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!

You spin me round round Baby

Here what you see is some silk roving that has been hand dyed by me with food coloring. It is different than wool the material is very light and needs to soak and sink by itself. You can help it a bit. I am excited as this is my first time dyeing pure silk and then spinning some which I will have pictures some other day. At this time the silk is drying.

Here is just some of the wool roving I like to paint in my favorite colors. I find that this makes a great combination when plied together.
Here is a video of me spinning and showing you some other stuff that I have shared with you before.

Thanks for stopping by!
