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!

Hikoo Simplicity Yarns a Skacel Adventure

Sometimes you find a yarn that is the perfect yarn for the craft you are doing. HiKoo Simplicity happens to be a really nice yarn for my crafting needs. What a Palette of Colour , oh so inspiring. This is what I have to play with for the next few weeks to bring you some Fall Magic to you.  I am hoping to design some cool stuff .Simplicity is machine washable merino , acrylic and nylon blend, great for socks for also for bags ,scarves and hats, what else can you ask for ? Color? You bet, the Simplicity Colour Palette is getting richer by the day, I do have my favorite colors, yet I like them all.

In the works in progress, there is what  I believe  will become a triangular Shawl-scarf inspired by West Knits designs; there  may be 3 hats or 4, some fingerless mittens, maybe even a bag.  Hopefully they will be on Tapestry Crochet, Crochet color work or Fair Isle Crochet if you want to call it that way. I am hoping to bring texture and fun color combinations to you for the Fall season, in expectations of Holiday Gifting. I hope you have a great rest of the week and there is more coming during the weekend as I test yarns and make things for gifting. Thanks for stopping by!
