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!

Featured at Malabrigo yarns

I was very pleased to see my pattern being showcased at Malabrigo  as one of the Patterns online for the Arroyo yarn.  There are so many great patterns and Malabrigo is a very kind company as well. You can find it HERE and it has no name for now, as I forgot in my excitement and haste.  I sent them an email letting them now the name is  "Enconium" .

This is also another pattern that I am working on for Malabrigo Arroyo.  It is a lace hat that may be a Tam if you change needle size and block it to size.  I decided to test the pattern repetition at a scale that was going to be easy for me.

Here you see the pattern is waiting for the test to become final. I am using Intwined Pattern Studio to create the pattern. I got to realize that it is a tool, but that I still need to test the pattern The software will allow you to put any Stitch anywhere you want, like a k3tog on the round following a 2 stitch count. So you will have to make sure that the stitch count matches, because the software does not count,lol, you need to.  Anyway I have a pair of socks that I want to work on and I need to make another 1/2 inch on the ribbing of the hat.  Hope you have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
