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!

Two Ply Dr. Phlox

This is the yarn before it got plied.  I was able to spin the whole 560 yards on this spindle, since it is a two ply, it became abour 280 something yards.  I have made a skein which is the picture you see below.  This picture below is before I put it in a bath of Eucalan wool Soap and some vinegar, then after that I will whack my yarn  and let it dry in the bathroom until a day or so.  I believe I may have enough for a pair of mittens , a hat or a small scarf.  I do not have enough for a pair of socks, but if I mix another yarn, it could be a lot of fun.
There will be more drop spindle spinning.  I need to practice with the drop spindle.  Every day is good for drop spindle , 15 minutes to 30 minutes a day.  I have some nifty Alpaca and some BFL to practice later on.  I hope you enjoy the yarn experienc that I am sharing and come by later on.  Thanks for stopping by.
