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!

Risa is rising

I have never done  Fair Isle socks and I can tell you is a lot more difficult than I want to admit. Nevertheless if you are accustomed to make socks in this fashion , you will find it a breeze.  I started this project on DPNs, but quickly decided to go on two circulars.  The circulars are  US 1 as well , but 2.5 mm instead of 2.25 mm.  I had to rip to the beginning of the Color pattern, because I was not able to let the floats relax.  Actually with two circulars I can wear them after a few rows or every row and see how they are fitting. I say it is better than making socks that do not fit.  I am enjoying the pattern more, and now that I figured how to update the file on Ravelry, I am a lot happier. It came with the right amount of stitches. This is my relaxing project and I can tell you it is fun. Hope to have more pictures as the week comes along.  Thanks for stopping by!
