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!

Klingon Honor Kilt Hose

They are not Klingon, but given the pointy sticks that I am using, they look more like pain sticks of the Klingon kind.   These Sock is very comfortable and it only took 75 grams of the 100 grams from the skein.  I used Cascade Heritage yarn.  I did not do the heel flap reinforced, but I did make it with US 0 , 2mm dpns , picked up the gusset and decreased, continued the body on size 0.  This made a big difference in the way the fit my foot, I  must use the cliche, fits my foot like a glove. The pattern was modified and I learned a lot about how I knit which is the main purpose of the Knit Along or KAL.  I always tell  people to observe the way the crochet or knit to learn what to do.  I casted on the second cuff using a circular needle, and instead of starting with the Round with a cable, I started with a plain Round. It is a lot easier to graft a non cable Round. This is the best fitting sock I have ever made in my life, and I am hoping to make some more. Thanks for stopping by!
