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 Tablet and A Cardigan

The Tablet is making my life a lot more interesting and I am enjoying it a lot. I am not using it as much as I use my laptop. It is just a tablet, lighter than a laptop, and you can get your mail as well. I just don't know that I would see a movie on it, yet it may happen. The main purpose of this post is to tell you about the adventures of my Cardigan Making. Only a bit of the journey. CardiganWIP (1)
This pattern is by Lion Brand and it is a fantastic pattern. Guys like me who are short and beefy , do have a problem making most of these garments. I Made the body for the medium size, but I should have made the sleeves for the smaller size. What has happen with the sleeves as I have attachments is that I will have some funky shoulder pads.  I will have to show you in another post with other pictures.  This will get pockets, and I am at the point of making the button band. I learned how to make the mattress stitch for reverse stockinette and it looks fantastic, it is so simple and easy.  I hope you have a great rest of the week.  Tomorrow I have  a dentist for cleaning, I had no cavities, which is fantastic. Thanks for stopping by!
