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!

Athena's Fall Shawl
Just ready for the fall. I decided to make this shawl on a DK weight and I was very delighted with the results. Athena's is my own design. It is a very short design no chart involved, but it recreates the essence of Spider webs in the shawl. I really love this shawl made on a 12.00 mm or size 17 US needles, from the Addi collection.
I am showing you the best shots I consider shows you the delightful and playful characteristics of this shawl. It is modern, yet it has enough lace to keep you busy and some challenges along the way. I find it is versatile enough that you can wear it as a scarf if you so desire. I used almost 100 grams of Knit Picks overspun DK/Sport yarn and it works like a charm. There are enough place for the torque to travel and no bias at all. There is another one coming on a different weight and different yarn, stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by.
