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!

Stitches West 2012

AnzulaFiberCorriedale (1) Stitches West 2012 is still going. I went through public transportation from San Francisco to Santa Clara, it is longer than driving, but fun. I was looking for things for my Survival Pod Partner in one of my groups. I was also looking for fiber to spin to make some yarn for new Teddy Bears. I am creating my own Pattern, because I want a Teddy Bear that Can Sit without problems and that has some shaping to the feet. I want to make it on the round and make it easy to be stuffed. I want it to have nice ears, but stay tuned, It is coming out in a few weeks.

This was my outfit today and it brought me a lot of compliments and questions about where I was from. A lot of people thought this was some ethnic wear. I told them I was from the old USA and that it is just how I dress. I don't mind calling people's attention, but you have to be prepared for any kinds of questions.
This is another fiber , natural that I want to spin to make a teed for my new Teddy Bears. metalyarnguide This is something I have not seen before and someone mentioned it to me, I got two , one for me and one for my swap partner. I want to see how it works and see if I like it more than the plastic one from clover. LoloBar
These balms are fantastic for your hands. This bar I got is whole body type. Plain Jane has no fragrance, I got one with a hint of Lavender. KnitifactsCotswold This is another fiber I want to make into a tweed with the one above. This is the first clippings from the baby lamb, the staple is shorter but should be soft.

No when they asked me where I was from I did not say Endor, nor was I wearing the fiber like this,but I thought it would be fun to give you something to laugh. Thanks for stopping by!
