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!

Yarn, Unspun fiber and Hemlock Throw

So the story starts with a great garage sale in which I got all this yarn and buttons for $5.00, there are two skeins of mohair, and some other yummy blends. The buttons where a great freebie and as I have been searching for buttons , let me tell you they are not cheap.
I was very lucky the other day as I bought some Unspun Camel wool from a Friend of mine whi is a crocheter. She is allergic to all kinds of wool, but camel wool seems to be great for her. She got a skein of the wool plus about 6 ounces of unspun yarn. I want to card it with some silk and make some yummy yarn. Tussah silk will look great with this wool.

SO here I am with my cousin it custome, or in Spanish we called hi Uncle THing from the Adams. Unblocked this Hemlock Ring Throw is a bit unruly.

I started to block it from the middle out with the steam iron and pinning it as I went accross, so I did all the points, that's when I noticed that someohow I dropped a stitch, I felt so lucky because it would have unraveld and I would have been unhappy. No problems there I fixed the dropped stitch.
Resting on it was a great joy, the wool softens nicely and takes a different shape. Wool is the way to go with this throw.I want to thank you for stopping by and I hope you have a great Holiday !
