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!

Triton Mitts wip

Originally uploaded by Crafty Andy
This pattern is very fast indeed. I like using 5 dps because they are very useful. In this pattern it calls for 8 stitches to be put on waste yarn, so I leave them on a dpn and move the rest to the other dpns. WHat I found interesting about this project is the fact that I have some some silk. WHen I am knitting or crocheting with this Noro Silk Garden I can tell it has silk by the touch.

For those of you who are afraid of dpns, (Naomi) just try a pair of fingerless mitts . The first time I did my dpns I was just aiming at dropping them , playing with them, taking out the needles, shaking them to see how I would recover. I will still have some Noro Left, I have to see what I come up with so that there is none left. Actually I will keep about 3 meters of it for repairing purposes. Thanks for stopping by.
