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!

Vanna's Choice Ribbons

Vanna's choice is a very  diverse yarn , but not one of my favorites for this kind of work.  Tapestry Crochet and dealing with a 4mm hook I don't know if it is the recommended size or not, but that size of hook 4 mm is not very compatible with this yarn  and this hat, but it can be done. After spending a bit of time trying to figure out how to crochet with this yarn, I have to say that I am still not very crazy about it for crochet. I have knitted with it and have had no problems at all, but crochet is a challenge, specially if you hold the hook like a pencil, which is the way I do.  Anyway I am working on this hat , on this yarn to give people choices of yarns.  It is very versatile and can be made in many  kinds of yarns.  I wanted to include Vanna's choice as I have a bunch to work with.  This yarn is very soft as far as acrylic goes, washes well and perhaps with a bigger hook. This is my take on the Vanna's choice. I would say if you are a knitter this is a perfectly good yarn for you, crocheters beware of how you hold your hook and I would say do a test at the store.  Thanks for stopping by!
