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!

November 11 WIP and more

I am aiming at finishing this scarf this month. I am enjoying the making of this Tunisian Crochet Short Rows Scarf ,by Kim Guzman, a lot.  It is just fantastic and believe me if you want to test your knowledge of Short Rows in Tunisian Crochet this is your pattern.  You also get to make Reversed Tunisian Knit Stitch and Regular Knit Stitch. This is a fingering weight sock yarn.  I really can't wait to finish it , then block it.ApollosScarf (1)
The picture below is the fuzzy image of the swatches I have been making for my newest  Scarf Pattern, I am using dk weight yarn and it is a great looking scarf. I am hoping to have it finished by the end of Monday or Tuesday and publish it.    It is thinking outside the box for me and creating a scarf with two options of making it, is all up to you. I like them both, but more to come.
What you are seeing in the picture below is a crochet chain.  I am about to make a Double crochet.   If you look carefully there is a little bump that comes up.  I am yarn over and put my hook through this bump ready to make my double crochet.  This is what they call the Purl Bump. At any rate, when you are done crocheting or casting on in the Knit fashion like this, the bottom of the Row has two parallel bars, very tidy and very nice to work with.  I am creating a new Scarf Pattern on worsted weight and on DK weight and I hope that you enjoy the pattern as much as I have been doing making it. Welcome to November 2011, thanks for stopping by!
