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!

As the whorls go around

Here you have my latest spinning project.  It is gotland fiber and it is very soft.  Well it is soft once you wash it.  I noticed that it was just a little dirty, not much.  I found this breed to be a very easy to spin  because is a very luxurious fiber.  Long staple about 3 to 5 inches.  I got 224 grams, with about 386 yards!

Here is another one, this time BFL, 105 grams,  with a yield of about 198 yards.  It is very springy and cushy.  It was easier to spin that what I expected.
