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!

A Klingon Ambassador

KlingonSocksetPainsticks (4)
The first sock is finished and the second one has been started.  I guess I did not know what to expect from fair Isle Socks, this is definitely a great pattern to really push these techniques to the front of the line.  The reason behind is that some floats may be longer than 6 stitches, so this gives you the opportunity to practice hiding them with the yarn wrapping technique.  Nevertheless I can tell you that I am not very happy with the blue-black Cascade Heritage as far as color goes, but is OK.  The red Wollemeisse is vibrant and rich, a great yarn to handle I can see the attraction people have to it, great quality, big amount of yardage and colors that are to dye for. So here is my first Sock and I will leave you to your weekend.  I am going to a Picnic I did not know and I will take my camera and my yarn to design some kind of hat that is simple , or maybe not that simple.  Thanks for stopping by.
