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!

Happy Thanksgiving & sweater in progress

Happy Thanksgiving everyone from San Francisco, California. We had a quiet home meal, everybody was busy. Just me and Michael this year.
We had a different Thanksgiving dinner with Home Curried Lamb, veggies bake with the lamb, salad, oyster dressing and crescent rolls, red wine never fails as well and sparkling water. I am very thankful for the greatness and abundance in my life. I am blessed beyond my fondest dreams.
As you can tell I am working on the sleeves of this sweater. I was going to make it a vest, because I thought I used all the yarn, but it was hidden under more yarn and I rediscovered the yarn the other day . I am very happy to present you the start of the sleeves which are a lot further by the time this picture is posted.
The front and back of the sweater has been knitted together in a three needle bind off. I did not finish the back and used a lifeline then I used the three needle bind off to have a great join and beautiful termination.

I am not sure how long the sleeves will be as this is definitely a dropped shoulder sweater. I am hoping to have it done by the end of the weekend. Happy Thanksgiving everyone and thanks for stopping by.
