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 am also sharing my SECRET persona, Lt. DAX, my life in code while living in Bajor. Maybe fiction maybe not is up to you to decide. Peldor Joi!!!

Two Pockets no waiting
I thought that this was going to be more difficult. It wasn't, because I thought about it. I wanted to cut into the fabric and then pick up stitches. That was a good idea, but not the best idea. I was afraid that there was going to be a lot of unraveling and I was not going to put myself through that.
You see, the main issue and challenge is where to put the pocket. Given the fact that I had to select three rows, I had a very hard time trying to decide which 3. The fact that the ones I wanted were not the best ones got me to decide that it would be better to create another strategy. I guess the easiest one was to pick part of the pattern in smaller needles and create a swatch that I would be using as the pocket cover.
I picked 36 sts, and 6 of those were kind of as selvedge. I have to say that I am very proud of myself. I can make afterthought pockets anytime without fear of failure. Thanks for stopping by.
