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!

Toe ups and Man's Shawl

Being a bit quiet during these days , maybe because I am turning 50 , maybe because I am busy as well.  I finished the Scorpia Memories Toe -Up socks and what a success they were.  I am very happy wit the outcome of the pattern that I modified from the  Antje Gillingham books.

This is my next challenge which is  a man's Scarf / shawl.  If you make it on fingering weight yarn  or worsted weight, depending on the needles that you use and the blocking technique you may have both.  I am aiming for a shawl like scarf.  It will be offered for sale soon, right now is in the testing stages.  I am hoping to make a woman's shawl as well, but that is in the world of ideas at the moment.  Don't be fooled it will be this  shawl with a bit of a twist so that it can be more delicate in its look than this one.  In the end , let it be said by me here, do not let anyone tell you what you can or can not wear it is your choice, designers have suggestions not mandates.  I will keep you posted and thanks for stopping by!
