you believe it? I have a thumb gusset and it was very simple to make. I figure once I made socks I would be able to make gloves. What I did not expect was to fall in love with Double Pointed Needles. I started this whole project on size 7 dpns and for the gloves and fingers I decided to work with size 2 dpns, it made sense, it made it easy.
I am now at the threshold of the Annular and pinky finger and then to the next glove which will be easier. One of the things I noticed is that as in socks there are gaps that you can circumvent by picking up and extra stitch that will disappear in a k2 tog or a p2 tog later on.

There is more to come, and I do have some crochet projects, but right now I don't have any crochet projects, but I am in need to finish with all the knit projects at hand. Thanks for stopping by.
