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!

"Heracles" a lace scarf

 "Heracles" a lace scarf 

Heracles Collage ver 2A

Heracles name comes from Hēra, “Hera”, and kleos, “glory”, born Alcaeus, was a divine hero in Greek mythology, the son of Zeus and Alcmene (and half-brother) of Perseus. He was the greatest of the Greek heroes, a paragon of masculinity, and the ancestor of royal clans.

A lace scarf in my series of Men lace attire. It is a unisex item and a timeless piece. It has strong, yet delicate, lines to appease the muses. Embrace the divine spark within you and wear it with pride.
This project may be any size. You may use different yarns and different size needles. It is a fun project. I have found that it is always good to count your stitches. Whenever I am missing a stitch it is usually a yarn over that fell off. You will always have 41 stitches.
