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!

Kilthose and Lace-Garn

The Pattern is Kilravock, sounds like a Klingon Word and perhaps it is in some fashion. For a long time, I have been looking at making my Kilt hoses, not because they are cheaper to make, but because it makes me feel proud that I made my own kilt hoses. The pattern can use some better writing, but it is my preference and in no way changes the fact that it is a fantastic pattern. This is a pattern to make with some beautiful Woolmeise Twin yarn, I am thinking of the Silver gray, or the Safran, or even the Golden Pear. The greens are not bad either. At this time I am using Cascade Heritage in Moss green, to let the Celtic Heritage show. Being from Spanish Ancestry there is some Celtic there lol.
These days the wollemeise Store is having a sale at the brick and mortar store in Germany. I am so glad I am not there lol. I have to tell you , the quality of this yarn is amazing, the colors of course are out of this world. When I get the sock yarn I want , in the colorway I want, I will make another pair of Kilt Hose.  Below is a skein of Wollemeise Lace-Garn, which I guess translates to lace yarn, but don't quote me on that.  This was a gift from a friend, Kerry Shannon, which by the way gifted  the first Wollemeise skein  I ever had in my stash. Of course this yarn won't be this color for too long.  I will have to research which color I want to turn this skein into. There will be pictures, I promise.  Thanks for stopping by!
