Pillar Afghan by ErikDShipley Pillar Afghan by ErikDShipley
Made this a couple of weeks ago. Started using a new yarn called Noro. The colors are awesome in it but a little difficult to work with. This is another pattern I made up.

Yeah, nice and warm. Thanks. It is crochet. I am really slow at knitting so I only knit scarves and hats. Eventually I want to knit a blanket.

I've yet to learn to knit... I like crochet, with the repeatition, I can watch t.v. and not miss a stitch... i think with knitting, I'd have to pay more attention! Good luck with your blanket :)

I play the piano,... My father bought a piano when I was 5.. And I just started to sit down and pick out songs to play,...Then about a year later I started taking lessons. And when I was 13 ... I took music @ ECU,.. Do you know of our college here? East Carolina University? well @ age 13 I took college piano with college students,..So I play both by ear and read music,too..I can play anything and it is my life,.. I took about 10 years all together in piano.. I play all types of music too,.. from classical to blues to country and spiritual, pop .. You name it I play it!! LOL ;) I also play a little guitar,.. ,..
It is a true talent that I was born with ..This is where my passion lies,..And..Music sometimes is my muse for my artwork..LOL ;)

Nice work. Yes the colours are lovely.
My Dad used to crochet as a soldier during the war to occupy spare time. He made dolls' clothes for me!

My old bones are fairly screaming for it. I cannot stand the cold, and the arthritis makes it worse every passing year. :(

I bet. I must have a little in my hands because when it gets really cold/wet my fingers feel kinda stiff. I don't want to get any older. I already feel like I am 90. hahaha

I used to know how to crochet...but that was long ago. I love any kind of fiber art, weaving, knitting, crocheting! That's just cool :D

:iconerikdshipley:
ErikDShipley Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2009
Yeah, its great. There is a website called ravelry.com that is devoted to fiber arts. Oh...I think if you once knew how to crochet you could do it again.
