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!

Punto Reves, Man knits Pink, reviews

Life is yours for the taking and there is so much to do and to see while on this plane.  I went to Punto Reves Yarn Shop in Altamira, and what an experience it is.  I am still glowing from the fun I had with the group. I learned to knit Left handed. What a hoot. I am making my niece a scarf on this wonderful yarn from Katia called Temis, is an acrylic,cotton,nylon blend, perfect for the tropics  and ver washable. This yarn is thick and thin and it is a lot of wfun to work with.  I recommend the yarn for lacy work with minimal knitting or crochet. This scarf is all in Knit Stitch on US 13.  I am hoping to visit the store again next week.  Their website is WWW.PuntoReves.com  .  If you are ever in Puerto Rico this is a must see. They have classes of lots of different crafts that are needle related. I was very impressed with the service , the friendliness and the vast knowledge of subjects in the arts that they have to share.CraftyAndySticksAndPink (2)
If you think this is the only project I have during my vacation you are mistaken.  I am working on a Tapestry Crochet Hat .  It will be a very funky Winter Hat, I hope people enjoy making it as much as I enjoy designing them.   Can't show you a picture yet, but I can tell you there is a Knit hat in the works as well.  It just struck me like a rain in the rainforrest.  Hope you are having a great November, I believe this has been the most fun time I have had in Puerto Rico, while visiting.  It is nice to sit and crochet or knit with fellow crafters.  Pina COlada por favor, stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by!
